The Mighty Orq says
Mighty Orq & The Unusuals perform at Houston's finest Americana venue in celebration of Orq's birthday. A night not to be missed with special guests, and more! John Egan opens.

The band features Mighty Orq on vocals and guitars, James Rose on percussion and mandolin, Jeremy Pierce on drums and backing vocals, and Westside Johnny on bass.

Since 2002 The Mighty Orq has been performing solo and with his band across the US and Europe. He has won multiple awards, released six albums, and an instructional DVD for solo resonator slide guitar. He is a uniquely talented singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist with a focus in the American Roots Music genres.

Always known as a stand-out guitarist and vocalist, over the last 15 years Orq has matured both as a writer and arranger. Where early-on the musical emphasis was on raucous drum and guitar lines, now Orq takes a more song-centered approach letting songs dictate the instrumentation rather than the other way around . New compositions such as “Love In A Hurricane,” “Say It With Silence,” and the Weissenborn instrumental “Cannon Ball” from the album entitled “Love In A Hurricane” feature an experienced composer, instrumentalist, and singer beginning to reach his stride.

Musician John Egan has a unique sound ranging from traditional country blues to a more modern songwriter style. He is a masterfully skilled guitar player who uses poetic lyrics and vintage resonator guitars to create an expressive personal music. Often performing solo, Egan’s guitar style includes, in effect, playing bass, lead, and percussion, all at the same time. He says, “the rarefied air where Lightnin’ Hopkins met Townes Van Zandt serves as an inspiration and an ideal.”

He has immersed himself into his music resulting in a wide body of work that documents the progression of an artistic life. Garnering local acclaim and a mention in the New York Times, Egan's last two releases set the stage for a return to his roots. On Magnolia City he produces a 10-song collection featuring just his voice, stomping boots, and a National Steel guitar that focuses on his live playing and songwriting. It is available everywhere on April 7, 2017.
