Drums, Cajon, Vocals

Seeing Ringo on television hooked Lance. He moved to Austin, Texas and played with everyone he could, from Mel Brown (Bobby Blue Bland), Luther Tucker (Muddy Waters), and Ponty Bone, to the Blue Monday Jam house band at the legendary Antones with Lewis and the Legends. Later, Lance backed Johnny Johnson (Chuck Berry) with the Belairs and played with Ronnie Lane (Faces) on his last tour. Lance has toured most of the USA, Canada, Europe, and the Virgin Islands.

Moving back to Arkansas, Lance hooked up with hometown friend Michael Burks. Michael went on to win the prestigious Albert King award at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, with Lance in the drum chair behind him. Then they recorded From the Inside Out, which Living Blues magazine called “debut of the year.” Lance's drumming also anchors a second album with Michael, the recently released I’m A Bluesman. I'm A Bluesman garnered a nomination for a Blues Music Award (BMA). Another recording featuring Lance's drumming is Ten Shades of Blue by Joe Pitts.

Lance is a founding member of Fonky Donkey. In addition to mentoring the Swamp Donkey (who needs all the help he can get), Lance stays busy playing in Little Rock, Arkansas every chance he can get. He is the house drummer for the Arkansas River Blues Society's Wednesday Night Blues Jam, and currently holds the drum chair in numerous Little Rock bands, including The Gil Franklin Project, the Arkaholics, Learning to Crawl featuring Bluesboy Jag, and Harrisongs with Wightman and Karen Harris.
