L.B. Taulbee: Guitar, Mandolin, Vocals
Lennox was raised in the hills of Kentucky. Going to church and school were the main social activities in the hills and playing music just came natural in a family of musicians and gospel singers. Although enjoying the music, eating took the front row seat when a family came along, and the guitar went into the closet for over 3 decades. Now with the family "raised up" the guitar came out of the closet,.
Joining the Blackbury Band has been an "unexpected treat." Although this CD is 30 years too late, it is never too late to for a music lover to: Get that instrument out of the closet and find your unexpected treat."
Garry Bury: Vocals
Garry Bury is a native Kansan, with a love of the old west, and the colorful cow town heritage of his home state. He is the youngest male member of the band, and was raised watching the TV westerns of the 1960’s. Garry says when he grows up, he “wants to be a cowboy”. Although they were before his time, Garry loves the silver screen portrayals of the cowboy way, filmed in the 30s, 40s and 50s. His music style is influenced by the vintage country music greats, Hank Williams, the Sons of the Pioneers and Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.
Garry is the lead singer for the group, LB calls him The Crooner. He sang for decades in the shower and from the congregation side of the pulpit at church. . It wasn’t until the turn of the new century that Garry started “singing out”, then performing. His rich baritone voice harmonizes so naturally with that of Bob’s & LB’s, you’d think they were brothers. Garry appreciates Bob and LB’s musical expertise and has had a great time riding this trail with them.
