CITY MOON is developing a show very close to it's hearts. A tribute show to Hank Williams Sr (www.myspace.com/hankwilliamssrtribute) . This show is being developed to be as authentic as possible from the style of dress, instruments and musical performance. We utilize bits of info from the 1930's to the 1950's and incorporate them into the show. We want the audience to remember when they were young, listening to the real thing on the family radio, while they were sitting in the living room or on the front porch.
