We are all mature gentlemen (no one carries an AARP card yet, but they keep sending the darn things), who have a love for all things musical, and a place a high priority on having fun while we play. While we have a reputation as a Country band, we will provide party music, oldies, and whatever else gets your feet moving.

JB (John Braun) is our lead singer, acoustic guitar guy, and the leader of the pack. Paul Lindsley plays bass and tries to stay out of trouble as a school administrator. Dan Ray, our lead guitar man, is a recently retired truck driver, but there's nothing retiring about his playing. Tom Homer, who uses a computer keyboard by day, and almost any other kind of keyboard on stage. And then there's Jim McDermott, who sits behind the drums when he's not brewing beer, and puts down a truly invigorating set of rhythms.

It's hard to pin down any particular influence, since all of us come from different musical backgrounds. Right now, Country artists like Toby Keith, Daryll Worley, Sawyer Brown, Diamond Rio, Brooks and Dunn , and Vince Gill are among the performers whose works we cover, but there are deep R & B, and Rock roots here, shaded lightly by some of the 60's and 70's acoustic rock songs, with a hint of standards, and a generous helping of good time music.

John, Paul, and Dan had been performing together on a fairly regular basis when the opportunity arose to work as a country band in the spring of 2000. Over the next couple of years, with some personnel changes, the current band emerged as a tight, polished unit that took on some challenging gigs. One of the most daunting tasks was acting as the backup band for contestants in the "Colgate Country Showdown," one of the longest running competitions in the U.S. Learning 60 songs in two weeks, the band provided a flawless backdrop for some very talented aspiring stars. In the last three years, we have opened for Tim McGraw, Daryll Worley, Sawyer Brown, Marshall Tucker, Rascal Flats, Joe Diffy, Phil Vasser, Keith Urban, Diamond Rio, Charlie Daniels and have been invited back to act as back-up for the 2007 Colgate Country Showdown.
