It's been a while since we've put anything on our website...We've become more of The Dale Inskeep Band than anything you might consider 'solo'...We're heading back to Austin and Wimberley Texas for a short trip to visit friends and play music. We try and keep things current on our Facebook page...Check it out and let us share our music with you! The Dale Inskeep Band

We appreciate all the support and all our regular and facebook fans...y'all rock!

Happy New Year to everyone. Thanks to the great crowd at The High Tide Cafe for our New Year's Eve gig and to all the great folks up and down the Oregon Coast for our little tour last week. Every place we played we had a great time and the people were great. Thanks for listening and cheers to a great 2010!

Surf Country Genre or Americana...a definition?
December 12, 2009
We've coined the term, 'Surf Country/Americana' to describe our music. The style we play is hard to pigeon hole into a category. Last month when I was in the Austin, Texas area, I picked up one of several great magazines that are published in Texas about music, particularly Texas music. In the magazine, "The MusicFest Magazine" that is getting folks primed for the great music festival in Steamboat Springs, Colorado to kick off the new year January 4th -9th, it had an article that was talking about 'Americana' music. The article was written by Al Moss and I'll share some of his words here to help folks understand the challenges of labeling music.
"One thing that seems to be quite predominant in the world of Americana music is that the artists more often than not write a significant amount of their music, as opposed to the more mainstream world in which many artists record music written by 'outside' writers. Also the majority of successful Americana artists perform live on a regular basis. Addistionally, Americana music is that it is genreally more organic than the more mainstream/pop music world...
Even then, what Americana is to me or to anyone else is going to differ. The same goes for the radio world; what Americana is will differ from station to station based on regionalism, listeners' expectations, as well as to the station programmer's determination from each album (whether or not the music fits their mental idea of the sound they have in mnd for their station). Duke Ellington once said that there are two kinds of music - "good music and bad music." Much of Americana falls under the good category. Ultimately, what is or isn't Americana is really decided by the listener."
I hope this helps explain why we call our music, 'Surf Country/Americana.'

Rainy Day Parade
September 21, 2009
We had a great time at the Fun Festival even with the rain. David wrote a new song, called 'Rainy Day Parade' that captures the Fun Festival in its Coos Bay style. We'll play it soon. Thanks to all who came on down.
We are finally getting the new CD, Three Hands on the Wheel, into production and should have it available by the end of October. We'll have a CD release concert so look for the calendar soon.

February 13, 2009
I just got hooked up on facebook...I have to admit, I had a blast looking up friends from the past and the present.
Also, I want to thank the great guys who have been playing in The Dale Inskeep Band. David Ford has been incredible on electric guitar. Fred Corbett and Bill Berrian both are great bass players. Tom Beckstrom and Mike Carrillo are both insane on the drums. What an honor it is to have these great musicians to play with...Thanks guys...y'all rock!
We've got the final mix on the new album and have been really digging it. We're a bit slow on the art/cover/etc...but we'll have it figured soon, then keep you posted when it will be released. I know you'll love it!
Thanks for all the support!

Sunshine, Sunshine, Sunshine!
January 21, 2009
The weather has been incredible here on the South Coast of Oregon. With so much of the country freezing, it's been extra nice to have sunny days in the 60's.
Tomorrow night is Carmen's last time playing with us for some time. He is off to India, then to Alaska and we wish him the best on his travels.
Fred Corbett, who is an incredible bass and banjo player, will be joining us next week. I have always respected Fred's ability and professionalism and look forward to playing music with him in the future.
Thanks to everyone who has been coming down on Thursday evenings at the High Tide...there is a special menu for Thursday nights and we always have a great time. I hope to see you soon!
