Girls, Guns & Glory frontman Ward Hayden’s voice has been compared to everyone from Dwight Yoakam to Chris Isaak to Lyle Lovett.
But whatever better known names his amplified syllables evoke, there’s no denying that the man and his award-winning Boston band are a formidable force by their own credentials, something that will become clear once they plug in at Sportsmen’s Tavern at 5 p.m. Dec. 6. The quartet — lauded throughout New England and elsewhere for its four critically acclaimed albums, including 2014’s “Good Luck” — deals in a mix of country, razor-sharp rockabilly and tender songwriting, a trio that can feel right at home inside a venue like Sportsmen’s.
Luckily for Hayden and Co., they’re familiar with the terrain, having played the Black Rock tavern last April while touring on their “A Tribute to Hank Williams Live!” covers album. This time, they’ll be serving wider catalog offerings for those interested in all components that earned the band Act of the Year honors at 2013’s Boston Music Awards.
Tickets are $15, and can be purchased online at showclix.com or on-location at Sportsmen’s.
