We play old school country and Americana with some originals thrown in in the DC area. We recently developed a set list and are looking to gig, particularly in 2022.

Check my videos - the most recent is us playing Heartaches By The Number at JV's in VA (the sound we're currently playing), another being of gig I played in Paris, and the last a professional recording of an original. Additionally, the audio files are tracks of more Americana type music that I have on Spotify with some of my former bandmates.

Members Of Band

I have a *pedal steel guitarist*, lead guitarist, bassist, drummer, and myself on rhythm guitar and voice. I'm particularly looking for a female vocalist to do duets/harmonies with, but would happily jam with any other musicians to diversify the roster of people who would be available in case folks can't make a gig for one reason or another! Feel free to reach out!
