The five young gentleman comprising the San Marcos, Texas-based Railhouse Band may be a fistful of generations removed from Bob Wills and the other original purveyors of Western swing (and even a couple from such latter-day champions as Asleep at the Wheel), but if it’s the real no-foolin’ deal you’re looking for, rest assured they bring it in spades. They proved this week after week over the course of their recently completed residency at the storied Cheatham Street Warehouse (which they capped with the recording of a yet-to-be-released live album), and based on the evidence of their debut EP, Coming Out Swingin’, they’re every bit as captivating and entertaining in the studio as they are onstage. To celebrate the EP’s release, the band — singer/guitarist Candler Wilkinson IV, pedal steel player Curtis Clogston, fiddle player Elijah Stone, stand-up bassist Nick Lochman, and drummer Dave Sims Jr. — swung by Superfly’s Lone Star Music Emporium for a rousing in-store performance on Feb. 10, 2017. Here’s a couple of highlights from their set: a cover of the 1910 William Jerome/Jean Schwartz-penned standard “Chinatown” (above), and their own “Railhouse Stomp.” (Both songs are featured on the five-track EP.)
