Frampton Comes Alive with Zach Harmon at The Scrub Pub

By Chelsea Schmid

The Scrub Pub outdid itself Saturday night when Zach Harmon returned for a night of Eagle-esque country music. Boasting three-part harmonies, masterful originals, and Duane Ramelot a rock and roll guitar player with a talk box who's got Frampton on lockdown, Zach Harmon and his band conjured up a tasty treat in the form of ear candy for a small but enthralled audience.

..TR> Just an hour or two up the road, the band calls Abilene its home, and if you didn't catch them while they were here, the music is well worth the drive.

Born in East St. Louis in the 60's. Duane grew up in a spacious countryside community near Dupo, Illinois. He got excited about music hearing local bands tearing it up around his hometown and nearby St. Louis. Playing in local Rock bands from 13 years old. At 21 set out on the road touring from Michigan to Texas and everywhere in between opening for bands like Pantera and Warrant. Met his wife Tracye and started a family. Settled in Abilene, TX. Playing music wasn't paying the bills. So he went to college in 1986 and received an Associates degree in electronics specializing in Microcomputer troubleshooting while playing with Texas 2nd place Battle of the bands winner Frenzy. Took a job repairing Banking equipment all over Texas. " I wanted to see Texas, but didn't realize I would actually see all of it". Reports came in from all over the State of people spotting a man driving down the highway playing guitar. The company number was on the side of the Astro van. "I had my rockman headphone amp and my guitar and got pretty good at driving with my knees, thank goodness the roads in Texas are pretty straight! When the boss asked I would show them this little practice neck with strings on it I made, he would laugh and ignore it". He started his own computer networking/repair company in 1994 after becoming a self taught Microsoft MCSE, Novell CNA and A+ Certified. Over the years he has been performing with top notch EP bands like VIA, The Spiders, RMS, and currently providing lead guitars and vocals for the West Texas crossover favorite Zach Harmon Band. " I've reached the point now to where music I enjoy creating and playing is the only real reward. But if it does touch someone, well that's great. Thats what it should be all about anyway! " Though I wont turn down hard earned funding. In 2009 I plan to spend alot more time and effort on my solo career.
