The Country Knights Band invites you to listen to this Nashville quality recording. The CD contains all original material written and performed by Maui musicians, and was also produced and recorded in its entirety here on Maui.
The core musicians of The Country Knights Band are:
Herb Andrews, born in Tupelo, Mississippi. Herb learned to sing and play the guitar at an early age. As a journeyman entertainer, he moved to Maui in the late seventies. His forte is a beautiful rich voice that will become obvious to the listener as he weaves his way through the country and island style songs of this CD.
Rob Loney, born and raised into a professional musical family here in Hawaii. Rob started his music career very young, performing in clubs on Front Street (Lahaina, Maui) in the mid seventies. In the late seventies, Rob left Hawaii for the first time. He attended music school in L.A. to hone his bass playing skills and returned to Hawaii in the early eighties. Rob''s dedication to his craft has culminated in the expert job of producing this recording.
Jon Melia, born on the East Coast, became a drummer early in life and after two years of music college began his journey west, stopping in Nevada for 14 years. Jon became a band leader for Harrah''s Reno and Lake Tahoe before moving to Maui in 1986. Jon met Rob in 1988 while working in the Buddy Fo Hawaiian Country Show at the Maui Tropical Plantation. A short time later, Rob joined the band and they''ve been working together ever since.
The Country Knights Band was formed in 1991 after Rob & Jon met Herb. The group has been mainly a convention band for the major resorts here in Hawaii as Country Knights and Classic Knights, performing country music as well as classic rock & roll, soul and Motown favorites.
This CD has a wide appeal that will satisfy the country music fan, along with those who enjoy the lilting sounds of island style melodies. We ask you to give it a listen, and if you enjoy it, to spread the word.
