We hail from Tennessee, the endless plains and rolling hills run deep in our music. We sing songs of freedom and love. We make music to bring people together to share and embrace the sunset limited, to help you escape from the petty paced seconds and minutes that inevitably count us all down. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer, we have been doing it for many a sunrises and hope to do it for many more. The Django Riders are a blues/folk rock band that consists of singer/songwriter and former Oblivious Humans front man Jay Cathcart. On lead guitar is Tim Cathcart who early in his career spent time opening for the likes of Merle Haggard & Janie Fricke and perfecting his craft. The drums are left to none other than the multi talented Josh Gentry who has spent his days playing with many different rock bands and church groups. Bass player Chuck Radin has been playing and touring with his self titled band Radin for some time and continues to expand and add to our music.
