Beginning in 1995, it took almost thirty years and major careers in between before five Tulsa area musicians began rehearsing what has become one of the most successful acts in Northeast Oklahoma!
They all had bands in high school and college but then came marriage, families and real jobs, which consumed our lives for the next twenty-five years. But in 1995, drummer Johnny Winters invited a few guys over for a “Jam”. It was not your typical jam because these guys had not played in an organized manner for years! Tuesday’s seemed to be pretty good for everyone so within a few Tuesday’s another jam happened.
Steve Lee cleared out some space in the workshop at American Heat & Air so the group, finally we were an authentic “garage band”: The Parkhurst brothers, Steve Lee, John Dougherty and Jim Stunkard.
John Dougherty suggested the band name.
After a good laugh and a little discussion, the band came to be known as “THE FABULOUS MID LIFE CRISIS BAND”
Marc Boyce was standing in the wings to take over the drumming duties. Marc with a beautiful voice was the solid beat of the band for the next seven years.
Jim Stunkard had recently opened Paint’n Place Studio and had heard about a guy who was the lead singer with “Boss Tweed”, a major rock band from Oklahoma State University in the ‘60’s. Even though the band had four pretty good singers already, Stunkard, who can’t sing a lick, thought the group needed one more. Carl was invited to the garage and it became pretty clear pretty quick that the five guys were now six!
In 2005, Dr. Charley Stewart took over the arduous job of drummer while Marc battled some medical difficulties.
Founding member Steve Lee, an original driving force behind the band retired in 2007 and was ably replaced by renowned guitar gunslinger Hayden Burlingame.
Shortly we added Scott McGhee who stepped in to replace Marc’s voice.
The band has been rocking for over 17 years and shows no sign of stopping, it is always a good time when TFMLCB counts it off 1,2,3&4 , it's party time!
