UNDER THE INFLUENCE
June 4 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm$7.00
The band was formed in 2000 by Lance Burnett and Dalton Hembree. John St.Clair joined soon after, and Jeremy Jowers and Rodney Janes became members in 2004. They are all from Seymour, Texas except guitarist Jowers who is from Quanah.
Under the Influence has a unique sound ranging from country to blues to rock n roll. Their influences include, but not limited to Merle Haggard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Willie Nelson, John Lennon, and Superman.
Although there are several versions on how the band got its name, Burnett said the most likely reason is back when they were playing all covers, they needed to come up with a name for the paper fast and they were learning a song off of Alan Jackson’s album Under the Influence.
Even though they all have day jobs they come together for the same reason, the absolute love for the music and to entertain. They truly are passionate about music and performing for the crowd.
Some of the venues they have played at are The Cotton Boll in Vernon, Texas, Iron Horse Pub in Wichita Falls, Texas, Farm Fest in Chillicothe, and Graham Central Station, as well as many others venues in Texas and Oklahoma.
They have also played with many great bands including Cross Canadian Ragweed, Mike McClure, Shooter Jennings, Brandon Jenkins, Johnny Cooper, Brandon Rhyder, and many more.
When describing the bands unique sound they collectively say it is Brewed in Texas with the Red Dirt flavor you’re sure to enjoy!

Lance Burnett – Vocals/Guitar
Jeremy Jowers – Guitar/Vocals
John St.Clair – Drums & Percussion
