3 Chord Rodeo was awesome!!!! The members of the band were SO great to work with. Our group had such a good time at the party, we are so happy we picked them. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an excellent band and a good time!
The band was created in 2012 by long-time Austin friends and musicians Bobby Dabbs (lead guitar) and Greg Scarborough (bass guitar and vocals). California native Lauren Ellis (steel, lead guitar and vocals) joined the band shortly after moving to Austin from Nashville, where she toured with Rita Coolidge, Rosie Flores, Rick Trevino and former Monkee Peter Tork. Since then, we have added Nashville sideman and Austin resident, Brent Wilson (rhythm guitar). Brent's resume includes appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and working with such country music legends as Johnny Bush, Charlie Louvin and Austin's Wagoneers. Rounding out the band is Austin, Texas native Bill Mansell on drums. Bill has performed with Jubal Clark (Willie's Picnic '79), Bill Carter, The Desires, The Lift, Lou Ann Barton, the Argyles, and Jake Penrod. You never know who may drop in; Earl Poole Ball (piano) and Jon Kemppainen (fiddle) are also regular guest performers.
