Give us a call and let us make your party "The Event" of the year!
The Country Linemen just played for our company party this past Saturday. The employee's here are a little hard to please and hard to get to dance, but the Country Linemen did an excellent job. I heard tons of compliments on how great they were and they loved the song selections. They even let one of the employees sing with them. I would definitely recommend The Country Linemen to anyone who is looking for a good time and great music.
Response from County Linemen:
The County Linemen aim to please! When our crowd is having fun, we are having fun! We really enjoy as much audience participation as possible and are very accomodating if someone in the audience wants to join us on-stage for their 15 minutes of fame. Give us a call and tell us how we can make your event fun and special for you!
These guys looked like they were having a blast on stage! And because they had fun with the music and the crowd, we had fun. We were impressed with the variety of songs they were able to play from Hank Williams to Merle Haggard to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Elvis to Beach Boys to Beatles and everything in between. They closed out the night with Wipe Out and 2 other drummers joined the band's drummer on stage for the drum solos. Talk about exciting to watch!

What to Expect
Our audience members can expect LOTS OF MUSIC during a County Linemen performance. This music is performed by the band on stage, but we also encourage the audience to participate by joining us on-stage, dancing, clapping, and singing along during our group sing-a-longs of Beach Boys songs and more! Request the song Wipe Out and see the drummer jump into action along with special assistance from our steel player who also plays drums. You'll leave our performance feeling happy and looking at life in a more positive way.
Brian Carnahan, our leader, handles lead vocals, lead guitar, assists on bass guitar and steel guitar, and loves incorporating the audience in group sign-a-longs to Beach Boys song Barbara Ann. Curtis Kloft, the utility player of the group, plays steel guitar, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, drums and assists on back-up vocals. Rick Berry is our bass man but also performs smoking lead guitar riffs and fabulous lead vocals on older rock songs and southern rock. Matt Carnahan does the lead guitar and lead vocal work on old standards by Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, and more. Tom Rouse keeps the beat for the band on the drums and loves to rock the house with his version of Wipe Out.
We also offer FREE line dance lessons upon request to get more audience participation.
