" A Unique BREW of Guitar Driven Country and Rock-n-Roll.......TEXAS STYLE"
Rob Keller, and Slim Varhola are back together!!! Along with drummer Dave Parshall, and newest additions, Larry Antinozzi, from Dallas, Texas,and John Rickard from Phoenix, AZ.. these long time musical buddies from the "sticks" outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have developed a new fresh sound, with lots of new tunes, and new arrangements of some old favorites.
Drawing from their "old school Country" , Southern Rock, and Blues roots, Rob, Slim and Larry, each bring their own unique, Vocal and Guitar style, then combine them for Lush vocal harmonies, and burning Guitar Jams !! Add the "Icing on the cake".. John, with his own unique guitar style, and the wail of the Steel Guitar. The Shiners "Guitar Army" create a sound that pulls you in with a heartfelt story, then brings you to your feet with some Foot Stompin, Guitar Jammin, Rock....
Like the moon"shiners" they get their name from, The SHINERS travel the back roads to deliver their product. So, climb aboard, hang on, and enjoy the ride.
THANK YOU ALL !!! For the continued Prayers and well wishes for Rob.
UPDATE: Robs recovery so far, has been nothing short of Miraculous!! The past 8 months have brought him through many ups and downs, But, his faith and determination has carried him through. With one more MAJOR hurdle ahead, This internal surgery will fix up all his belly injuries, but will take months of healing once again. Rob and all of us are looking forward to being back on stage and sharing all these new "True Damn Stories" with all of you.
