The Billboard charting country band Sawyer Brown will come to the Chumash Casino on May 25 as part of a nationwide tour. The show is at 8 p.m., and tickets are $25 to $35.
Sawyer Brown last appeared at the Chumash Casino Resort in 2015 and included a full assortment of their greatest hits.
The group has released 23 studio albums, three of which have been certified gold in the United States for sales of 500,000 copies.
More than 50 of their singles have entered the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including three No. 1 singles: “Step That Step,” “Some Girls Do” and “Thank God for You.”
Sawyer Brown also received a Horizon Award from the Country Music Association in 1985, five Vocal Band of the Year Awards from the TNN Music City News Country Awards, as well as a Vocal Group of the Year award in 1997 from the Academy of Country Music.
The group's members were originally part of country pop singer Don King's Road Band. When King stopped touring in 1981, the group decided to stay together, taking the name Sawyer Brown after Sawyer Brown Road, the street where they rehearsed.
The band eventually auditioned for the TV show “Star Search” in 1983 and ended up winning the $100,000 grand prize and record contract.
The group’s current lineup features Mark Miller (vocals), Jim Scholten (bass), Gregg “Hobie” Hubbard (keyboards), Joe Smyth (drums) and Shayne Hill (lead guitar).
The Chumash Casino Resort is located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, and is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for the show are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.
