Old as Dirt
A little about the band
OAD is a group of extremely talented friends with a passion for music.
Taking a different approach to the material they only play music they love to play and it shows every time they hit the stage.
Laying down a heavy foundation are seasoned drummer Dwight Merritt and bassist Tim Harkrider, both of these guys have been around and know how to drive a band no matter the style from a heavy straightforward rock groove to complex syncopated rhythms they give the band room to move.
Guitarist and back up vocalist Tony Helton is a 25 year veteran player, with influences such as Steve Lukather, Eddie Van Halen he is a wizard on the fret board with too back it up.
Scott Broome joins the line up on guitars, keys, lead and back up vocals. Scott who is also a talented songwriter has toured extensively in his career as a lead guitarist and vocalist adding keys to his list of talents a few years ago he never fails to give a stunning performance at every opportunity.
Soul Man Brian Pruett lends his awesome taste and soul to the band as guitarist and vocalist. Rumor has it Brian was born with a guitar in his hand and if you hear him play you will believe it is true, his ability to blend with the other players in the band gives OAD a "wall of sound"
Last but far from the least front man,guitarist, lead vocalist Tommy Pitts. Tommy handles the majority of the vocals for OAD and the passion this man has in his voice is incredible he can take you from one extreme to the other making you cry one minute and dance the next with a vocal quality rarely heard.
