B i o g r a p h y

Being a lifetime County-Roots-Rockabilly fan and musician I began playing publicly in 2002.  The band has had several incarnations of great musicians over the years, but the group we have now is by far the tightest.  We can do anything from strict traditional country two steppers and waltzes, to blues and rock and roll.  


I currently have three albums out.  One is a studio album with a mix of originals and covers featuring some really great names in music.  Redd Volkaert and Earl Poole Ball set in on a few songs as well as steel guitar genius James Shelton.  The latest record was done this year at Triple Crown in San Marcos Texas by Ace Pepper.

We have a 2016 release called Shop Sessions.  You can check that out back on the home page.   



We have two hall of famers in the band currently.  Billy Dee Donahue on bass, formerly the house band leader of Gilley's Club.  He was inducted into the Western Swing Hall of Fame in 2014.   Big John Mills  Plays lead guitar in the band and has many accolades including Texas Music Artist Of the Year.  Both have played in many legendary bands.  Youi can visit Big John Mill's page at www.bigjohnmills.com
