Biography

When 80 Proof hit the Texas Country Music Circuit in 2003, they operated off one standard; Good Music makes Good Fans. This standard holds true today and everyday. The 80 Proof Band is made up of 4 very diverse singer/songwriters who all come from different backgrounds in music. They easily blend the popular styles to come up with one distinct and different sound. It's very easy to get lost in the melodies of such ballads as "Crazy Dreams" and "December Rain", and then to rock out to the sounds of "Throw Away the Key" and "I'm Alright". 80 Proof's shows consist of many original songs, which the band has written and composed, mixed with covers strategically placed to get and keep the attention of the crowd. The showmanship of the 80 Proof Band gets better all the time. By mixing high energy, lots of great original songs, and great cover songs, the band has the opportunity to draw a crowd and leave that crowd wanting more. 80 Proof has been influenced by many artists. Some of those artists include Johnny Cash, SRV, Stoney Larue, Rodney Pyeatt, Waylon Jennings, Victor Wooten, Johnny Hiland, CCR (both 'em), Mike McClure, Willy Braun, Led Zepplin, Cody Canada, Deftones, Mike Eli and Willy Nelson, just to name a few.
