Twang Party

Twang Party


Stripped-down, full-bore California Country, in the vein of Merle, Buck, Gram, Nesmith. Two guitars, bass, with drum machine. Scalable, from listening rooms to festivals and arenas. Well-suited to line dancing. We are Gold Rush Country natives with industry cred. Authentic, experienced, proven.


The son and grandson of Northern California lumberjacks, Steve Byers grew up to the sounds of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Red Simpson on KRAK radio from Sacramento. He began performing at age 12 on an international tour with Sing Out California, and since the late 1970s has earned a living as a stalwart guitar-slinging front man in the honky-tonks of the San Joaquin Valley and Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Andy Arrow began performing professionally as a drummer at age 11. After moving to Nashville, he appeared on TV, in music videos, and performed on and toured behind two dozen blues albums that were released in Europe. His version of the rockabilly classic "Tear It Up" was included on the Taxim compilation album "Nighttime Roundup."

An enrolled member of the Chippewa Indian Tribe and lifelong country music devotee, Dianne McGregor grew up on the White Earth Indian Reservation, and from an early age performed professionally along with her siblings in their parents' show band. As a working musician in Nashville she toured and perfomed in showcases and on demos in support of Music City icons and upstarts.
