Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers received some extra wind in the sails as the soul band strikes out on a southern U.S. tour.
Last night, the band played its first date on a 13-stop tour in Dallas. Before that, Josh Hoyer and The Shadowboxers’ self-titled February release finished the year in the second spot on Roots Music Report’s soul chart, right below Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. It’s also the only self-released record to crack the top 30, according to Roots Music Report.
Tonight, Hoyer and crew play Stubb’s BBQ in Austin. Check out the full tour dates here.
