ABOUT

6 pc. Classic Country band seeking a solid fiddle player and steel guitarist Preferably that can sing backup. We are in our 50’s and this is a new startup classic country band. We are looking to do 60’s 70's 80's 90's and early 2000’s with maybe some older stuff along with some classic rock, southern rock, outlaw and red dirt. We are not looking to make the big times, just looking for some cool people without attitudes to have a good time, rehearse a couple times a month and gig once or twice a mouth or more if everyone wants to. I live in Garland which is where we rehearse with PA. We are not doing this for money but for the love of music, however, country gigs do pay well so that's a bonus. The band consists of lead guitarist, rhythm guitarist, bass guitarist and drums with everyone in the band being able to sing lead. We finally have the core and ready to ad a fiddle and steel guitar to complete our 6 pc. band. We have all been playing many many years and not looking for beginners. We have a great time hanging out and joking around and cutting up and very laid back but serious also. If interested call or text John 214-901-2333.
