Hugh Bob prepares to hit the road

Hugh Bob and The Hustle, still riding the success of an eponymous debut disc, kicks off a tour this week. The schedule includes stints with Sturgill Simpson and Nikki Lane.
The first date of the tour for the band – which also includes Quinn Scharber on guitar and vocals; Nicholas Stuart on bass and vocals; Bradley Kruse on keyboards and vocals; and Justin Krol on drums – is at Chicago's House of Blues on May 15 with Simpson.

The band shares the stage with Simpson again in Appleton on May 17. After a break, the group joins Lane for a week in June. In July, there are a string of dates in Wisconsin and Michigan. 

That last leg includes a performance in Hugh Bob Masterson's hometown of Butternut, population 300.

"It’s the kind of place where the silence is deafening and the stars are so bright you can feel nothing but humbled," says Masterson.
