    (2007- )
    Born in Bellflower, California
    W.R. Thornton, drums and vocals
    J.D. Andrew, bass, guitar and vocals
    Michael Wayne Butler, guitar and lap steel
    Recorded the albums 'The Boxmasters' (2008), 'Christmas Cheer' (2008) and 'Modbilly' (2009)
    They are yet another celebrity band.
    Allmusic commented, 'Thornton can't drum to save his life and he can't sing.'
    During a band appearance on the CBC Radio program Q (April 9, 2009), Thornton got ticked at host Jian Ghomeshi for mentioning his career as an actor during the intro and said Canadians were like 'mashed potatoes without the gravy.'
    Opening for Willie Nelson in Toronto the next night, they were booed and heckled with audience members shouting 'Here comes the gravy!'
    The band then pulled out of the rest of the Canadian leg of the tour, with Thornton blaming the cancellation on a band member and much of the crew coming down with the flu.
    The two band members who aren't Thornton appear to be sane.
    The Montreal Gazette called their original material 'at turns dark and funny, with world-class hooks.'
    Thornton said, 'I appreciate it [acting] because I'm able to make a good living for my family, but other than that it seems like a job to me. Music is what I love.'
