This lineup has been together for some two years and counting, putting out a mighty musical mix of contemporary and classic country, plus familiar rock and pop songs to keep surprises going, along with the songs you don't mind hearing again and again. Once known as New City Road, it's been NCR for quite some time with bandmates Jessi Dooley (vocals, guitar), Josh Hutchison (vocals, guitar), Chris Harris (vocals, bass), Allan Harris (vocals, guitar) and Tim Lynn (drums) giving it their all at every show, as true performers can, will and must do. A big part of this band is the special set up of four lead vocalists, which also leads to some fine harmonies happening, plus opens up the set list to a wide assortment of songs that each singer brings to the stage. Officially a Bud Light Party Night band, NCR bridges music gaps with expert ease and does it all doing high-energy shows that accentuate the fun times music can make happen.
