Meet The Band

Dave Goodman - fiddle, lead and harmony vocals

The founder of the New Early Sunrise Band, Dave Goodman contributes dynamic arrangements and strong rhythm to the band. His vocals are featured on a number of swing tunes, and his emcee work keeps the NESB show rolling along smoothly.

Geff King - bass guitar, lead and harmony vocals

Geff King evokes the sound of the honky-tonks and roadhouses of the past with his original songs and strong bass playing. A 15-year veteran of both bluegrass and country bands, Geff is also well known in the Washington, DC area as a solo performer and recording artist, and he has played with national acts such as Hazel Dickens, Bill Kirchen, L. C. Smith, Cliff Waldron and Buzz Busby.

Dave Hadley - pedal steel guitar and lead electric guitar

A veteran performer for over 10 years, Dave Hadley toured the mid-Atlantic region with the US Army Band and played locally before joining the NESB, opening for the likes of The Band and the O'Kanes. He is, in the words of WAMU-FM disk jockey Al Steiner, "an animal", offering up surprises with each and every pedal steel and guitar break.

Archie Warnock - rhythm guitar, lead and harmony vocals

Archie Warnock has over 15 years of professional experience in bluegrass and country music to contribute to the New Early Sunrise Band. He brings fresh new material and strong lead vocals to the band, having performed in the past with Frontier Justice, Windy Ridge and the Twigg Brothers in the Baltimore area.

Richard Shaeer - sound engineer

A band is only as good as the sound it presents, and talented sound man Richard Shaeer ensures that the New Early Sunrise Band always sounds their best. His state-of-the art sound equipment at every show demonstrates the commitment of the New Early Sunrise Band to putting on the best show possible each and every time out.
