Who Are We?

More so than anything, Hillbilly Crutch is a Classic Country band that plays originals and covers. Their Music is from a wide range of genres in the realm of mostly classic outlaw country-ish. It's not enough that they can be considered just a Classic Country band nor are they anything else specifically. Hillbilly Crutch is a melting pot of music from the likes of Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash. They also provide high energy Cow Punk and rowdy foot stomping Americana that really gets the blood flowing. Juke Joint Swing, Roadhouse, Rockabilly, Blues, and Bluegrass are also in line with Hillbilly Crutch's music. 

Formed in Sunset Beach, CA, the band is filled with tons of music experience and numerous influences across many genres providing a strong base that rounds out with a father and son duo up-front. The band members are Ryan Archer (acoustic guitar, vocals), Dean Archer (acoustic guitar, vocals), Randy Cochran (bass fiddle, vocals), Dave Tabone (drums & audio), Gary Riley (guitar, mandolin, lap-steel) and Dale Anderson (electric guitar).
