Paul Chet - Vocals
Paul is a native of Fort Collins, Colorado. Being a country man at heart, he also feels right at home in Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. His love of country music started at a young age. He's been passionate about it since, singing all along the Colorado and Wyoming Front Range over the past 30 years.
On stage he's highly entertaining, full of life and energy. He can bring you to tears either from him powerful voice, or from his crazy antics or wardrobe. If you've never seen him live, get ready for a great show!
Paul is highly driven. He believes in hard work and is often up before the rooster. Paul is also a caring man. On his small farm just outside of Fort Collins, he and his other half have several animals, which they care deeply about.
When he's not belting out powerful lyrics on-stage, Paul is slinging scissors at his salon.
Tim Gauthier - Lead Guitar/Vocals
Tim started playing guitar as a teenager in Lincoln Nebraska, and it has been his passion ever since. At age 13, he traded some darkroom equipment for his first electric guitar. He modified an old record player and speaker to work as an amp and began playing along with popular recordings of the day like “Pinball Wizard” and “Day Tripper.” Tim’s musical tastes grew to become very eclectic. His playing style draws from a varied background in numerous rock, bluegrass, country, blues, and jazz groups.
While earning a music degree from Colorado State University, Tim enjoyed playing in several jazz ensembles. He went on to finish a master’s degree in education from the University of Northern Colorado. In addition to completing a fulfilling, 27-year, teaching career with the Poudre School District of Fort Collins, CO, he has played as a member or side man in a variety of regional groups for over thirty years.
Tim was the Rockygrass Flat-Pick Guitar Champion for 2001, where he took home a beautiful Gibson J-45 guitar as first prize. He has also competed in the National Flat-Picking Championships in Winfield, Kansas.
Tim’s passion for music comes through with every performance. When he’s not playing music, you are likely to find him listening to some great tunes while working on a carpentry project of some sort around his home.
