Our music is "designed for dancing". We play well known classic and contemporary country, as well as complementary blues and classic rock songs, each guaranteed to create a reaction from the crowd. Set lists are mixed so that we move from genre to genre while keeping the primary focus on country.

Biography

The four of us come from very different musical backgrounds:

Mark is a drummer, but learned guitar because we thought a guy with voice as good as his should be out front.

Wayne has been playing guitar/bass professionally in country and rock bands since the first moon landing and has the chops to prove it.

Larry just may be the funkiest drummer out there playing country, rock and blues given that his favorite bands are the Tower of Power and the Spinners.

And Steve had mostly been playing fingerstyle acoustic guitar until the guys asked him to play bass with the band, perhaps not realizing that it had been thirty years since he last played bass with a band!

So we're pretty decent musicians, but the thing that makes us stand out that our songs are well researched through our collective years of experience performing live, as well as Mark's years as a karaoke DJ and Steve's career as a radio DJ and program director.
We play the songs that people want to hear ... country, classic rock and blues ... and we play them well.
