GATOR COUNTRY: In early 2005 a new band was formed that consisted of five original-era members of the legendary southern rockers Molly Hatchet. Included were drummer Bruce Crump, guitarist Duane Roland, guitarist Steve Holland, vocalist Jimmy Farrar, and bassist Riff West.

GATOR COUNTRY: In early 2005 a new band was formed that consisted of five original-era members of the legendary southern rockers Molly Hatchet. Included were drummer Bruce Crump, guitarist Duane Roland, guitarist Steve Holland, vocalist Jimmy Farrar, and bassist Riff West. These talented musicians wrote and recorded on all of the Molly Hatchet band’s gold, platinum, and multiplatinum albums. Unquestionably, the members of GATOR COUNTRY were very much instrumental in forging out the legend of their earlier classic band with such songs as "Flirtin’ With Disaster", "Gator Country", "Bounty Hunter", "Whiskey Man", "Beatin’ The Odds", "Dreams I'll Never See", "Boogie No More", "Bloody Reunion", and others.

After playing at a memorial concert for Molly Hatchet’s vocalist Danny Joe Brown, they decided it was time to perform together again. Due to the fact that the original band’s moniker was licensed out, they picked the title of an early hit song for the new band name. Adding an old friend and seasoned guitarist from Virginia, Linni Disse, the "triple-guitar attack" is once again carrying on its unique and traditional sounds as GATOR COUNTRY. After performing as GATOR COUNTRY the past eighteen months for their loyal fans, both old and new, the band was devastated with the sudden death of beloved guitarist Duane Roland.

Upon considerable thought and with the full blessing of Duane’s family, the band’s decision was to carry on in his memory. His "Flying V guitar" will now proudly stand alongside Danny Joe Brown’s mic onstage at every GATOR COUNTRY performance. Quoting Ronnie Van Zant … "You are gone, but not forgotten." Paul Chapman, longtime friend and admirer of Molly Hatchet, is a legendary British guitarist formerly with UFO and now a Florida resident. He respectfully and graciously offered his services to sit in until a member was added.

At the very first rehearsal, after the first few bars of "Beatin’ The Odds" everyone onstage knew it wasn’t just temporary… it rocked! GATOR COUNTRY welcomes Paul as their newest member and looks forward to carrying on their longtime tradition of great legendary rock. Having just released their new single "Oh Atlanta", GATOR COUNTRY is now back on the road with the "Real Deal Tour" performing their legendary songs. Brash and gutsy … GATOR COUNTRY is once again a smokin’ locomotive of a rock and roll band. You best believe it! Read more on Last.fm.
