With driving guitar and smooth, vibrant vocals, the listener is brought back in time to the days of songs with real heart and stories to tell. Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly and Buck Owens are brought to life along with present day icons of country music like Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Mary Chapin Carpenter. 309 Express performs a crossroads of Classic Country, Country Rock, Rockabilly, Classic Rock, Folk and Blues. Audiences of all ages sing, dance, clap and toe-tap along to country jukebox favorites presented by 309 Express.”

309 Express played for my father's 80th birthday party. They were fantastic and great to work with. They had a huge play list to pick from so that I was able to have all of my father's favorites played at his party. We highly recommend them. Extremely professional. We will use them for all of our future events! Thanks so much:)
I never used gig salad. Everything worked out great. The band played the songs that I wanted to hear for my birthday. Everyone there loved them and we hope to book them again in the future. Great band and they were great people. Steve
