Copper Still Taproom welcomes Hotwax and the Splinters on stage from 9 pm until midnight on Saturday, May 26 in Thomasville.
Hotwax and the Splinters are a Bluegrass Band that is made up of five very unique and different musicians. Up until just about a year ago, they didn’t even know each other with the exception of Clyde & David. They have been Splinters from years ago with different members. This is the third Generation of Hotwax and the Splinters. They are a Traditional Bluegrass Band, first and foremost. They also perform "Special Shows" that may consist of "Picking on..." where they feature one pop, country, or rock group and give you the Bluegrass version of it! The band gets their name from an old timey way of extracting a splinter from your finger or toe. Known as the “Firecracker” & jumpin' from one side of the stage to the other is Clyde Lewis on the Lead Vocals and Mandolin, Lead Vocalist/Guitarist Ed Renn, Nathan Farlow on the Dobro/Vocals, and on the Doghouse Bass/Vocals is Jeff Rumsey. And our newest edition to the group, they welcome back David Medlin on the Banjo! Hotwax and the Splinters has been picking for over 20 years now with band members changing over the years with the likes of Michael Wood Watson, James O'Neal, Randy Wagoner, Brad Sowers, Jeremy Wood, and many other special guests!
