Floyd Adams said listening to The Timekiller Band is a unique experience because of the three-part harmony they use in their songs.
“In a lot of newer music, you just have one person singing lead,” Adams said. “We switch it up, and we have the tenor and the baritone singing at the same time. It gives it a different sound, and people seem to love it.”
The Timekiller Band sings old-time gospel and country music, with songs in their repertoire from the likes of Merle Haggard, George Strait and Alan Jackson. They are taking that sound to the Wagoner Civic Center at 7 p.m. Saturday.
Adams said the band started two years ago in his metal shop out by Lake Tenkiller.
They wanted a clever name that also helped identify their origins. One of them mentioned they killed a lot of time jamming in that building, and The Timekiller Band was born.
“We love to entertain,” Adams said. “We’ll do a little comedy, and we want people to dance if there is room. This is the music we were raised on, and we enjoy making it available for others.”
The show will cost $8 at the door, and will last approximately 2-2 1/2 hours. The band does have a CD that they recorded inside their shop, but they are working on a professional recording.
Adams said the band was born after several jam sessions, when the requests to play at events and parties started rolling in.
“We’re in it for the love of the music,” Adams said. “Going out and living in a bus and touring the nation isn’t exactly our cup of tea. We don’t have dreams of grandeur, we just want to play the music people love.”
