Hello everyone, I am one of the Original Founding Members of the No Deposit Band along with my Childhood Brother Mark "Buck" Wheat.
Playing Rhythm Guitar, Keyboards and some Vocals in the Band.
I have been playing Guitar & Keys for many years and I have been truly blessed to have had the opportunity to play along side some really Great Musicians.
As a young child (Pictured Here) my Mom would have me dance for her while she sang or played one of her favorite Elvis Records. Even as a Teen I would sneak around and listen to my Mom's Elvis Records and dream of actually playing and singing in a band one fine day. My Mom didn't always like the type of music l played, but she was always 100% supportive of me no matter the Music Genre.
Well anyway, it certainly happened,, Dreams do come true! I'm in NDB!!
I owe my inspiration to play Guitar to my Brother Mark Wheat from Tompkinsville. He loaned me his own Guitar as kids until I could afford my own and patiently helped me learn to play it, he was and still is an Awesome Teacher, Friend, Brother and an Original Founding Member of No Deposit Band.
I have played many venues and the one thing that has never changed,, I have always been content with being a Rhythm Guitar Player, I just wanted to do my own thing on Rhythm within the concept of the band and cover everyone else, I sorta got my main Rhythm Guitar Licks from the 60's R&B, Free, Grand Funk Railroad, Cream, Stone's, Steppenwolf, Wild Cherry, Bee Gee's, Jackson 5, All The Best Music!!
I also have to give my Keyboard Playing Credit to my Piano Teacher Mrs. Brenda Walden of Tompkinsville.
She was to me and still is an Awesome Teacher! Every single lesson I took from her was always so inspiring, she made it fun and it made me want to Practice, Practice, Practice!
The main person in my life who deserves the most credit for my musical success is my wonderful wife Deb, she has been with me every step of my musical way,, Seen it all,, Musician Ego BS, Adults that never grow up, The Good & Bad Times.
Always helping me whether it be carrying my Instruments to a Practice or to a Gig or always encouraging me to keep on playing even when I or the Band wasn't Clicking,, she is my Awesome Rock.
It really makes me smile looking back on the people who helped inspire me musically and mold me as a Musician throughout the years and I am very, very thankful for each and every one of you and your Inspiration. Good or Bad.
I love our current line up, this Band has a really Good Vibe, it is a pleasure getting to play along side these very talented Musicians that make up the NO DEPOSIT BAND!
