What to Expect
We play mostly cover songs of newer country and Texas country with a few originals thrown in. Our favorite artists are The Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, Billy Currington, Eli Young Band, Pat Green. For us, music is family activity. Chris and Sean are father and fon, Debbie and Kristin are mother and daughter, and Derek and Kristin are husband and wife. Being so close with each other really allows us to tighten the group up and perform songs that most cover bands won't even attempt. We love playing for people and take our job extremely serious. You won't find any of our band members intoxicated at shows and we always dress for the occasion.
Our members have played in all sorts of venues from the Meyerson in Fort Worth to Gilley's in Dallas to little hole in the wall bar and grills in Corsicana and weddings receptions at dance halls in Ennis. We can use a venue's PA system and just bring our backline or bring our own PA system depending on the needs of the client. If you have any special requests for wedding receptions, we can learn them as long as we have proper notice. Need an MC for wedding events throughout the night? We can cover that too! Just let us know when you want certain events to take place and we'll keep the night on track.
We're a group of friends that love performing and couldn't think of a better group of people to play with besides each other. We're all from the Ennis/Corsicana area. Music runs in our blood. Our band members have performed in bands all across Texas and the country and have decided that we wanted to try to keep it a little closer to home.
Additional Booking Notes
We have no special requirements for playing other than electricity to plug into (safe, code compliant electricity.) We have our own backline and PA system if it is needed. We do, however, require a 5 pound bag of only red M&M's in the green room.....ok so I'm only kidding about that. We are a very easy going group of individuals that play because we enjoy it.
