About the Event
'Dirty South' Hits The Side Room Lounge inside Ralston Arena on Wednesday, April 25
Spend the Evening with Hubbell, NE Native, Lucas Hoge
(Ralston, NE April 5, 2018) Wednesday Night, the 25 of April, you're invited to spend the evening with country singer/songwriter, Lucas Hoge. This night of music will begin at 8pm at the Side Room Lounge inside the Ralston Arena. Tickets will be available online, in person and by phone at 10am on Friday, April 13.
Hoge’s journey began in Hubbell, Nebraska, a small town of only 44 people. Like many entertainers, he first honed his musical skills in church. “My family was
pretty much the whole choir at our church,” Hoge remembers with a smile. “My mom and dad had a worship band and that’s when I started playing drums, then it led me to guitar and to writing songs.
I loved the artist/writers. I loved hearing them sing all their own songs,” he says of people like Garth Brooks, Paul Overstreet, Kenny Chesney and others who penned their own hits.
Whether he’s delivering a breezy summer anthem like “Flip Flops,” the poignant ballad “Who’s Gonna Be There,” which he penned for a hometown friend who died much too young, or giving his audience songs that celebrate their lifestyle like his current single “Dirty South,” Hoge engages listeners with his warm, evocative vocals and emotional authenticity.
“Dirty South” is a song I co-wrote with Troy Johnson and Jack Williams, Hoge relates. “Jack used to tour with The Who for 20 years as a guitar guy. We all got in the room for the first time and Jack put down a little melody thing. I thought it was really cool so we sat there and just cranked this song out. It has a very deep-south swampy feel to it.
