David Carbrey


Lead Guitar, Banjo, Fiddle.


I'm into an aggressive but tasty, authentic country sound. I hate "modern country", in fact - it's an oxymoron - they haven't made real country for decades in Nashville. I have assembled an ass-kickin' insurgent country band" ..."Butch Cavendish"!

"Butch Cavendish" specializes in clinging tenaciously to the classic roots of country & western music – tastefully distorted guitars, sad and often humorous lyrics branded with cowboy imagery and honky-tonk harmonies.

I play rhythm guitar and sing.
Chris Olson plays the pedal-steel guitar.
Tim Lasyone plays the big, stand-up bass.
Scott Buxton plays the drums.
Jim Fish plays the lead guitars.
