Polish those dancin' boots and grab your best dancin' partner; you're not going to want to miss THIS Nebraska band! Since their inception in 1999, West Wind has become one of the State's most highly sought after country dance bands. Covering an eclectic mix of traditional country, Texas Red Dirt country, and some of today's current Top 40 favorites, these musicians pack the dance floor every night.Over the years, though the faces of the band have changed here and there, the mission of the group has stayed true. Founder, bassist, vocalist and front man, John Longoria says, "We just play ‘real' country music." The boys of West Wind make a commitment to delivering the highest quality of musicianship possible and to maintain the integrity of authentic country music as it has been known. John shares the stage with Larry "Chappy" Bressington who offers absolutely flawless steel guitar solos and fills, and lead guitar assistance to primary guitarist, Keith Andersen. Chance Hobelman is responsible for acoustic guitar work, and Tab Eastberg offers percussion. And although most of these fellas are strong lead singers, the extensive vocal abilities in this band allow for tight harmonies, as well. West Wind fans can also look forward to the addition of BANJO to the group's instrumental repertoire.As they trek the I-80 circuit, dance floors across Nebraska are abuzz with the sounds of West Wind. From the western Sandhills to the most popular country dance clubs eastbound to the Iowa line, this band can often be found entertaining dancers of JD's in Kearney, The Single Barrel in Lincoln and Bushwackers Saloon in Ralston. And although they're a proven headliner, West Wind has been the opening act for other big name artists like Stoney Larue, Jason Bolin, Aaron Watson, Bart Crow, Casey Donahew, 38-Special, Brooks & Dunn, and Darryl Singletary.To experience a small taste of the country sounds of West Wind, check out a few of their tunes on Reverb Nation.
