For some real-deal honky-tonk music without a trace of country-pop sheen, look to Colorado-based Halden Wofford and the Hi-Beams. These seasoned pros have mastered an infectious mix of tear-in-your-beer blues and a giddy, danceable, Western swing. Among the best retro-country bands around, the group has played to national audiences on "A Prairie Home Companion," but it's best seen in the comfy confines of its natural habitat: a barroom.
