Introducing the 380 West Band!
Genres: Americana/ Alt.Country / Classic Rock
Members: Derek Choat, Rick Clayborn, Steve Alsup, John Bullock, Randy Brownlow
In the fall of 2003, some of us were sitting by a fire at Burch’s Welding Shop. We were passing an acoustic guitar around playing songs. This is where the 380 West Band actually formed. We would play there free every Thursday night. Soon we had about 75-100 people coming in our small town of 600 people. In 2005-6 the Red Dirt Music hit the scene. We picked up Derek Choat, on vocals. Steve Alsup, who I knew at college, plays steel guitar. T Wesley Carter plays bass, Micky Stoddard and Chris Widner are on drums, and myself, Ricky Clayborn, play lead guitar and vocals. We play a mix of traditional country, Texas Red Dirt, and quite a bit of Southern Rock, as well as a few original songs I have written and composed. The rest is history.The 380 West Band has an interesting mix of guitars and vocals to please!! Styles range. from Rock to Bluegrass…its just what the crowd wants to hear! Come out and tap your toes to their great music! See ya at the Red River Wine Festival!
