Billy Wayne (bass/vocals) of Burns Harbor, Calvin Hamilton (guitar/vocals) of Michigan City, Dick Miller (pedal steel) of Fish Lake, Robin Lins of Kouts (guitar/vocals) and Freddy Lee (drums/vocals) of Michigan City -- have played together for more than five years. Freddie Lee performed 9 times at the Grand Ole Opry when he toured with country star Charlie Louvin of the famous Louvin Brothers. While featuring a few original tunes, mostly written by Freddy Lee -- "Man In the Mirror" and "What I Used To Do All Night Long" -- Cookin' Country specializes in traditional country music covers. Billy Wayne, quite the vocal impressionist, will perform sets with salutes to Opry legends such as Merle Haggard, George Jones, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams. Calvin Hamilton reaches back to his '50s & '60s guitar roots to spice up shows with Texas Swing, Cal City Swing, and vintage rockabilly! Calvin provides such smooth tasteful guitar licks to the equation "He actually paints a picture in my mind" He also sings great and harmonizes beautifully! Robin Lins adds such sweet vocals and harmony to the group with her Patsy Cline to Janis Joplin range not to mention outstanding rhythm guitar playing that compliments the lead guitar and pedal steel! Me, I am the lucky pedal steel guitarist that gets to hang with this great band!
