“KEEPING CLASSIC COUNTRY MUSIC ALIVE ONE HIT AT A TIME”
When I started playing in a band when I was 14 years old, it was Country music with my parents. They were called The Haggerty’s. I cut my teeth playing those country sounds, learning on the job about guitar playing, harmony singing and how a band works. All these years later, I’m so happy to be able to play that music again with Freddy Vette & His Rhinestone Plowboys.
The guy on the stand up bass is my Dad. I talked him into coming out of retirement after hanging up his bass for 25 years. Real Country Music like Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams. The good stuff from the 40s/50s/60s. I’m excited about this new band and I have a great bunch of guys who love it as much as I do.
