What to Expect
Versatility is a huge plus with this exciting country/folk/gospel band.
Both electric and acoustic guitars are used along with some mighty strong vocals, an electric bass, the fiddle, drums, and mandolin to create an exciting array of musical arrangements that are sure to make you smile, clap your hands and want to get up and dance.
And for those who love great vocal harmony, The Obed (pronounced Obee) River Band delivers in another big way. Three and sometimes four-part harmony are at its very best with this band. Pure vocal harmony is on display throughout their long-list of original down-home country-folk, soul and gospel songs this band brings to its growing list of fans everywhere.
Trent McCoy (lead Singer, rhythm guitar, songwriter), Dewayne Wagner (lead guitar, bass, vocals, songwriter), Steve Sisco (bass, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals, songwriter) and Dallas McCalister (drums, percussion, vocals, songwriter).
All four had been entertaining crowds for several years, before coming together as a new band in the Fall of 2018.
Steve and Trent were part of the Gospel quartet, Eleventh Hour.
They spent seven years traveling the country singing Gospel songs for a vast church audience... (most of the songs they sang and recorded were written and produced by Steve Sisco).
Dallas McCalister, one of Detroit’s most versatile drummers during the Motown era, played a variety of music from big band to jazz and everything in between. He now resides in central TN. Dallas adds a touch of the original “Motown” beat and style that compliments this band's southern folk-country sound.
Lead guitarist Dewayne Wagner also performs with his Gospel Trio, “Latter Rain”. He has played lead guitar and has sung with a variety of bands and artists over his musical career that got started when his mama taught him how to play the guitar at a very early age.
His versatility as a singer and lead guitar player has endeared him to a wide range of fans in middle Tennessee and the surrounding region for several years. Born in Kentucky, spent time in Michigan as a young boy, (home of the iconic Motown sound), his family then moved to Tennessee, where he now resides.
Dewayne offers an exciting blend of southern soul, bluegrass, gospel, and some mighty sweet guitar leads and solo’s that helps make The Obed River Band a serious contender for one of the country’s most exciting four-piece folk-country and gospel bands.
These four versatile musicians write, create, produce, publish, record and mix their songs and musical arrangements. Arguably one of the most versatile and talented four-piece country bands to come along in many years, The Obed River Band is a self-contained “Indie” force to be recognized and enjoyed within the country-gospel music industry.
One thing for sure, Trent, Steve, Dallas, and Dewayne are four musicians that enjoy playing and making great music together. The fun they have when playing and singing together is infectious and will make you want to come back to see and hear them time and time again.
What Others Are Saying...
