OpenBar’s creation happened in the summer of “2003”. Byron contacted Steve about starting their own band (Steve and Byron previously played together). The wheels were turning, and we were looking. Billy Anderson auditioned for lead vocals and was the perfect fit. After many auditions looking for an exciting and talented guitar player, Mike Edgerly was found. After much deliberation and a long road trip, our name “Open Bar Band” was founded. (Thanks Steve) October 18, 2003 was the date of our first gig held at the Wooden Nickel in Lewis, NY. After many, many great shows May 21st 2004 was Mike’s last show with us, our first change of the band. Gordie Barrett joined OBB as our new guitarist. Gordie brings much energy and excitement and a fresh guitar sound. On September 23rd Rodney “Hot Rod” MacNeil made his debut as the new lead singer for OBB. Hot Rod brings a different style of leadership and showmanship to OBB.
Billy is BACK!! After taking a year off and trying other avenues, Billy has returned as the Lead Singer for OBB!!! More news. OBB has added a second guitarist to the band. Mike Derrico adds another sound that gives OBB a rock/bluesy/funk sound that is unprecedented.
We all believe in what we play, playing rock from the 60’s all the way to the present “Rock & Roll” hits of today. You can dance to our first song , right to our last song. And we’re never afraid of your song suggestions. We’ll try anything once. “Rock On !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
