 Bareback Jack
-Bottoms Up-
By Bob Silvestri

Bareback Jack, Western New York’s premier Country & Western band, has released a four song disc titled Bottoms Up. The band, Chris Atkins-guitar/lead vocals, Paul Belardi-bass, Pete Wilson-drums, Kevin Hatton-pedal steel, mandolin and banjo, Denny Dunkowski-lead guitar, recorded the disc at Chameleonwest Studios with Ed Hallborg at the controls. Bareback Jack is not just some line dancing cover band. These guys are some serious musicians which is evident on the disc and especially their live shows. All four songs on Bottoms Up are written Atkins, Belardi and Wilson and include “Money To Burn”, If It Ain’t Broke (I’ll Break It)”, the title track “Bottoms Up” and “Dead Man’s Boots” which the band dedicates to the late Chris LeDoux. All track feature some exquisite playing and pickin’ from both Hatton and Dunkowski. Wilson’s drumming adds a powerful touch as well.
