CHANCEY WILLIAMS & THE YOUNGER BROTHERS BAND
JANUARY 11 - 16
Chancey Williams and The Younger Brothers Band began with humble beginnings, out of a love of country music and an ingrained desire to perform and entertain. Started for the only purpose of playing a few songs at their high school talent show, lead singer and acoustic guitarist Chancey Williams and drummer Travis DeWitt knew that this is what they were meant to do after just those few songs. The band started to play for weddings and small fairs and rodeos, and before they knew it, they were opening for their hero Chris LeDoux at the Montana State Fair in front of 8,000 people. That experience gave them a taste of what was to come, and they continued to hone their craft playing at bars all through the Midwestern states, from Montana and South Dakota, to Nevada and Colorado.
The band expanded in 2008, adding the amazing harmonies and smooth picking of Wyatt Springsteen on lead guitar, and also adding a third part to their great harmonies with Brooke Latka on fiddle. The band also added Dugan Hughes on bass guitar in 2009. The combination of all of these musicians makes for a rowdy and raucous stage show that is sure to be remembered. The band also released their 2nd studio album, “Honky Tonk Road” last year. The CD is also available on iTunes and on CDBaby.com. Playing over 170 shows a year for the last two years, the band has created quite a following while sharing the stage with such acts as Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Craig Morgan, Rodney Atkins, Phil Vassar, Chris Cagle, Stoney Larue, and Robert Earl Keen. Be sure to catch one of their shows and you will know why they have become one of the most sought-after bands in the Midwest.
