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 Burks, I’m A Bluesman.
Have a listen as Lance takes the vocal on Fonky Donkey's take on the Nick Gravenites classic, "Buried Alive In The Blues." Recorded live at The Railyard in Little Rock, AR 11/2019.
Lance is also a talented artist. Please check out the gallery of his work.
