But first, info on the great bands I get to play with!....

I'm extremely fortunate to be playing with some great bands (and even greater friends). Please click on the band names to open a new window for their respective websites!

Mixtape Junkies
ALL your favorite 80's music the other bands are not playing for you  :)
For our songlist and lots more info

Green Soul Foo
The best of Green Day, Collective Soul, and Foo Fighters.  Need any more info?   :D

Prairie Surfers - Classic rock and Americana.
Check out my YouTube channel for some great clips from the Surfers as well.  
LIKE Prairie Surfers on Facebook!

Bobb Vylan - Classic rock to Contemporary Alternative. 
And as far as the classic rock is concerned, we're doing songs people love that no other bands in the area are playing.

OMT (One More Time) 

Classic rock, Contemporary Country, Alternative, and much more.

Great songs you love and great songs you may not know but WILL love. Tight vocal harmonies and a ton of fun!  (And yes, we did weigh the fun to be sure).

Turbo Shot

This is the band that seriously doesn't take itself seriously.   :D   

It's all about the great 'party rock 'n' roll' that you hear comin' out of your drunk neighbor's old and dying humungous speakers around midnight on a Saturday night - where everyone at his house is having the time of their lives, but you're wussing out cuz you gotta work on Monday. Wahhh... Every thing from the classic 70's & 80's favorites to contemporary hits. I'll let one of the band's posters speak for itself.... 


The Billy Martin Band

I get the chance to help out with this great band by coming in on some of their shows.   Classic to contemporary rock and pop, with great musicians, great vocals, and a bunch of really funny guys!


As busy as I am with shows, guitar lessons, band rehearsals, etc, I'm sure I'll miss posting something at some point. If you're wanting to double-check if I'm playing any weekend that is (accidentally) not listed below, please feel free to email me to find out if I will be playing a show with one of these great bands!
