The Devin Derrick Band is a touring country band featuring both original and cover songs. Depending on the venue and crowd, the band can also play red dirt and southern rock. The band tours nationally and locally in their signature yellow & black Prevost Tour Bus. Devin has played a variety of events and venues and has been the opening act for: Blake Shelton Tracy Byrd Blackhawk Alabama Doug Stone Chely Wright Reba Tracy Lawrence Mark Chestnut David Allen Coe ... and many other entertainers. Devin also appeared in Toby Keith's video, "A Little Less Talk, A Lot More Action."
Devin is a native Oklahoman, born and bred. After graduating from Edmond High School, Devin decided to make his passion his life and be a full-time musician. He began traveling across the country to perform at parties, clubs, state fairs and rodeos.
In the mid-nineties, Devin's hard work started to pay off. In 1994, while performing at the Wild Horse Saloon in downtown Nashville, he won first place in a pro-am contest. More contests and awards followed. Soon Devin hired a band and the demand only increased.
Nashville was not done blessing Devin and his career. While visiting Nashville in 2002, one of Johnny Cash’s reps approached Devin and asked him for a demo CD. A few years later, the same rep called Devin with some great news. John Carter Cash, son of the legendary Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, wanted to produce Devin’s CD.
Devin headed over to the Cash Cabin Studio in Nashville. With the help of John Carter Cash and the crew, Devin’s songs were narrowed down to a list of eleven. And there was another surprise. John Carter Cash asked Devin to record a twelfth song written by Johnny Cash himself. “Lady,” written by Cash for his wife, June Carter. It had never been recorded by anyone other than Johnny Cash himself.
The music on the CD was played by very well known session players. Robby Turner played steel and dobro for the late Waylon Jennings. Jaime Hartford, the son of the late John Hartford, played lead and rhythm guitar on the movie “Walk the Line.” Rick Lonow played on Alan Jackson’s recordings. Tony Harrell plays on most recordings of Nashville’s top charted artists. John Carter’s wife, Laura Cash, played with the Carter Family. Dave Roe played with artists such as Keith Whitley, Don Williams and Trisha Yearwood. Harry Stinson is Marty Stewart’s drummer and back-up vocalist. All of these musicians played along with Devin on the CD.
Devin Derrick’s music is for people who like traditional country music. It’s for people who remember where they came from and know how things ought to be. People who work hard for their God and for their families. People who grew up on farms or in small towns, and those who wish they had.
If you long for simpler times and the sounds of the past, Devin’s music is for you. Devin's music makes you think of singers like George Jones, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Keith Whitley.
As an award-winning vocalist, entertainer, cancer survivor, and now one of the country's top speakers, Kevin Sharp has seen and done it all. He has the direct candor and disarming honesty of someone who has nothing to lose, everything to win and a burning desire to communicate. His remarkable tale incorporates not only his story but his music as well.
With a platinum debut album, "Measure Of A Man," scores of award nominations and a string of chart topping hits including "She's Sure Taking It Well," "If You Love Somebody," and the highly acclaimed "Nobody Knows" - which held the top spot on Billboard's Country Singles Chart for an astonishing four weeks, marking the best debut by a new male country singer in five years -- Kevin is no stranger to musical success. But Kevin has experienced his share of heartbreak as well, which is evident in the emotional portrayal of his songs that has become his trademark with fans and critics alike.
Kevin is dedication to his musical career garnering numerous award nominations including "New Male Vocalist" from the Academy of Country Music, "New Touring Artist of the Year" from the Country Music Association/SRO, "Favorite New Country Artist" from the American Music Awards, Billboard Magazine's "Best New Country Video" and TNN/Music City News Awards "Male Star Of Tomorrow." He was on Billboard Magazine's Top 10 list for both Country Artist and Country Album, picked up a trophy for the CMT "Rising Male Video Star of the Year" and was crowned the "Sexiest Man" by Sacramento's News And Review. His amazing story has been showcased by media outlets including "Live with Regis and Kathy Lee," "Entertainment Tonight," and "Good Morning America," and national publications such as USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, and People Magazine. And more than one Hollywood studio hopes to reach an even wider audience with an upcoming made for television movie about Kevin's life and career.

Hailing from the deep south, Benjamin Clark began playing the piano at the tender age of two years old. Within a few months, it was clear to Benjamin’s piano instructor that he had a prodigy on his hands.
At the age of 12, when most young boys are pursuing sports and academics, Benjamin was performing on stages in New York and later at 16, he had his own nine-piece band. Generating sizable buzz, the piano prodigy began performing with 1950s Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Lloyd Price. Best known for his authentic New Orleans sound and hits including “Stagger” and “Personality,” Lloyd took a liking to Benjamin and the two formed a lasting friendship.
Following high school, Benjamin continued performing on stages with acts including Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, The Coasters, The Tempetations, Little Richard and the Isley Brothers just to name a few. At the age of 24 Benjamin wrote arrangements, conducted and performed at Carnegie Hall with a 21 piece all star orchestra that included many arrangers and musicians that he admired as a kid.
Expanding his repertoire and status within the record industry, Benjamin began to pursue executive and managerial opportunities and later served in multiple promotional, direct marketing and A&R positions for several prestigious record labels including CBS, PolyGram, Warner Brothers, RCA, Macola and Brunswick Records. Under his creative and business direction, Benjamin worked with a host of artists including Jackie Wilson, Chi-Lites, Larry Graham and Dr. Dre. In addition, Benjamin also co-founded Devel Records with industry heavyweight Clive Davis.

Recording artist Ray Raymond began his singing career in Miami’s South Beach. His evolution from a big-voiced South Beach nightclub singer into a sophisticated and accomplished international artist has mirrored his hometown’s own evolution from a one dimensional party town into a culturally sophisticated destination.
His success is due in part to his commitment to stay true to himself as an artist which is why Ray Raymond, after a decade of a stalled career (because his voice was too big to fit the current sound), has suddenly found himself toe to toe with other artists that include Josh Groban, Lara Fabian and Il Divo, artists who’s styles have all helped carve out a niche and market base in a new genre, his genre, “Popera”, and one in which Ray Raymond’s now thrives.
“Popera”, the new and exciting hybrid genre that combines Pop, Opera, and Broadway is sweeping a country starved for a reprieve from Hip-Hop, and Pop Princesses with questionable vocal ability. Ray’s stage show can be more aptly described as, “concert-style”. His popular and entertaining live performances have benefited from his previous experience as a TV host and public speaker which have contributed to his ability to command the stage in an imposing and engaging way. Onstage Ray weaves a personal and entertaining collection of stories around songs from his debut album, “Gratitude”, confidently delivered in rich tones and raw emotion. This display of Ray Raymond charisma combined with his 1st class presentation have earned him rave reviews from his audiences, the press, and fellow music professionals who have all branded him a world class talent.
“Ray Raymond, ‘a better than good singer’, introduced a more glamorous, introspective and charismatic persona. Under that banner, he wove a collection of personal, witty and sexy ballads around the other performers’ standard karaoke-like fare.” The New York Times
“Ray Raymond has emerged as one of the first legitimate singing talents to rise up in tandem with South Beach’s own culturally significant ascension. Ocean Drive Magazine
“Justin Timberlake may have coined the phrase, ‘I’m bringing sexy back’, but it’s obvious that Ray Raymond was the inspiration for the soon-to-be cliché.” Miami New Times
Starz-N-Barz formed in late 2005 recording our first cd in just 4 months the chemistry is unfounded.Our originals can be compared to great bands like Lynyrd Synyrd AC/DC Judas Preist Etc.We cover other great acts from Kid Rock to ZZTOP and many more old and new
