The Has Beens and Friends
The Has Beens are four of the original members of the famed Stillwater band and one original member of the Doc Holliday Band. Back in 1972 while in high school in Warner Robins, Sebie Lacey , Rob Walker, Eddie Stone and Mike Causey were performing together in a group called “Highway.” Another local and well-known musician, bassist and vocalist Al Scarborugh was also performing in the Warner Robins music scene.
They formed the group Stillwater in 1973 and soon after the band got a recording contract with Capricorn Records in Macon, releasing two albums; Stillwater in 1977 and I Reserve the Right in 1978. “Mind Bender,” reached No. 46 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February of 1978. After 10 years of performing, Stillwater broke up. Members of the band continued to perform and showcase their musical talents throughout the Middle Georgia area.
Sometime back in the ’90s , the Has Beens were formed. Members were four of the original members of Stillwater; Sebie Lacey (drums and lead vocals), Rob Walker (lead guitar and vocals), Al Scarborough (bass and lead vocals), Mike Causey (lead guitar and vocals) and one original member of the Doc Holliday Band, Eddie Stone ( keyboards, guitar and lead vocals).
These talented musicians love to perform and to this day are still very best friends.
The members of Tres Hombres are excellent musicians and play multiple instruments. However, they are mostly known for their excellent three-part harmony.
The band originally consisted of three members, Ronald “RJ” Johnson, his younger brother Robert “Bob” Johnson and Tony Elmore. Dave McArel joined lateras drummer. RJ, Bob and Tony have been playing the Warner Robins/Macon area for more than 40 years with groups such as White Hall, the Sugar Creek Band and the Plum Tuckered Band. Dave McArel played in the US Air Force band for 20 years and retired in the Middle Georgia area, where he has played with numerous groups, including the Wall and Big Mike and the Booty Papas.
The Sugar Creek Band had some local success in 1980 with a song played on the local country stations for several months, “Faded Love.” The band went on to record an album. Shortly after the band members went in different directions, but reunited years later.
