Gracie Maple and the White Crowe Band, also known as the White Crowe Band, have been a constant in the live music scene in West Central Florida. Even when the live music scene seemed bleak, these talented musicians never dropped a beat bringing their dynamic harmonies and exceptional guitar work to venues and private gatherings while observing social distancing protocols.
The core of the band brings
together the vocal and guitar
stylings of Ron White and BKCrowe,
both seasoned musicians. Ron, a
native of Bradenton, has been
seen throughout West Central
Florida playing with some of the
top musicians at numerous venues
in SWFL as well as hosting many
special events and 'acoustic jams'
that bring together the live music community. BKCrowe rolled into Florida in 2016 bringing a wealth of live and recorded music experience playing with signed artists across the United States and recording 2 solo CD's and appearing on numerous recordings on several labels and touring throughout the US.
The band is a dynamic and fluid mix, incorporating the skills of additional exceptionally talented musicians to fill out a full-band experience when events warrant. Musicians who occasionally perform with the band include Stephanie Price, vocalist of sToneFish, Morgan Lawson, keyboard and vocalist of Beach Vibes, Ira Elliot, drummer of the touring group Nada Surf, Scotty B, drummer of sToneFish, Weston Reid, drummer of Hester Prynn and Remedy, Randy Lindsay, bassist of The Verge, James Cotton, bassist of Texas Surf Rats, and John Nopper, guitarist of Texas Surf Rats.
As we close out the year and move into 2021 we are excited Gracie Maple and the White Crowe Band will be offering West Central Florida the very best in live music.
