Wayne “Gator” Folse is a stellar blues and rock guitarist. Performing in New Orleans for over 25 years, Gator is a veteran in the festival and concert arena, playing with such notables as the legendary "Coasters" as well as show and casino bands. Versatile and always entertaining, Gator combines many techniques on the guitar and vocals to give a unique blend of blues and rock with a little country and Cajun, as evidenced by his tour with Allen Fontenot and the Country Cajuns. A must see for anyone interested hearing "unique guitar in the hands of a master."
His first musical memory is at a tender age when he asked his older brother to show him some chords on the guitar. Gator learned A minor to a point that he chased all the members of the household, playing the chord incessantly. "They realized this is what I liked to do....play guitar."
Michael “Mudcat” Reames came to Frisco, Texas, from Oak Cliff—by way of New Orleans. In an odyssey that took him from playing as a teenager with Stevie Ray Vaughan in the band Liberation, to jamming with the fledgling ZZ Top, singing in a Yes tribute band, rocking the New Orleans Club scene, then returning to North Texas after Katrina blew it all away, Mudcat has pretty much seen it all. He was an initial founder of the non-profit Collin County Songwriters Association, and is now its senior ambassador. Through it all, the singing, guitar, percussion, and blues harmonica playing hasn’t stopped.
Mudcat writes, plays and sings Blue Rock music in an authentic and honest style. A co-founder of the Collin County Songwriters Association in North Texas, Michael has a rich musical past that has crossed paths with the likes of his contemporary and fellow Oak Cliff native, Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Mudcat is proud of his work, and knows the importance of developing a style of song that his audience wants.
