Cost

Free! All are welcome.

Myron Elkins is a 20 year-old from a small town in Michigan, where friends are family and family are friends. Values matter where he's from. It's the kind of place where a handshake is your contract, and you're true to your family name. Where Grandpa taught you to play that guitar, and Grandma taught you how to not be late for supper. Where you still say your prayers and remove your hat when you’re supposed to. Simple. Honest.

Along with his band, The Dying Breed, the music harkens back to the days of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. It isn’t contrived, it’s just a way of life for Myron Elkins and The Dying Breed.

That Myron Elkins grew up in Allegan County listening to his grandfather’s vintage country music – Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Merle Haggard – says a lot about this young singer and guitarist.
And when he opens his mouth to sing, there’s absolutely no doubt: This 19-year-old clearly was born to sing country with a gritty, old-school edge. But credit soulful icons Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, Etta James, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker and Bob Seger for really inspiring Elkins’ older-than-his-years voice. (Local Spins)

Band members include: lead guitarist Caleb Stampfler, drummer Ricky LaDuke, bassist McKinnon Elkins and guitarist Avry Whitaker.
