Grumpy Old Men
Grumpy Old Men
Grumpy Old Men, guitarist/vocalist Greg Platzer, guitarist/vocalist Stevie Clay, bassist Dean Vaccher and drummer Ray Wright ) is a band that has fun. Believe it. Born from the desire to play music for the purpose of the sheer enjoyment to those playing as well as those listening, the band plays music from such bands as The Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Steely Dan, James Gang, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, The Eagles....not to mention a handful of originals that are slowly growing, and that will be featured on an upcoming CD (working title...."Procrastination")…

The lead vocalist? Well, he's about to be a different soon as we complete auditions. Stay tuned.

Stevie "Bygawd" Clay is a grizzled veteran of the Eastern Shore Circuit, having helmed Uncle Wiggly and various other highly rated bands. Quick with a guitar, quicker with wit, he is the consummate professional and he smells really nice.

Greg Platzer may look like an escapee from an institution... it's not an act. He has a ton of notches on his guitar case, but nobody knows why. His guitar skills are the talk of hermits everywhere, and his high vocal harmonies have cracked bar mirrors all over the land.

Bassist Dean Vaccher has climbed Mt Everest TWICE in just skivvies and sandals, much to the chagrin of the Sherpas. He can make a burger disappear in seconds and likes to kiss in the dark.

Last and least, Ray Wright has been hanging with musicians for a long time. He is neat and clean and can potty himself. He beats things. He grins. He beats things some more. They clap. He smiles. All is good.

Grumpy Old Men can entertain an audience as young as 6 and as old as 60 with equal ridicule. Lots of talent, a big helping of humor and a crew that gets it done right. While not long on looks, the level of TALENT in this band is ridiculous, and NOTHING is off limits once the amps start humming......
