The country/rock band’s next road trip begins in March with a gig in Lakeland, Fla.
Kevin Costner & Modern West formed in 2005 when the actor/musician reunited with two of his bandmates from his first band, Roving Boy – songwriter John Coinman and bassist Blair Forward – along with drummer Larry Cobbs, vocalist/guitarist Park Chisolm and guitarist/producer Teddy Morgan. Bobby Yang, Roddy Chong and Luke Bulla take turns filling in on fiddle.
In 2008 the band released its debut, Untold Truths. Since then Kevin Costner & Modern put out 2009’s European album, Turn It On, and 2011’s From Where I Stand.
“I always thought that music could build a stronger, more personal moment with people,” Costner said. “It could create an opportunity for genuine exchange much greater than a movie, TV interview or magazine. It would be real, full of mistakes and without apology. But most of all, there would be a chance to have some fun.”
The band’s 2012 tour begins March 28 in Lakeland, Fla., at Youkey Theatre. Before leaving Florida Modern West plays Fort Pierce’s Sunrise Theatre March 31.
The rest of the tour is dedicated to shows on the East Coast along with one gig in Nashville and a few stops in Canada.
Additional dates include Charleston, S.C., at the Music Farm April 1; Annapolis, Md., at Rams Head On Stage April 3-4; Cranston, R.I., at the RI Center For the Arts at Park Theatre April 7; New York City’s City Winery April 9; Norfolk, Conn., at Infinity Hall April 11; and Nashville’s Exit/In April 14.
The Canadian headline show are booked at Windsor, Ontario, at Caesars Windsor “The Colosseum” April 13 and Regina, Saskatchewan, at Casino Regina Show Lounge June 30. The last date of the tour is a July 1 appearance at Bud Country Fever in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
