The Scones (Rick Stockton, Helen Highwater, Harry Knipe, and Tim Veazey), perform a souped up, high energy music called “Rockin’ Rollin’ Americana which implies big beat, glorious harmonies, acoustic guitar gymnastics, and a lively stage show. Covering songs from rock’s heyday along with their award winning originals the band is infectiously danceable. The Scones have shared the stage with Joe Cocker, The Subdudes, Lyle Lovett, John Cowan (of the New Grass Revival), and many more, and they have just recruited renowned keyboardist, singer and songwriter Tim Veazey (http://timveazey.com). Tim has performed for everyone from the late Princess Margaret to Ted Turner and with everyone from Pete Fountain to Dickey Betts of The Allman Brothers. He has toured internationally, playing piano & keyboards and singing backup vocals for such stars as Crystal Gayle, Rita Coolidge, Doug Stone, Earl Thomas Conley, Billy Joe Royal and Sonny Turner (of The Platters). The Scones put on a powerhouse live show that will please just about any audience and put smiles on many faces.

The Scones have toured widely throughout the US pleasing audiences with their high energy stage performance, award winning originals, and their take on rock classics. You’ll be pulled in by the magic and musical world the band creates and you’ll end up in the moment, humming & buzzing with the rest of the crowd. Vintage Guitar Magazine lauds The Scones as having “first class guitar work and glorious harmonies. The San Antonio Express News states “The Scones have a top flight songwriter”.
