Idaho's outlaws return

Braun brothers to perform at Whiskey's

Express Staff Writer

Every so often one of Idaho’s best-known bands makes it home from Texas, stamping the valley’s nightlife with the fervor of Idaho outlaws.

Reckless Kelly rocks Ketchum along with his brothers.

Both Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars return to play at Ketchum’s Whiskey Jacques’ Wednesday, June 2.

Both bands include Braun brothers, Willie and Cody in Reckless Kelly and Micky and Gary in Micky and the Motorcars.

Before the Idaho boys return, Whiskey Jacques’ will host the seven-piece bluegrass band Purdymouth, Friday and Saturday, May 28 and 29, to celebrate the reopening of the Ketchum saloon after remodeling.

Wednesday’s bands, Reckless Kelly and Micky and the Motorcars, are now based out of Austin, Texas, but the band members’ hearts continue to linger in Idaho. Born and bred in Stanley, the Braun brothers began their careers with their father Muzzie, singing down home country music. The boys have since grown up and are driving forces in the Texas music industry.

Reckless Kelly, led by brothers Willy and Cody Braun, jam country rock-laced performances. The group is quickly gaining national attention after being named by the Austin Chronicle as the "Best Roots Rock Band" three years in a row. In addition, the group performed in London in April, and earned recognition for "The 20 Best Albums You Might Have Missed in 2003" from Country Music Television for "Under the Table and Above the Sun."

Micky and the Motorcars will add more Braun force to the show throughout the evening.

All shows start at 10 p.m. Both bands play in Boise at the Big Easy on June 3, and June 4 they play in Twin Falls at the Western Days event in the City Park.

They will be back in the valley in August to play in Hailey at the Northern Rockies Folk Festival Friday and Saturday, Aug. 6 and 7, and then return to their old stomping grounds for the Braun Brothers Reunion Saturday, Aug. 14, in Challis.
