"Your Country Radio Cover Band "

HISTORY
 

In 2017, there was very little country music along the lakeshore of West Michigan. Of the few country music bands that were performing, they played old country music standards - or a mix of country and classic rock. Country radio had changed over the past 10-15 years, but area country music acts had not.  With this in mind, four musicians set out to put a band together featuring the music of today’s country radio stars. Only 1 member had ever played country music on-stage before, but as seasoned musicians, they put-in the time required to learn the current country sound.  They didn’t just want to do “versions” of well know songs – they were committed to staying true to the recording artist’s original sound.  Country Current was born.  Having added a 5th band member in 2019, they are now packing venues throughout West Michigan as one of the best “new country” cover bands available this side of Nashville’s legendary honky tonks. 

THE BAND
 
Kevin Allen

Keyboard, Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Kevin moved from Bass Guitar to Keys in order to expand and improve the band's overall sound. He's been in the music business for quite some time now. He's the kind of guy you don't notice until he's not there. Then you miss him a little. OK - more than just a little.

Bob Butcher

Bass Guitar, Vocals

Bob joined the band after a long run playing bass and singing with several west Michigan classic rock bands.  Now he’s rediscovering his dairy farm country roots through exploring a new genre of music. He's since added cowboy boots and a Stetson, but hasn't yet arrived to a gig on horseback.

Joe Edick

Vocals, Harmonica, Percussion

Despite his love for music, Joe didn't actually perform in a band until the bug bit him at the tender age of 41.  As more grey hairs surfaced, he realized it was time to leave the 80s music behind and "go country" to hide some of that grey under a cowboy hat!

Tom Udell

Lead Guitar, Vocals

Tom started playing professionally at age19, an has covered just about every genre of music. Highlights include opening for Mitch Ryder and Kansas. After taking time off to raise a family,Tom started a Jazz Fusion band with friends called Smoke'n Inside, featuring jazz standards and several originals. Now, as a member of Country Current, he is on a mission to make Hawaiian shirts look country!

Dave Brown

Drummer

He first picked up the sticks in grade school, igniting a passion which evolved into a christian band in high school. After setting music aside to raise a family, Dave got his groove back by playing with several classic rock bands.  Looking for a fresh start and new challenges, he's now on the country band-wagon.
