There is nothing more American than Outlaw Country Music. And OUTLAW'D is all about being American serving up OUTLAW'D Outlaw Country!
Since forming in 2006 the band has entertained audiences with their diverse and dynamic music at a variety of venues in both Michigan and Wisconsin. Starting with their first gig at Bleachers Sports bar in Hancock Michigan, OUTLAW'D soon developed a loyal following.
In response to the crowd enthusiasm and developing a loyal following, OUTLAW'D expanded their song library and now play Classic Country, Contemporary Country, Southern Rock, and varied styles of Modern Rock along with some originals. OUTLAW'Ds current member lineup has remained constant and now includes a musical flavoring of Acoustic Guitar (Marc Alan), Bass Guitar (Mary Kerttu), Drums (Mark Lucier), Pedal Steel, Power Slide and Mandolin (Kevin Maki) and Lead Guitar (Chad Borgen) and on occasion, Fiddle (Becca Augustine).
More recent years have found OUTLAW'D having some success participating in contests. 2015 found them finishing 2nd in the Hodag Main stage Wisconsin State Band Competition. This has helped to create even more opportunities for the band to commit to summer festivals, outdoor concerts and club dates. 2017 is proving to be another great year of performances.
A dynamic sound, great vocals, high energy, and engaging crowd interaction is an outlaw formula for an enjoyable show.
GET UP AND SHAKE IT TO OUTLAW'D!! YEEEEEEHAAAAWWWW!!!
