Alt-country/americana band from Philadelphia, PA.
Jim Mitchell & The Repeat Offenders
Jim Mitchell & The Repeat Offenders
Outlaw band of musical gypsies with a killer live show!
Whether blazing thru guitar and steel guitar solos on ORIGINAL country rock songs or bringing it all home on a traditional country ballad these guys can flat git it!

Led by outlaw country singer Jim Mitchell, the Repeat Offenders come from very different musical backgrounds. From country and bluegrass, to southern rock and rockabilly, and in and out of the Nashville and L.A. music scenes for years, the band is known for its vocals and musicianship. After working with many country superstars Jim Mitchell and The Repeat Offenders released their debut album titled “HELLRAISIN’ SON” in late 2006. The band has a loyal following of country, rock, and blues fans throughout the atlantic states region that support the live performances while the internet has allowed for the band’s music to be heard and enjoyed around the world.

Along with the bands original compositions they also draw freely from the old school country and rock n roll world, but Jim Mitchell and The Repeat Offenders are no throwback. The band is a progressive hybrid that calls their sound Rock N Tonk. They are uninhibited and unpredictable, drawing from a wide range of musical backgrounds.

Today the band has matured and toned down it’s rambunctious and misdemeanoring ways of the past and are concentrating more on the music and writing, and are sounding better than ever. With a smokin’ live show and their new album ‘I Wanna Be Free’ set for a 2013 release it looks like 2013 will be a great year for this band of honky tonk survivors

The Repeat Offenders have shared the stage with many country superstars including Marty Stuart, Brooks and Dunn, and John Michael Montgomery, just to name a few. As well as rock and blues acts like The Gin Blossoms and Jeff Healey. The Repeat Offenders are Jim Mitchell on vocals and guitar, Ray Roller on lead guitar, Jack Stanton on steel guitar, Tony Focia on bass, and Luke Carmen on drums.

After a long hiatus from writing and performing music Singer/Songwriter/Producer/Artist Lance Davis (GRADY HOSS, LATEBLOOM, Shelton Davis, For Souls on Fire) decided in 2012 to start revisiting some classic country music as a way to connect with his then 81 year old father (rest in peace) who had been struggling with the mind crippling disease... Alzheimers.

As a kid Lance grew up in the country primarily listening to Heavy Metal/rock/alt music but always heard the sounds of Waylon, Willie, Cash, George and Emmy Lou coming from his parents car radios, home stereos or on a small radio on the back porch. After a several year hiatus from writing he started writing again in the winter of 2013/2014 after he ended a long term relationship and bought an old vintage arch top guitar. He had no intentions but to just simply write from a therapeutic standpoint. "I learned so much about myself from writing these country songs. One major thing I learned was how effortless it was for these songs to come out of me. It made me realize how ingrained this music is in my veins. This isn't to say I'll always write country music but it's just liberating to discover this at this point in my life." Finally a couple of buddies (which eventually became his band) convinced him to get in the studio and record the songs. Since this was all a tribute to his father (a Johnny Cash era southern military man from North Carolina) he remembered stories involving his dad's childhood friends in which all had classic, traditional, old fashioned southern names like Zeb Limeberry and Mutt Pondexter. "I always took notice of the old Nashville session players/artists that had fantastic NAMES like Buddy Emmons, Buck Owens and Floyd Tillman. They all sounded so classic and riddled with character. So when the band came together I demanded 2 things from everyone 1. KEEP IT FUN and 2. Everyone needs a classic country nickname that we all must refer to each other by...a stage name if you will. So I introduce you to the band:

Bucky Vennerson (Vince Federici): guitar

Dusty Reign (Dan O'neil): bass

Earl Smokesman (Charlie Heim): drums.

Jebediah Barnswallow (Dave Van Allen): Pedal Steel guitar


The name GRADY HOSS AND THE SIDEWINDERS was also inspired by his dad. "Grady" is his dad's middle name. "Hoss" is an old school southern term of endearment used in a similar fashion as "bro". "When I was a kid my father's friends including my favorite Uncle Pete (my mom's brother), used to call him "Hoss"...I used to get the biggest kick out of it! The band's name "The Sidewinders" comes from my dad's CB handle in the 70's back when he had his 1972 GMC pickup truck. He also had an airbrushed logo on the side of the truck that was a Texas rattlesnake with a cowboy hat...The Sidewinder.
