Bishop Hill to host honky-tonk show

BISHOP HILL —Wayne “The Train” Hancock, will perform a one-night-only show on Monday, Jan. 14 at Bishop Hill Creative Commons, located at 309 N. Bishop Hill St., Bishop Hill.

Since his stunning debut, Thunderstorms and Neon Signs in 1995, Wayne “The Train” Hancock has been the undisputed king of Juke Joint Swing - transforming honky-tonk, western swing, blues, Texas rockabilly and big band. Always an anomaly among his country music peers, Hancock’s uncompromising interpretation of the music he loves is in fact what defines him: steeped in traditional but never “retro;” bare bones but bone shaking; hardcore but with a swing. Hancock is the embodiment of genuine, house rocking, hillbilly boogie.

The show will begin with a potluck dinner at 6 p.m., with music starting at 7 p.m., and is open to guests of all ages. Tickets are available at for $15 in advance or can be purchased at the door for $20. For more information please visit To learn more about Wayne Hancock please visit
