Cody Shaw and the Rhythm Boys
Cody Shaw and the Rhythm Boys are a country music band that currently reside in Wichita Falls, Texas. The five piece band collectively have decades of recording and touring experience, and are actively on tour in the Texas and Oklahoma regions. Cody Shaw and the Rhythm Boys represent the third generation of this group. The Rhythm Boys began in 1941 with Clinton Shaw and the Rhythm Boys, Cody’s grandfather. The band continued with Cody’s father, who formed Ben Shaw and the Rhythm Boys and toured with the group from 1964-1970. Ben now plays lead guitar for his son in the newest representation of the band.
Cody formed his version of the Rhythm Boys in 2004 and immediately began touring. In 2006, the Rhythm Boys released their album “Three Chords & the Truth”, a record that pays tribute to the origins of country music through its sound.
In 2012, after a brief hiatus, the Rhythm Boys hit the road again as Cody began working on a new album. In March of 2013, the band released their newest music to date, the 5-song EP “Lonesome”, which was recorded at their own studio, Flat 41 Music, out of their hometown, Wichita Falls.
“A fusion of western, blues, soul, & country, ‘I’m Lonesome’ is a clear insight into the diversity of the entire EP.” ~ James “Big Jim” Russell, 94.9 The Outlaw
“If James Dean had a CD or MP3 player in his Porsche back in the day, this EP would surely be in the rotation!” ~ Mike Cheney, Southern Music Scene
Cody Shaw and the Rhythm Boys continue to tour the Texas and Oklahoma regions, always looking to expand their boundaries and bring their style of country music to the crowds one show at a time.
