OUR MUSICAL ACTS
Les Richardson was born and raised on a ranch in White Salmon, Washington, a small community about an hour east of Portland, Oregon. At the young age of 12, Les decided to give up his dirt bike and follow his true calling for music. After playing gigs like singing the national anthem for the Portland Trailblazers, singing in bars, rodeos, and fairs all around the Pacific Northwest, and even buying his own tour bus, it was time for him to take his talent along with his million-dollar voice to the next level and move to Nashville.
Since moving to Nashville, he has appeared on such shows as Star Search and Nashville Star, has performed at the Ryman Auditorium, and on the Grand Ole Opry stage numerous times. Les has also shared the stage with such performers as Big and Rich, Dierks Bentley, 3 Doors Down, John Rich, and many more.
SCOTT MAREK BAND
Scott has been one of the house bands for The World Famous Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville and is playing venues throughout the Midwest. He has already had the privilege of opening for major country artists including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Rodney Atkins, Diamond Rio, Bucky Covington, Keith Anderson, Colt Ford, Chely Wright, Jaron and the Long Road to Love, and many more. He has also had the honor of playing for many benefit celebrations that have supported St. Jude, American Cancer Society, Team Layne, the Humane Society, Wounded Warriors, First Book of McLean County, Jammin’ for Hammit, and Save-a-Vet.
Until now, Scott has fine-tuned his skills and gained experience on-stage alone. He has searched long and hard for a handful of talented, dedicated, exciting musicians to complete his country music vision. Finally, one of the best male country voices in Illinois has teamed up with two fantastic musicians to form one of the most talented Top 40 Country bands in Illinois.
