Midcoast musicians back Myers
Nobleboro — Debbie Myers and her band Redneck Rodeo will perform from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 as a highlight of the 40th annual North Nobleboro Day celebration, hosted by the North Nobleboro Community Association.
Myers’s band has featured the talents of Brian Hallsey on drums, Fred “Tommy” Thompson of Waldoboro on steel guitar, Robbie Coffin (from Rockland) on electric guitar and Jackson Gay on bass. Ronald Bouffard and Edward “Fiddle Hands”) Howe also have performed with the band.
Myers has been singing professionally since age 8, starting her career by the side of her father, Gerry Myers, a founding band member of the Bunkhouse Boys. By the late 1980s, she had three Top 12 hit singles on the Canadian music scene; one hit went all the way to No. 1 on French radio. She recorded an album in Nashville with songs written by herself, her sister Shirley and Rod Nicholson. She has performed on television, radio and in shows with Mickey Gilley, Steve Wariner, Highway 101 and Little Jimmy Dickens.
North Nobleboro Day will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the North Nobleboro Community Hall on the Upper East Pond Road. In addition to Myers’ performance, there will be outstanding food with a chicken BBQ, auctions, raffles and homemade crafts.
