Stampede is a high energy, 'Guitar Driven' band from Minneapolis with a heavy southern rock influence (especially Lynyrd Skynyrd) featuring many cover hits from the 70's--2000's as well as some of our own original titles. We're probably best known for replicating the covers with excellent accuracy.


Stampede originated in the 70's when two brothers, Bob and Steve Scherer, both guitar players and vocalists, got together with long time friend keyboardist Billy Burns and other local musicians and formed a southern/classic rock band. Over 30 years the band has had several musicians come and go, but Bob, Steve, and Billy have remained together performing locally in the Minneapolis area at larger venues like the Medina Entertainment Center, local clubs, and outdoor festivals. Mike Johnson, another long time friend and highly talented lead guitar player, joined the band in the 90's. In 2002, Duane Toenyan, a talented bass player and drummer, joined the band as the bass player. In 2004, a very talented, versatile Todd Wicklander joined as the drummer. Since then, all members have stayed together and really have fine tuned the southern rock/classic rock cover music including hits from: Molly Hatchet, The Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker, The Outlaws, Charlie Daniels, and most importantly, Lynyrd Skynyrd--in fact our band is formed with the instrumentation/vocals for much of Lynyrd Skynyrd's music (we can do one hell of a great job on Freebird!). All the members in our band work daytime jobs and play with Stampede as a secondary income/very fun hobby. We probably play less shows than other bands of our caliber, but we practice a lot, put on a quality performance, and have a good local fan base. If you love southern and classic rock, you'll love Stampede!


Nothing recorded as of yet but we do have several original songs and are always working on more creations.
