Melissa Murphy- Dynamic Dou Part 1   Open Bar Band's Melissa Murphy is a force to be reckoned with. She enjoys singing a wide range of music from artists like ACDC, Guns N Rose's, Joan Jett, Pearl Jam,The Cranberries, No Doubt, Blink 182, Chris Stapleton, Gretchen Wilson, Little Big Town, Etta James, Bruno Mars and Lizzo... Just to name a few.
With her Dynamic vocal range, Harmonica skills
 and high energy she is sure to ROCK your socks off (insert punchline drum sound now) lol
All joking aside she has been singing since she can remember.  When she was young her family would get together and do Karaoke nights. She says "When I was about 5 years old, I remember taking the microphone all the way in the other room so no one could look at me, while I sang Part Of Your World from the little mermaid". She says "I always knew I wanted to sing I just had terrible stage fright". 
Fastforward... several years later. After many nights of going out and doing karaoke she finally got the courage to tryout as a lead singer for a local cover band. She was offered the position minutes after leaving the tryout. She sang with them successfully for two years. 
Wanting different things..the band pointed her in the direction of Open Bar Band and it was a match made in heaven.  She says "This band is like my family, I love what I do and I'm glad I get to share it with them, their wives, and all of our fans".

Becky Luft - Dynamic Dou Part 2    Becky started singing in the church choir when she was 7 years old. She sang in the school chorus and went to NYSSMA but was shy when it came to solos. It wasn’t until 2007 that she put herself out there and put an ad on Hudson Valley Musicians as a vocalist looking for a band. She was hired immediately and has been in bands ever since. Her vocal style ranges from Gretchen Wilson, Joan Jett and Janis Joplin.  Becky is a very commited musician traveling from Coxsackie, NY to perform at OBB shows. Becky and Melissa have formed a very powerful tandem up front. Make sure you "Order up another song" from these two at our shows.
GORDIE BARRETT - “Shot for Shot” – Gordie gets it done. During the day this mild mannered guy drives the BIG RIGS, but at night he transforms into the high flying, electrifying, lead guitarist for “Open Bar Band”. This crazed lunatic will have you jumping up and down with his guitar solos. Watch out, you never know when this guy may be on the table behind you. Gordy uses a Mesa-boogie Amp, one of his guitars is a Godin. At the age of 17 he picked up his first guitar inspired by the guitarist from Tesla. Tesla is also his favorite band. (Well, besides OBB) Gordie resides in Gloversville, NY

BYRON PEREGRIM - The Founding Father  Pounding out the backbone beat for “OpenBar Band” night after night. Byron’s got the best meat in town so it’s said. But that’s because I own Byron’s Village Market in Schuylerville and the Cambridge Village Market.
 I’m ready to get you dancing to the beat and keep you dancing all night long. Since an early age I’ve always listened to a wide range of music, from country to classical to bluegrass to reggae, to almost anything but love to listen to good old Rock n Roll. All time favorite group is AC/DC with “Shook me all night long” being my favorite song as you can tell when seeing OBB. I’m a self-taught drummer starting my music career in the summer of “99”. Having never picked up a pair of drumsticks until then. I helped start my first band, playing drums for three years then took an 8-month layoff. Missing the excitement and adrenalin rush of playing out in front of people I decided the time was right to start my own band. Along with Steve Peltier we started what is known as OBB.
If you love a great time, “OpenBar” is the band to see. Book them today!!!
