Tonight’s Twilight Tunes is a tip of the Stetson to Texas country music fans.
The Bird Dogs, an Argyle-based quintet, is headed up by George Dunham — best known as the morning co-host on KTCK-AM “The Ticket.”
While the Bird Dogs really deliver more rock than country, Dunham’s turn of phrase and Texas twang give the Dogs a dusty prairie finish — as do the pedal steel and occasional fiddle.
The Bird Dogs released an album in 2010, and their sophomore record is due out this summer.
The Bird Dogs are: Dunham on vocals and guitar, Steve Porcari on guitar, Clay Powers on pedal steel guitar, Travis Behl on bass and Bryant “Pablo” Russell on drums.
Twilight Tunes concerts are from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays on the lawn of the Courthouse on the Square, 110 W. Hickory St.
Attendees are welcome to bring blankets and chairs. Locals and visitors are urged to buy dinner from nearby restaurants — or linger after the music to enjoy desserts and drinks.
The Denton Main Street Association presents the weekly concert series through July 3, with a bonus morning concert on the Fourth of July after the annual parade through downtown.
Up next week at Twilight Tunes: pop music by the Poor Kings.
