The Randy Abel Stable
The Randy Abel Stable is an Americana or Alt-Country band from Beijing. Formed in 2011, The Randy Abel Stable combines honky tonk, country, bluegrass and blues to produce a unique sound that has been described as having "the realism and sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the imagery and lyricism of Hank Williams Sr. and the excitement and raw energy of the Ramones."
Critically acclaimed for their live shows--which sometimes last as long as 3 hours--The Randy Abel Stable displays dexterity and virtuosity on a variety of musical instruments which are native to America and are seldom seen in China--i.e. banjo, mandolin, dobro and harmonica. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of genres, a typical live performance by The Randy Abel Stable takes its audience through a musical journey of honky tonk, country, bluegrass and blues. The band is equally comfortable playing original country ballads, crisp honky tonk dance tunes, Mississippi Delta blues and traditional Rock n' Roll.
