Biography

Oak Ridge TN, United States (1983 – present)

Boys’ Night Out (BNO) was organized in 1983, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, with the goal of recreating the authentic performances of the rhythm and blues (R&B) music that had been extremely popular with teenagers in the south during the late 1960s. Boys’ Night Out’s first public performance was at the Oak Ridge Azalea Festival on May 5, 1984, and they have played a busy schedule ever since.

Between 1984 and 1987, several band members came and went until a stable configuration of personalities and artistic focus could be established. During those formative years, the band adopted three simple operational constraints:

BNO is strictly an R&B/Beach band; they don’t play country, they don’t play Top 40, they don’t play disco.

Despite owning a vast amount of equipment needed to deliver professional-quality performances, BNO is a hobby band. Band members, who all have full-time day jobs, include business owners, engineers, physicists, lawyers, college professors, and consultants. Many of the band’s bookings are for special community events or charity fund raisers. To ensure that it doesn’t become a full-time job, the band limits performances to twice a month.

Membership is primarily contingent on a personal commitment to R&B and Beach music and getting onboard with the BNO philosophy (i.e., “We’re doing this for fun, and we play because we love the music.”).Band members include C. Vaughn Leslie on lead vocals, Rick Carl and Hugh Nichols on trumpet, Don Batchelor on trombone, Ed Winebarger and Larry Bray on tenor sax, Bruce Giles on baritone sax, Clint Eskew on keyboards, Jeff Ginsburg on guitar, Jake Alexander on bass guitar, and Rich Neubert on drums.
