Inspired by the country outlaw music that Nashville rejected in the 70s, Joseph Turkot (JT) began putting together a band of likeminded musicians to revive the music in the fall of 2018.
Dave Laganella and Chris Angelino were the first to join The Stardusters, on lead guitar and bass respectively, followed by Jim Curran on drums and finally, Ed Tucker on steel guitar. The band mixes original music and under-appreciated honky tonk classics in an energetic live act. The group hails from Philadelphia, and is currently one of the few groups working to revitalize real country music and bring back the outlaw sound. The band completed its first 5 song demo EP in November 2018, and is working on their next collection of songs, both originals sand classics, for their next release.
