In the beginning it was Cruize Control, a band from the Midwest (Springfield, MO) rocking all across the country from 2006 to 2014 performing for Parrotheads and then the shift to Phin Addicts there which took us to being an all out Trop Rock band! Our Jimmy Buffet is the best there is and we deliver one of the best tropical themed sounds in the country!
Rick Lamb is the front man for the band and his Buffett sound is spot on! He is a songwriter and singer since he was 18 where he taught himself guitar on the high seas while serving in the US Navy from 1977-1987. Songs of his times at sea and the many ports he has visited are very similar to the life of Jimmy Buffett. With several seasoned veterans in the music business, The core makeup of the band is, George Long Jr. drummer, has 40 plus years of playing with bands throughout the Midwest, opening for headliners like Head East and Charlie Daniels. He is an original member of the band that started out as Cruize Control in 2006. Robert Davis, joined the band in 2013 as lead guitar and vocals! Hardest working lead guitar around and delivers a very Peter Mayer Buffett sound. Also writes and sings his own music! Colleen Keener and Mark McConnell fill the bass spot and rotate as there schedule allows. Mark is an original band member from 2006 and is an accomplished songwriter. Joe Maharg adds the percussion to the mix. Originally a rock drummer he has converted over to the Congas to give us that tropical sound we desired. mark Mireles fills in at the Steel Pan when available. He has played them for 30 plus years and plays for several bands. He brings the ultimate tropical sound and is possibly one of the top Steel Drum players in the nation!
We guarantee one of the best shows around and deliver a high energy show that keeps everyone on the floor dancing and singing along to all their favorite Buffett tunes.
We have put out one CD as Cruize Control. Red Sky At Night, features Rick Lamb and Mark McConnell on vocals with David Smith songwriter and producer of the CD in 2009. A great mix of beach tunes and songs of the sea!
