LongNeck Catz

Three musicians, three states, how can that work?

Chris Hale and Patrick Bares grew up as neighbors and class mates in Merrill, Wisconsin.  In school they found a mutual love for music.   A few years later after guitarist Chris had played in his first band "Jason",  "Hammer" was formed with bassist Patrick and toured the Midwest circuit - Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota.  Following that they formed a new project, "Clean Cutz".

Jody Lawler started drumming in North Dakota's "Fandango" at age 15.

Jody and Chris met while living in Minneapolis and began playing music and writing songs together.  LongNeck Catz was formed after a couple of incarnations.  Recently reunited with Chris via the internet, Patrick is a very welcome infusion of insight, creativity and energy to the LongNeck Catz.  They now collaborate and record over the 650 miles or so upon which they are spread out. They are loving every minute of it and crave more.

Now with a long list of original songs, they are continuing to write and perform their unique style of music which has roots in rock and crosses over into other genres as well.  They are beginning to build a fan base and are excited to be playing shows in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
