Beyond the Music: The 2 Gallon Hatz Story

by razzberrymagic

This favourite country group, adored by all, isn't all that you might think. The talented members of the 2 Gallon Hatz are not only the greatest country band in Neopia. They have one of the most miraculous stories ever, but also one of the most emotional.

It all started with a dream. The dream belonged to three country music-crazed teenagers. Billy Ray Roo, Chuffer Tex, and one member who later found out that being a country musician wasn't his passion. He was the twin brother of Billy Ray, and his name was Sheppard T. Roo. They decided to form the band, and that became one of the best decisions they had ever made. They decided to get a manager. They hired one that wasn't charging much, and his name was Shady Jay. He made them practise a lot, and very hard. This is what he told us here at Beyond the Music: "Agga-akca-akca-goga-flubba-gurgle-gurgle-muckly-yuck!" Which means, "Billy Ray, and Chuffer Tex were, and still are, really good at coming to practise, and being there on time. But Sheppard is a different story. He just stopped trying lost all commitment. He was always late, and he never even tried. Eventually he just stopped coming to practise, and eventually quit. He ended up becoming a door-to-door hair gel salesman."

So they decided that instead of giving up the dream, that they would hold auditions for a new drummer. There were two that they were having a dilemma about. The two best: Bobby Jo Buxton and Jerry X. Junior. They had a hard decision to make. They were leaning towards Booby JO, but their manger looked at it a different way. According to Billy Ray, "Uggas-mikin-guckle-hubbbb-yuuda-goog!", which means: "He thought that Jerry X was a better choice, because of the way he looked. He said that it would attract more female fans but his drumming was weak and unclean. He just wasn't what Chuffer and I were looking for." So they ended up picking Bobby JO. "He was really cooperative, and he played what we wanted him too. That was probably the best decision I've ever made!" or "Uggaa-chaka-uggaugga-ugga-gup!" said Chuffer Tex.

Since all of the changes had been done, everything was catching up to speed. At one of their concerts, Shady Jay made a poll to see how many female fans they had at each concert. At one of there concerts (at that time they weren't very popular, and it was really more of a ho-down!) there were 56 people, and only 13 of them were females! So Shady Jay decided that they needed an adjustment to the band. The needed a woman! He thought it would be a good idea if they got an other female vocalist, so they had a meeting and, according to Bobby JO, this is what Shady Jay told them: "Reggw-mukga-ogre-poo!" translation: "He thought we should get a female vocalist. WE were all against it at first. Especially Chuffer Tex. He didn't want to share the spotlight with anyone else! But he told us about this on country singer he had heard once. Peggy Sue Percival. Shady Jay was just so convinced that it was the key to success, and that if we decided to do it then, we would be the most well known band in Neopia. We decided that we would give it a go. Once we did, we had her sing to our newest song: "There Ain't No More Omelette Left, Oh I Got The Blues!" So we had her sing along with our album, and actually, she was pretty, good!"

They all ended up agreeing, (even Chuffer Tex!) that we would maybe do a bit better. Chuffer Tex said, "Yggna-fishi-gagga-juju-acka-!" Translation: "And you know what? For the first time in his life, Shady Jay was right! Out of all of the decisions we've made were probably the two best decisions we've made! So far, I don't regret any decisions that we've made!" Sharp guy!

This is when the Neopoints started rolling in. All four of them combined, made the ultimate country band! Everything started so quickly, and apparently Chuffer Tex hasn't changed his mind. He still doesn't regret a thing!

Today, Billy Ray Roo has settled down and has a bouncing little baby girl of his own. Chuffer Tex has gotten engaged and will soon be happily married. Word has it that Bobby JO and Peggy Sue have been seen together for a few months now! They all say that they are having a lot of fun in the band, and also want to thank all of there fans for being so supportive.
