CONSIDER OUTBACK FOR YOUR NEXT DANCE , EVENT OR CELEBRATION
OutBack is a professional variety band who enjoy the people they entertain, as much as the music they perform. From young to old, this band has music you will love and their crowd participation and spur of the moment comedy always brings chuckles and laughter. OutBack plays many of the old favorites in Country and Classic Rock but also keeps current on the popular songs.
Four of OutBack’s members have been entertaining for over 30 years. Their experience and comfortable attitude with the crowd has gained them quite a following.

Bloomfield, Nebraska- Rhythm Guitar, Lead & Harmony Vocals
Laurie has been playing in front of crowds since she was 13 and has opened for greats such as The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Eddie Rabbit, Janie Fricke, Ricky Skaggs and many others.
Forestburg, South Dakota – Drums, Lead & Harmony Vocals
Music has always been my first love. (After pretty women, of course!) Regretfully, my parents never supported me in my endeavor. Neither of my parents has ever seen me play in my now 48 years of doing so. “Get a regular job” was the mantra around the house growing up. Both flatly refused to buy me any instruments. Stubborn New Englander that I am, I didn’t let that stop me.
Lynch, Nebraska – Keyboard and Vocals
Howard’s music career began with piano lessons in 1957 and continued for three years culminating in an inability to read music, much to the frustration of the teacher and to this very day Howard still cannot read music, but he sure can play it well. “YOU’RE PLAYING BY EAR, AREN’T YOU?”
Lynch, Nebraska – Bass Guitar and Vocals
Jan started 15 years ago. She had no previous experience with a bass guitar. For the first 6 months, she didn’t even know how to tune the bass!!
From Memphis, Tennessee and now lives in Beresford, South Dakota. Joined the Outback Band in October 2016.
