Friday Night Concert: “Stay All Night,” Hill Country Cosmopolitans

Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on December 2, 2016



The Hill Country Comspolitans are out of Hillsborough, North Carolina. That’s Jerry Renshaw at center on guitar and vocals, Glenn Jones at right on bass and vocals, and Robert Striegler at left on guitar and vocals. From their Facebook page:


Bringing a touch of Texas to Carolina, they decided to call themselves the Hill Country Cosmopolitans…and expanded their repertoire to include a little bit of country and honky tonk and even jazz as well. Danceable, catchy and infectious, Western Swing has a universal charm that people find irresistible…and the Hill Country Cosmopolitans want to share that fun with you at the next barn dance, beer joint, skull orchard, hoedown, shiv-a-ree, wedding, funeral, wake, bar mitzvah, cut ‘n shoot, pig pickin, BBQ, supermarket grand opening, car show, turkey shoot, party or family reunion near you.


Y’all have a great weekend. Gonna rain like hell here, which kinda sucks for the Dickens on the Strand festival.

    Nice performance, but you’ll have to forgive me if I like Bob Wills’ version just a hair better. It’s simply not possible for me to hear this song now without imagining Bob playing along on his fiddle.

    But that’s not to say I don’t hope these boys turn up in another Friday Night Concert or three. I’ve never been all that big a fan of C & W (growing up in Nashville may have something to do with that) but Western Swing is a different story.
