Clay McClinton at the Blue Max in Midland ,Texas

Basin Bands got to hang out with the Clay McClinton Band at the Blue Max in Midland TX.  What a cool guy and a great show!  This is his band performing 'Mexico" from his latest album. Here is a full version of the song above.. the sound makes up for the dark video.. check it out!

claymcclintonClay gave Basin Bands a copy of his newest album. "Livin out Loud" and we had a chance to give it a listen while updating this blog. Here is our official review:  Buy it!  Its Epic Western.  Its Swing Blues, Its Country, Rock and Americana that evokes sounds of JJ Cale, Bob Dylan and Texas Twang.  These cleverly written tunes are a soundtrack of a traveling band that isnt trying to hard to impress, just to play beautifuy crafted music.  Livin Out Loud is Clay McClinton in his own right.  A Texas troubador well deserving of the legacy of his father, Delbert McClinton.  Get yourself a copy from his website:
