Apart, the Drakes have backed up a list that ranges from Alice Cooper to Toni Price. Together Matt Giles, Michael "Cornbread" Traylor, Ron Flynt, Vicente Rodriguez, and Tom Gillam make a joyful noise that recalls the world's greatest bar band, NRBQ. Pretense-free originals and potent covers of songs from Eddie Hinton, J.J. Cale, and Terry Allen are all performed with skill and verve to make the Drakes, at the very least, Austin's greatest bar band.
