3 Chord Rodeo is an Austin band with deep roots in vintage country music. The band members are all veterans of the Austin, Nashville and California music scenes. We perform regularly on the dance hall and club circuit of Central and South Texas including venues like The Broken Spoke, The Saxon Pub, Mercer Dancehall, Guero’s Taco Bar Oak Garden, Bangers Sausage House and Beer Garden, The Little Longhorn Saloon, The Watering Hole Saloon (New Braunfels), Kendalia Halle, The Roundup Outdoor Music Venue (Boerne), Western Edge (Fredericksberg), and Leon Springs (San Antonio). We also keep very busy performing at weddings, private parties and corporate events, and can provide references upon request.
The band was created in 2012 by long-time Austin friends and musicians Bobby Dabbs (lead guitar) and Greg Scarborough (bass guitar and vocals). California native Lauren Ellis (steel, lead guitar and vocals) joined the band shortly after moving to Austin from Nashville, where she toured with Rita Coolidge, Rosie Flores, Rick Trevino and former Monkee Peter Tork. Keyboardist David Webb has performed and recorded in nearly every genre of American music over the last 35 years. Whether playing country music with the band Mason Dixon or Jerry Jeff Walker and the Lost Gonzo Band, Marcia Ball, Rosie Flores and Jimmy LaFave, David is always there to add his special keyboard mojo. Keeping that Texas groove on drums is either John Chandler, Pat Kennedy or Mo Roberts.
