The Calf Branders - Good Enuff!?

The Calf Branders are all cowboys that brand calves for a living. They got started playing their original music for the tired cowboys and cowgirls after the calf branding at the round-up is all done. They perform and write songs about what they do.  They also sing about Rodeo, Trucks, being a Country performer in a citified world, and drinking whiskey.

There are 3 lead vocalists in the band, including Lance Romance aka Big Hank, from the rockabilly band, the Hillbilly Hellcats.
