What separates an act that is successful from one that isn't? Great songs... An original sound... A highly entertaining live show... And a collection of spicy characters that keep people coming back for more. Combing the sounds of Rock and Country, Dry County is... Where AC/DC Meets Alabama...

Dry County has graced the pages of country music publications and newspapers and broken through the barriers at the country music festivals, selling out clubs throughout the province. With the help of their 200 plus boosters (who charter buses wherever and whenever Dry County plays) helped Dry County end 2004 with an Ontario Country Music award nomination for Club Artist of The Year. The only all original act to do so.

Originally formed in 1998 after shared decades on the bar and festival circuit, Dry County has been kicking ass and taking names all across Southern Ontario. Their 2002 self-titled debut CD landed 5 songs on over 50 radio stations nationwide and have been included in live to air interviews as feature artists

Fronted by singer/songwriter Jeff Gallagher, the flamboyant bad boy of the group with 14 years of playing experience, he is not only Dry County’s primary songwriter, but he also writes for many other artists as well.

Producer/lead guitarist Randy Solski is a 15-year veteran of the music business with an endless list of credentials. Randy is a graduate of Fanshawe College’s Music Industry Arts Sound Engineering Program with a post grad in Digital Applications. He is also recognized as one of the top drummers in the area winning first place in two categories at the American Guild of Music drum competition. Since opening his recording studio in 1998, he has Sony Music, EMI, Universal and Epic records credits to his name.

Keyboardist Don Laframboise, bass player Keith Silver and drummer Uncle Dik come from a combined 40 plus years of touring experience as session players for various recording artists. They are not only fan favorites, but are the intangible soul of the Dry County sound.

With their latest release, ""Waitin' On Hank"", Dry County continues to gain attention and impress legions of fans all over proving that this tough as nails act will always show that the edge, attitude and heart in their music has come by honestly.

Waitin On Hank
A musical release of personal frustration and resentment towards the lack of truth, tradition and attitude that country music was built upon. It is directly aimed at industry who would rather grab the next 'Idol" contest winner with a pretty face, hook them up with typical Nashville song writers and spit out the next cookie cutter single and ride the wave until the next contest. The evolution of music has taught us that styles and sounds in any genre will change. But lately,the country
