The one constant in Dalton & the Sheriffs’ remarkable rise from three-hour sets in the barrooms of Boston, to national stages such as CMA Fest, is the band’s authenticity.
Brian Scully (vocals/acoustic guitar), Jon Silva (lead guitar), James Zaner (drums), Sam Bouve (bass) and Ryan Jackson (keys/guitars) rip through shows with frenetic energy, perhaps best described as country music, tinged with Americana heartland vibes, and played with a bar-friendly edge-of-punk rowdiness. Everyone sings along. The patrons are as much a part of the show as the band itself. The result is a live band that manages to make every show -- from small clubs to the largest of festivals -- feel a little like a reunion of like-minded souls at their favorite local bar.
