This husband and wife team has been writing and performing their own music for many years, down a road that began in the early 70's: a journey that they now hope will come full circle to where they began-on stage, entertaining the masses!
Their combined song-writing abilities have left them with hundreds of original compositions, from rock'n'roll, country, and gospel, to their favorite -rhythm and blues. Their love of the blues has led to the formation of their latest group, The Stallions, featuring Lynnann.
Bill's love of the 12-bar blues, coupled with his endearing friendship with the likes of Jimmie Vaughan and his late brother, Stevie Ray, has added to his versatility as an instrumentalist-guitar, drums, piano, etc.-and as a vocalist...
Lynnann's vocal ability is a powerful example of pure soul-wrenching emotion! Her accomplishments include winning one of the spots in the Houston Music Council's 1997 Song Writing Contest, under the Blues Division, while singing with the "Brad McCool Band". The song "Feelin' Like" can be found on the H.M.C.'s 4th released CD.
Bill and Lynnann have played many places over the years, all the way from Fort Worth's Sylvania Club, and Waco's hottest spots like MC's25 Club, Buzzard Billy's, Cadillac Jacks, and the Harley Davidson Annual New Years Eve Bash, to Austin's hottest blues club, Antone's. Lynnann has sat in with other groups, like the 'Brad McCool Band', throughout the Houston area, at clubs like Billy Blues, The Big Easy, the Last Concert, and the Satellite Club(to name just a few). The Gandys are also quite well known for their beneit work and have also had the honor of rockin&rollin the masses at various festivals throughout the land!
