Benjamin DiFabbio drummer and vocalist, is traveling from Springfield, Tennessee to Texas Sounds. He is best known to the general public for his part in Wild Cherry (http://opnseo.com/1o). Their hit, Play That Funky Music, is one of the most played songs ever!
Shane Mathews, bass, steel, guitar, vocals, is the 2007 Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Musician of the Year and an accomplished singer and musician playing more than 25 different instruments including pedal steel guitar.
Sarah Griffin Humphries, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, vocals, will be helping our band as schedule allows. Her honey-rich vocals and hot fiddle playing add depth and authentic country feel to any performance. And, after all, if you’re going to play in Texas you got to have a fiddle in the band!
