Beau Renfro: Home
*** Come see us at the Maverick on Thursday March 13th ***and March 22nd***
Hello to all my friends who, for the last few years, have came to hear us at all the many places we have played. Some of the roads have been long but you came anyway. Many of you have stayed till the last song and I thank you for that. You've followed us to Tombstone, Sierra Vista, Tubac, Globe, Rio Rico and some have came even to Tucson. I just wanted to say thanks. Thanks for being there and thanks for all your help. You have made the Clear Country Band #1. You have invited your friends to come and listen to us and you have told Club owners to hire us. One of our friends even told a big party to hire us or thy would not coming to the party. What a great fan.
But now its time to say goodbye, even as bad as I hate to say it, it must happen. My Wife and I are moving far away and its time to hang up the old Guitar and pick up my fishing pole and enjoy the rest of our live just having fun. Hope you have enjoyed the ride as much as I have. If you have my job is done.
For many years I have had the best group of band mates to play with, I am very proud of that. If I told them we were playing in the meddle of nowhere, one would ask what time? Rick, Harry and Mickey were always there.
So I would only ask one thing that you would give my band a shoot as the band adds another player. Wait one more thing, on March the 27th come see this old Cowboy ride away for the last time at the Maverick, or if you can't be there we'll do it again the every next night at Wild Bill's Hope to see you there.
Beau Renfro is a Entertainer, Song Writer, Singer, Music man or just an all around good ole' boy ,who had just as soon be fishing or hunting as anything else. Beau's music career started like a lot of Country Singers, in a church in Northeast Arkansas. That is where he learned how to sing by listening to his Mother and Sisters sing those good old Gospel songs. All of his eleven Sisters had a big part in the way Beau entertains today. His Sister Jean paid for his first guitar and sisters Lou, Joyce, Naomi and Helen made sure he paid attention as they worked out the songs for Sunday service. Beau was always around the radio when the music was on and listening to the great sounds out of Nashville. From Little Jimmy Dickens to Ernest Tubb and later hearing Faron Young and Marty Robbins.
After moving to East Texas at a early age, Beau formed a Country Band called Beau & the Bandits. While working at a Radio Station (Kroz) as the morning DJ, he played his music at night in some of Texas' most famous night clubs. From the Sawmill Club to the Oil Palace and from The Rio to The Tropicana. Working each night with his five piece band. Hired also to back many of the Country Stars out of Nashville, T.G. Shepard, Moe Bandy, Jerry Reed, Charlie Rich, Faron Young and Joe Stampley. On one of those nights he had a chance meeting with David Houston when David and his manager Tillman Franks ask Beau to join David's Band and work the road. This gave way to Beau opening all the shows for Houston and playing the Famed Grand Ole' Opry. David gave Beau a slot in the show to sing one of his songs. After the show Tillman took him to meet Billy Deaton and upon word from Tillman, Billy signed Beau to a contract and in 1976 his first album produced by Billy Deaton hit the radio stations worldwide. There's No More Gold, Beau's first release was the pic-hit-of the week for Billboard Magazine, and went to #85 on the Country Charts.
Beau took on a new job, working for Cedarwood Pub. Co. in Nashville. Pushing songs by some of Nashville's best writers. At a meeting with Jim Denny and A&R Man John Westley he pitched the song Red Wine to Epic Records. The song went to #5 for Joe Stampley After his first Album Beau fall off the charts so he went back to Texas to work again in those nightclubs that once brought him attention. Texas music was home to Beau, but the road was taking him away from his family. So Beau called up another old friend. Bill Endsley. After many phone calls and a meeting or two Beau was hired to M.C. the famed Ozark Jubilee in Banson,MO. The show played about 200 dates a year But he still had no time for wife Brenda and Kids. So he was pulled once again from the music he loved and a family he loved more.
Beau and his Family moved to Tucson Arizona in favor of hanging up his Cowboy Hat and getting a real job. After a few years of working in the car business Beau meet Jerry McCreary who loved his music and began pushing Beau to write more songs and play music again in the Clubs and Casino's. Beau Renfro and his Clear Country Band was formed in Tucson with Rick Skinner, Harry Bolin and newest member Mickey Gee . The band has been together for a long time now and thy are one of the hottest bands that entertain at Clubs, Casino's, R.V. Parks and running the road again from Tucson to Texas and all points in between. Beau is proud of the band he works with now, and it shows in the music they play.
