THE SKINNYPour yourself a stiff one – cheap bourbon, if you please – and prop your elbows on the bar while you take a listen to The Barstool Romeos. The Barstool Romeos – Mike McGill and Andy Pirkle on guitar, Eric Keeble on percussion, and Josh Sidman on bass – is a Knoxville, Tennessee, outfit that offers up its brand of countrified rock and roll straight with no chaser. These Knoxville honky tonk heroes are out and about sharing the sounds of their debut record, Twisted Steel & Sex Appeal.FOR FANS OFMerle Haggard, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Jompson Brothers, James McMurtryTHEY SAID IT“The Barstool Romeos are what great country music and rock ‘n’ roll is all about. Their music is fun, thoughtful and real. Mike McGill and Andy Pirkle sound like they were born in a honky tonk and bathed in beer every night. (They still kind of smell that way.) They harmonize like angels who fell out of heaven into a bucket of barbecue. These are guys who used the work of Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Del Reeves and, maybe, the early Allman Brothers as their musical Bible and win converts every time they play. Twisted Steel & Sex Appeal is one of the best albums of 2013 and one of the best debuts I’ve heard.” – Wayne Bledsoe, Knoxville Sentinel Entertainment Writer & Host of WDVX’s “All Over The Road” ON STAGEThe Barstool Romeos just wrapped up a weekend opening for outlaw country songstress Elizabeth Cook in Maryville, Tennessee. Honky tonk fans can catch the band on April 19th at The Hummingbird Taproom & Stage in Macon, Georgia, on April 20th in Cowan, Tennessee, at Brown’s Pool Room, and at Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria in Knoxville on Apri 27th.IN THEIR OWN WORDS“We all come from an eclectic mix of musical backgrounds. I come from a country, bluegrass, gospel background. Andy was raised on country but ended up in a punk band. We love the blues and rock and roll and we have been influenced by everyone from Merle Haggard and The Louvin Brother’s harmonies to ZZ Top, AC/DC, and John Lee Hooker. In this band, it is all about the song. We love real music, just anything that has substance.”– Songwriter/guitarist Mike McGill on The Barstool Romeos’ influencesON THE WEBFor more on The Barstool Romeos, point the whiskey bottle in your browser to http://www.reverbnation.com/barstoolromeos for information on shows, music, and video clips.

Melius’ new reward, culled from friends and family, is quadruple the $25,000 that Crime Stoppers is offering for tips in the Long Island Serial Killer probe—an amount that authorities have said was the biggest in county history.“There’s a $100,000 reward now to get information to solve this crime and bring to justice who is responsible,” Melius said a video statement released to the media. “I have been told by…friends that with conversations and people they know that law enforcement has said it could definitely be a help and that’s why they came forward.”The 70-year-old prolific political campaign donor—who lives at the 109,000-square-foot French-style chateau in Huntington that he turned into a catering hall, hotel and restaurant—was getting into his car when the masked shooter opened fire at point-blank range, hitting Melius in the head at about 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 24, 2014. The attacker did not say a word.READ MORE: Gunfire at the Castle: Who Shot Oheka’s Owner? And Why? Melius was on his way to have lunch with former U.S. Sen. Al D’Amato—one of the many powerful attendees at Melius’ Oheka card games—when the bullets started flying. He was taken to North Shore-Long Island Jewish Hospital in Manhasset, where he underwent emergency surgery before returning home a week later.Police declined to comment Monday on the status of the continuing investigation and authorities have not named any suspects. They have previously declined to discuss whether they believe more than one person was involved or if they have any suspected motives.Four months after the shooting, investigators released surveillance camera images of the shooter’s getaway vehicle: an older model, Khaki-metal-colored four-door Jeep Grand Cherokee. Although the castle’s security cameras captured images of the SUV, there was no description of the shooter.Oheka Castle, the former estate of financial tycoon Otto Kahn, has also been host to many high-profile weddings, such as that of the disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner and Hillary Rodham Clinton aide Huma Abedin (which was officiated by former President Bill Clinton), and Kevin Jonas of The Jonas Brothers.“The detectives assigned to my case have been very comforting to me, informative, give me great confidence that they will find out who do this,” Melius said. “I know that they’re working very hard at it and I know that no resources have been cut from them. They are actively trying to solve this case.”Suffolk County police ask that anyone with information about this case call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. Melius also set up a hotline for tips in the case, asking tipsters to call 631-912-6969. All calls will be kept confidential.
