About the band:

We're veteran musicians out of the local bar scene, and over the past four decades, we've recorded professionally and experienced the ups and downs of life as musicians. In years past, music was an obsession, and we saw it as a possible ticket out of the humdrum workaday lifestyle that most of our friends and acquaintances had resigned themselves to accept. It seemed that our talent and drive as musicians would buy that ticket out of the workforce and into an entrepreneurial lifestyle as free ranging troubadours. As fate would have it, eventually, we all settled down, started families, and moved on to other ways of making a living. As John Lennon says, "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." The dreams of big success in the field of music were shelved, and duty became our purpose and drive as we joined the workforce and put our hearts into becoming providers for our families.

Despite our acceptance of economic reality, an abiding love of music has persisted in all of us, we continued to play in various bands and circumstances together or separately. When we got together to play at a 50th birthday party in 2003, it clicked in us that we could play music for the joy of doing it, and that's why we formed the Loco Yokels. It is our desire to enjoy ourselves while we play and to entertain at events and occasions if the opportunity arises.
