Dewayne is the lead guitarist, singer, sound engineer, and mix artist. This versatile musician and singer has worked with - and been invited to play and sing with a wide variety of artists and bands from all types of genres.

Each song written by different members of the band has a specific meaning to them. “Southern Wind” by Steve Sisco speaks of his love for the country and its flag. “Beverly Jean” by Drummer Dallas McCalister is about how he met his wife, Beverly Jean. “She Cries” by the late lead singer and songwriter, Trent McCoy is a love song accompanied by strong vocals. This kind of intimate and emotional music is what cements The Ober River Band as an exceptional new addition to the music industry!
