About the band

The April First Band was born at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Allen with four guitars and not much else.  After a little fooling around, and the addition of a real musician who also played keyboards, we created a bass player, discovered a lead guitarist, and found someone willing to sing.  We recently added a fiddle player and a female vocalist and the rest is history. 

The band performs an eclectic mix of rock, country, blues, and whatever else comes to mind.  Band members include:
