    Kingston Trio Tribute

    The County Line Trio performs their tribute to the famous Kingston Trio. Their shows are filled with the many hit songs of the Trio and a delightful helping of tongue-in-cheek humor that would make even the Smothers Brothers envious.

    With the original Kingston Trio constantly topping the charts with songs like "Tom Dooley," "Lemon Tree," "This Land is Your Land," "Scotch and Soda," and "A Worried Man— songs so timeless they literally travel the decades with new fans — it is no wonder why in 1969, three guys decided they were going to be a Kingston Trio tribute band. Original members of that band — Millbrae-raised Tod Brendlen on vocals, banjo and guitar, San Mateo-raised Dean Hammer on vocals, guitar and conga drum, and Fort Bragg-born Bud Olsen on vocals and guitar — were so good, the Kingston Trio were fans. In fact, they've been called the "museum version" of the Kingston Trio. Recently, Bob Lawrence, once an early part time member of the band, joined County Line as a regular member, playing guitar, banjo and joining in the vocals. This is a return engagement, and a word of advice to ticket buyers, last year's concert was packed.

    The County Line Trio has opened shows for (the late) comedian Pat Paulsen, former Limelighter Glenn Yarbrough, country-pop singer Teri Gibbs, and singer/songwriter and former member of the Kingston Trio, 1961-1967, the late John Stewart.

    The band notes, "There is still a wealth of enthusiasts longing for that 'original sound' which consisted of simple arrangements of three part harmony accompanied by acoustic guitars and banjo performed with spirited gusto." And the band is very faithful to original Kingston Trio arrangements with some of their biggest fan support coming from Kingston Trio aficionados.

    One of the band's most memorable stories, in a performance career that has led the performers to so many interesting stages and audiences and stories, was when original Kingston Trio member Bob Shane used to show up at Chuck's Steak House in Los Altos with his guitar in hand, and he and County Line Trio would jam into the wee hours of the morning.

    Tod Brendlen says that the band mates never grow weary of playing Kingston Trio songs. "We really look forward to our performances," Brendlen said. "Each show is an opportunity to introduce some of the new songs we've been rehearsing and also revisit the Kingston Trio's many famous hits — while injecting a generous helping of tongue-in-cheek humor, which we think keeps the audience clamoring for more! It's a fun trip down memory lane." "We always believe in the entertainment value of our shows," Brendlen continued, "which includes humor, ballads, sing-a-longs and songs with a 'real zest!' The object is to have fun and make sure the audience has fun too!" -- excerpts from article by Jean Bartlett
