Event Navigation

The Fox is proud to welcome Billy Bob Thorton and the Boxmasters as one of the first dates of their new Speck Tour!

Teddy Andreadis, J.D. Andrew and Billy Bob “Bud” Thornton make up The Boxmasters, an American roots-rock band of seasoned musicians whose sound is rich in rhythm and story.

Formed in 2007, the band released the self-titled debut record “The Boxmasters” to critical acclaim. Comprised of original songs – including the Americana radio hit “The Poor House” – and eclectic covers of tunes by The Beatles, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mott The Hoople and Mel Tillis.

There are a lot of actors who want to be musicians, but when it comes to Billy Bob Thornton and The Boxmasters, it was more than that. Before Thornton became a successful Oscar nominated writer and actor, his first love was always music. He worked a great deal in the music industry before his career in Hollywood ever kicked off.

Thornton was playing in cover bands while also working as a roadie for legendary artists like Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Johnny Paycheck and the Statler Brothers. He released his own album back in 1974. Even after his Hollywood career hit amazing heights, after he won an Oscar for Best Screenplay for “Sling Blade,” he never turned his back on his music career.
