Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

Dedicated group of older musicians with own private rehearsal and performing stage getting together Saturday nights to practice and perform country, southern and classic rock covers for the love of playing and performing music. We are all regular working folk during the week, but come Saturday night we are a Rockin' Top 40 country and classic rock cover band. We practice and perfect our cover tunes, then perform them in front of family and friends in our own basement "Honky Tonk" several times throughout the year and for other private functions. Always looking for other country players (fiddle, banjo, pedal steel, harmonica, mando, etc.) to join "open mic" nights.
