A Few Words About The Josh Abbott Band

A Few Words About The Josh Abbott Band

The “Josh Abbot Band” is a country group from USA, Texas. The good folks which form this band are Josh Abbot on vocals and guitar, Austin Davis on the banjo, Preston Wait and Caleb Keeter on guitars, Edward Villanueva on percussions, James Hertless on the bass, and David Fralin on keys.

The history of Josh Abbot Band began in Lubbock, Texas, in 2006. Josh formed the band while attending the Texas Tech University. At the time, he was a part of the Phi Delta Theta chapter. He was a step away from getting a master’s degree, but the pull music had on him was stronger, thus he founded the “Josh Abbot Band” with a couple of frat brothers – Austin Davis, Drew Hurt, and Neel Huey.

They recorded their first demo in 2007 and began with tours a year after. Within the same year, Huey and Hurt had dropped out, replaced by Preston Walt & Eddie Villanueva. In the year of 2009, the band recorded the album “Scapegoat”, and the year after that came the reinforcements – James and Caleb joined in.
