Scott, Jimmy, Zach and Paul have been playing together since sometime in 2017. We started just playing for fun, just to have somebody else to jam with. In 2019 we decided that we wanted to step up our game and start playing out. That was the point we realized that none of the 4 of us can sing worth a crap and if we didn't want our first gig to be our last, we needed a singer. After talking to a few people, a mutual friend suggested that we call Emily. So after chatting a couple times we had Em come in for an audition. It took roughly about 30 seconds for us to figure out she was exactly what we were looking for. Once you hear her sing, you'll understand too.
We worked up a 24 song set and our good friend Jason Estes gave us our big break. August 12th, 2019 at The Village Idiot Pub we landed the coveted Sunday afternoon slot and thanks to lots of friends and family, we had an awesome turnout. Jason sold a lot of beer and said "OK, you guys can have a Saturday night, and I'm going to bring in 2 more bartenders". In 2021, after having multiple guest musicians from time to time, we added Don into the lineup as a jack of all trades. We have now played over 100 gigs at various local pubs, brewery's and party's and more than quadrupled that 24 song set. When I look back, Its hard to believe how much we have grown.
Alter Ego is a six piece band playing a wide variety of Rock, Funk, Country and Dance music. We have gone from that original 24 up to around 80 songs and are adding more all the time. Some of the artists we cover include; ACDC, Janis Joplin, Heart, Gretchen Wilson, Lynard Skynard, Linda Ronstadt, B-52s, Black Crowes and many, many others.
