July 14th - The New City Cowboys

The New City Cowboys are a group of country music lovin' lifelong friends based, of all places, just south of Boston Massachusetts.  They’ve been performing for years as The Armstrong Brothers band to popular acclaim throughout the South Shore since the 1980’s. But they love the new music coming out of Nashville so much that five years ago they formed their new band, The New City Cowboys, to bring the “New Nashville Sound” to the Boston area. Their goal is to make sure that you have as good a time listening to their favorite country music as they do performing it for you!
The New City Cowboys are: Jim and Joe Armstrong, Bill Holbrook, as well as occasional visiting musicians and longtime ‘friends of the band”, performing the country music we love from the likes of Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, and others.
