13 track LP "Backdoor" released September 2006



Friends of Yoder's sound has been described as "good time get down music". The material goes from foot stomping hoedowns to funk to rock. Great singing, great playing, and having fun on stage equal the groups success.

FOY regularly plays medium and large clubs in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Iowa. Venues include, the Cabooze (Minneapolis), Red Carpet (St. Cloud), The Aquarium (Fargo) Tap Room (Duluth) to name a few.

The band was voted best band in central MN in both 2005 and 2006 by the St. Cloud Times. Their credits also include festivals like: Jammin' Country Fest, Moondance Jam, Upper Mississippi Shakedown and many others.

Singer/songwriter, Tim Haussner, is also employed by World Wide Audio where he regularly sings jingles and station identifications for television and radio nationwide.

After their second tour to Alaska they have proved in it for the long haul. The 2006 tour included: ravenous audiences, two blown transmissions, a broken ankle, a one hundred mile ferry ride, a traded show for a fly in king salmon fishing trip, a forced five mile hike in the thick of grizzly bear country after dark, two hundred miles of hitchhiking, and one hell of a good time.

The band does both organic sounding acoustic sets and ass kickin’ electric sets. Many nights you will hear both versions of the group. You won’t find a more positive, versatile bunch of musicians in one band.

*What's with the name?
The true story starts with a three legged dog, a hooker, and a broken down pickup in a corn field in Iowa, and the story ends with fire trucks, firearms, and attorneys. Yes, Yoder is a friend indeed.*
