Scott Lyle Band
Scott Lyle Band (formerly The Gringo Kings) have a style of their own. Their energetic music with a Texas flair tells the story of rodeos, friends, cowboys, and just growing up.
The band was formed in May of 2007 and has been going strong ever since. The band has released three singles within the last two years and all three charted on the Texas Regional Radio Report, The Texas Music Charts, and The Roots Music Charts.
Scott Burgess and Torey Lyle Smith contribute the songwriting, cover the vocals, mandolin, harmonica, and rhythm guitar. Darren Carbone, lead guitar, Robin Fitts, bass guitar, and Mario Calderon, drums complete the Scott Lyle Band.
Here’s the Scott Lyle Band performing ‘What I Mean’ live in Waxahachie, Texas:
Hailing from Stillwater, Oklahoma, Bo Phillips brings an eclectic variety of musical influences with him to the stage. From the first note until the last encore, you can be sure that you will leave with a smile. His debut album, “Dirt Road”, features all original music. You will hear soulful ballads, gritty lead rides, toe-tapping favorites, and a couple of funny moments. His new album, “Fishin’ with Grandpa” takes it to an entirely new level.
Born in Houston, Texas, Bo and his two brothers (Stephan Phillips and Stoney LaRue) were raised by their grandparents in southeastern Oklahoma. Upon graduation, Bo moved to Stillwater and received his degree in agricultural education from Oklahoma State University. He then began his career as a high school agriculture teacher. After teaching for six years, he decided it was time to pursue his lifelong dream…music.
He got his first guitar when he was nine years old. It came with a chord book that showed three chords. “The rest, I learned from watching Austin City Limits.” He played all his life, but never took it seriously until he moved to Stillwater and was immersed in the culture. And as with all his shows, “You’ll pay for the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge.”
