The Band's History
Sometime in late 1991 or early 1992, DaZsaVoo began
under the name "Almost Human". Gene Nix fronted the band
with his lead vocals and his raucous stage antics. We also had Jimmy Staggs on
lead guitar, James Rediger on bass, Daniel Young on drums, and myself, Patrick
Dillon on keys and rhythm guitar. Jimmy and Daniel left the band, and were
replaced with Robert Cates and Jim Linger. It was time to change the name
of the band. DaZsaVoo was born. We had been
playing at clubs like the "Alcatraz" (now Southside Rock Club),
"Wolf Trap", and the "Alley Club". Over the years, our bass
players changed quite routinely. We lossed Rediger to Craig Wetz. Craig
eventually moved on to some very respectful local bands like "Alter
Ego", "the "Lava Kings", and now with the "Push".
We also have had Marvin Langan, Kelly Wells, Robert Neria, and Kelly
Parson, playing bass for us at one time or another. Our drummers have been just
as "rotational"!! After Daniel Young, we worked with Jim Linger, Jim
Culpepper, Mike Bell, Mike Oleague, and Pat Crossland. We have worked every
club, dive, bar, and more. We played biker rallies, family picnics, and even
opened for a "Blood, Sweat, & Tears" spin-off group in Bricktown.
We worked at the "Alley Club" for many years as a regular act, and a
short stint at the "Samauri", "Liberty D's", and the
"Boar's Head". We have played regularly at "Stroker's",
"Bricktown Charley's", and continue to play for the "Classic Rock
Cafe". Our current band consists of:
Gene Nix - lead vocals and guitar Robert
Cates - lead guitar Patrick Dillon - keys and rhythm
guitar Marvin Langan - bass guitar Forrest
Worrell - drums
Forrest had been with "Counterfiet", "Hard Knocks", and
"Spur of the Moment".
Marvin had previously been with "Mary Ann and the Blue Dogs",
"Some Assembly Required", and of course, DaZsaVoo.
We are just very grateful to have them both with us at this time. We feel
that DaZsaVoo is going to have a huge impact on the local music
scene this year. And we know it couldn't be accomplished without the help of
Marvin and Forrest.
