EUGENE CHRYSLER

 

 

 

            Eugene Chrysler’s musical style can be best summed up as a toe tappin’, fun lovin’, sometimes quirky mix of honky-tonk, western swing, rockabilly, and blues. As with the rest of the Dusters, Eugene is a star in his own right with two CD’s to his credit, the most recent being “Hillbilly Shakespeare”, recorded down in Austin, Texas. In addition to performing and recording, Eugene also directs music videos. 
       he was nominated for a GRAMMY Award for his direction of the documentary depicting “the making of” Asleep At The Wheel’s new Bob Wills tribute CD on the DreamWorks label.  Also, two music videos from his first recording, “I Saw the Light... but it was neon” have appeared on both TNN and CMT. 
       Other projects where Eugene’s music has been featured include a couple of episodes of the NBC show “LAW AND ORDER”, a Bob Uecker beer commercial,  and a History Channel show entitled “Highway Hangouts”.  Released last year, the film “Three Seasons” has two songs from Eugene’s new recording.
       In 2001, he won the CMT Music Video Awards (Best Event video of the year)  In 2002, he was nominated for 2 Emmy awards and won them both. ENTERTAINMENT

T. J. Walker

 


           T. J. is a talented pianist in the Chicago Blues tradition. T. J. embarked on his music career as a teenager playing with "the old guys" in such bands as K. D. and the Dynatones, Little Jimmy and the Starlights, Flatbush Avenue and The Drivers. He attended Berklee College of Music, but  gave up his studies prematurely to join the Navy. Once in the Navy, he got married and started a family, and the music, no longer a priority, was put on the back burner. But only for awhile, since you can’t keep a good musician down. Eventually, he became active once more. He performed with some rock cover bands before meeting and joining Roadside Louie as a regular Duster,  adding his own energetic zeal to to the ensemble. When he's not playing with Roadside, he freelances on occasion, and also performs with a local acting company.
