The East Texas Garage Band is "One Loud, In Your Face, Rock N Roll Band!" We are a Classic Rock band that covers everything from AC/DC to ZZ Top. ETGB can be found at Bike Rally's, Clubs, Bars, Fields, Private Parties, and of course Garages all over East Texas; and we have been known on occasion to travel to other parts of the world to party down with you.

Though officially formed in 2004, the roots of ETGB go back over 30 years when Paul first convinced his high school band mates to let his good friend Keith sing some harmonies on the Bob Seger tune they were working up; since then, the name has changed and members have come and gone, but one thing has always remained the same: it's all about the fun and all about the music - Classic Rock with a Southern Drawl!

Paul Werner - Guitar, Vocals

Pauly picked up first guitar at fifteen and started playing in his first combo soon after, including two bands while serving in the Army in California. Once his tour of duty was over, Pauly returned to Texas where he earned his Associates in Music Production while performing with his new band, DV8. When DV8 folded, Pauly hit the road, running lights, sound and/or staging for George Strait, .38 Special, Charlie Daniels, Alan Jackson, The Judds and others. When the allure of room service finally wore off, Pauly returned home, playing guitar and singing at various open mics and jam sessions, forming ETGB in 2004.

Keith Craker - Vocals

Former lead singer of 2 FAST 2 LAST, Keith joined the band in 2009 at Paul's invitiation so the band leader could concentrate on harder and harder guitar leads - soon, the band was adding The Eagles, Roy Orbison, and Cheap Trick to the song list to keep par with Keith's range and clarity. When not singing with ETGB, he can be found on stage in Terrell and Mesquite performing community theatre; teaching voice lessons to aspiring singers; and partnering up with friends to write original songs.

David (SuperDave) Andries - Bass, Vocals

Keith and Pauly poached Dave from Keith's brother's old band, DICK WHISKEY, and haven't regeretted it once. Out of all the guys, Dave has been performing the longest, joining his first band at twelve and sharing the professional stage with such acts as Kansas, Huey Lewis and the News, The Motels, Foghat and Peter Gabriel. Dave brings a wealth of knowlege and experience along with his big bass sound and soulful vocals.

Brett Thurman - Guitar, Vocals

Brett is a west Texas native from Abilene Tx. During the 80’s he played in the hair metal scene and earned the nickname "Thurmanator" which remains today. He lives with his family in Lewisville Tx and has two mini me’s - Ezra 6 and Beck 3 - who are in the process of becoming a power trio at some point. Although he has mellowed a bit, the legend still lives as he has kept his promise, “I will be back”... just with car seats and a diaper bag.

Ryan Nagy - Drums

Ryan started playing drums in junior high band and got his first drum kit when he was 14. He was fortunate enough to take lessons from South Bend, Indiana legend Bill “Stix” Nicks, learning from Steely Dan and Rush albums. He honed his skills in marching bands and with THE SMOKE HOUNDS (aka Pavlov’s Dogs) on their albums Marking Our Territory and Unleashed. His most recent band was COLD SHOT, who played in the Midwest.
