ABOUT THE BAND MEMBERS:
Derek Posey (Rhythm Guitar & Lead Vocals) grew up listening to AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Garth Brooks, and George Strait but never had any real interest in music till the age of 19. In his Sophomore year of college he purchased his first acoustic guitar and had taught himself to play within a year. He then formed a band with some classmates that played the local bars in Angola, Indiana. After graduation the band went their separate ways and Derek started to play acoustic shows as a solo country artist testing out his vocals for the first time. In January of 2016 he started playing with the current band and has been playing with the group consistently ever since. Derek’s love for real country music and southern rock can be easily be heard through his originals and covers.
Jeff Hatch (Lead Guitar) is the newest addition to the Derek Posey Band. He picked up his first guitar at the age of 9, after begging his parents for a guitar since the age of 7. Jeff started his musical career by sneaking in to bars to attend jam nights hosted by local legend Frank Medley. Shortly after, he hit the road with his first band and has continued to pursue his passion for music ever since. Aside from being a jam night junkie, Jeff has spent time playing covers and originals for bands Grendl, Yellow No. 5, Empty 5th, and Felt prior to joining the Derek Posey Band. When he isn’t trying to be a rock star, you can find him at his day job trying to keep people safe, hanging out with his wife Sheena and their furry friends, riding his motorcycle, or at the tattoo parlor.
Caleb Mccoy (Bass Guitar & Back up vocals) is one of the 2 McCoy’s holding down the rhythm section of the Derek Posey Band. He grew up with a true love for music, a curious mind for all genres and instruments, and has yet to find something that he has not wanted to pick up and play. A self-taught guitarist, Caleb is our low end champ and loves bringing exciting bass lines and riffs to our shows. You never know what he and his father will surprise you with at any given show.
Dave Mccoy (drums) grew up in small towns across Oklahoma in a musical family. His roots are in Gospel, Country, Texas Blues, and Rock. He started playing drums at 12 and has performed on and off over the years with different groups from garage rock bands, high school jazz band, a corporate band, and even a short stint as a studio musician for a member of the Oklahoma Opry.
Dennis Lowe (rhythm guitar & lead guitar) hails from the south Louisiana city of Lafayette where he grew up listening to everything from blues, country, cajun and zydeco to rock and roll and beyond. A self-taught guitarist and harmonica player with some bar band experience
