The Transmitter players are all veterans of the local St. Louis music scene. Band leader and main songwriter Kip Loui co-founded the St. Louis Americana showcase Twangfest as well as playing with the notable St. Louis band The Rockhouse Ramblers who were a St Louis "all star" group that included Dade Farrar and John Horton. Kip currently performs with side project Diesel Island featuring Brian Henneman and other Bottle Rockets personnel. Jon Parsons introduces soul and mood into The Transmitters music on keys. His classic, old-school, funk driven style was showcased with the three piece act The Ambassadors. Their blend of soul and pop that was as catchy as it was unique. Another of his projects, The Getaway Car, was awarded the Riverfront Times Best New Band in 2000. Jon also played with one of St Louis' most highly regarded local bands, Nadine with which he recorded their acclaimed album “Strange Seasons” in early 2002. Mike Young brings rock and blues with his lead guitar work. Mike performed with such bands as Shame Club and The Gentleman Callers who were prominent in the St. Louis scene opening for such acts as Chuck Berry and Dick Dale. Scott Lampley and Dave Stallman compose the rock-solid rhythm of The Transmitters on drums and bass respectively. Scott has toured throughout Missouri playing blues, country, and rock with groups such as Cedar Creek, The Gypsy Eyes Blues Band and Donny and the Feelgoods.
