90 PROOF is the area’s hottest country rock dance band.
90 PROOF came together when some of the region’s hardest working musicians decided to leave their longtime musical genres of folk, southern rock and heavy metal, to put together something altogether new and different. Today’s country music provided that perfect opportunity – a recognizable musical format that could quickly build a fan base, a vast treasure of music that could keep those fans dancing, singing and smiling all night long, and a musical style which would allow each musician to bring and expand the strengths of their own rich history in an exciting new way.
It certainly was the right thing to do.
From the very beginning, audiences respond to the band and its music - filling area venues, traveling for long distances, staying until the very last note of the night. And at every performance they added new fans to the 90 PROOF family.
90 PROOF draws you to the dance floor with their high-energy brand of country rock, powered by the very best of dance rock music. It features Ray Minew’s soulful styling of today’s hottest country songs by Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, and Blake Shelton, as well as crowd-pleasing classics by Johnny Cash and Alan Jackson. Minew’s vocals are backed by the driving rock guitar leads of Rick Naccarato, the metal inspired progressive licks of Pete Cotich on bass and the solid foundation and artful accents of Steve Fuller on drums.
90 PROOF’s music keeps the dance floor filled all night long.
And if you stay to the end you might hear some southern boy licks howling around your kitchen door.
