and who are the Merles????

Kip performs and records with his band the Merles. Their particular brand of truck-stop rock will appeal to you folks who don't generally like country music but still need a little twang with their rock and roll. We play cool instruments like old Fenderš Telecasters, Gibsonš J200s, and we JUST SAY NO! to electronic keyboards.

The Merles have shared bills with some of the best non-mainstream acts including

Dwight Yoakam
Junior Brown
„ Heather Miles
Robin Lane (get her new album "Catbird Seat")
Jimmie Dale Gilmore
