Hongkou is known for many of Shanghai’s most celebrated things: The Shanghai Shenhua football club, the Jewish Refugees Museum, Lu Xun Park, and Country music just to name a few. The latter, can be attributed to Western Canada’s own Graydon Tulllis, who came to these pastures several years ago.
On October 15th, Graydon and the Pearl would like to invite you to see his band, the Hongkou Tonks, as they indulge in their favorite past time; boot stomping country music with a side of two steppin’. Expect your favorite country rock hits from Johnny Cash to Alan Jackson to Eric Church, played by a band well-versed in the finer points of drinking, carousing and playing kick ass music.
Don’t worry if you have two left feet! There will be dance lessons provided at this honky tonk. For those who want to enhance their experience and impress their date, there will be professional dance lessons given in between sets.
