A Little Bit About the Band

The Wahoo Creek Band is a Country/American band that started off as a two man acoustic act in early 2009. Phillip Trammel and Tim Thompson both love original music, but found out quickly that in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Tim Thompsontourist town, they would need to have their share of covers as well. So while you will see an increasing amount of outstanding crowd favorite originals by this band they will also have plenty of well-known covers to keep the crowds dancing and begging for more.

Tim Thompson (Rhythm Guitar/Lead Vocals) has been singing as long as he can remember, and was very active in singing in his church choir, as well as the schools in his home town of Newnan, Georgia a suburb of Atlanta. He quickly learned that most any instrument he picked up could be figured out and played in a matter of days if not sooner. He started playing piano around age 6 and added the drums and saxophone to his list of instruments by age 11. It was when he was 14 that he found a fell in love with the guitar. He was lucky enough to be involved with the Georgia Youth Choral and by 15 was selected to sing with the choir, at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 1994 he was once again able to sing at The Washington National Cathedral in DC.

Phillip Trammel's (Bass Guitar, Guitar, Mandolin) father is one of his biggest musical influences, as a Jazz musician, as well as well-known musician Andy McKee. Phillip started out with music lessons at a very young age, and he has been playing several instruments for over 21 years. He grew up in Rutherfordton, North Carolina and went on to get his Associates in Science as a recording engineer from Full Sail Recording School in 2001. He has worked for some big companies such as Universal Records and Muzak Records and recorded several big names.Phillip Trammel of Wahoo Creek Band

It was early 2009 that Tim contacted Phillip, to hire him and his studio in Myrtle Beach, to record a five song solo album for his friends and family. The two instantly hit it off, and found that they “clicked’ right away when playing, as if they had been playing together for years. Not long after Wahoo Creek was born; and within two months’ time, they had played over 10 shows, and the crowds were growing and loved the show. By summer of 2009 they had plenty of songs and plenty of shows to play.

In October of 2009 the two decided to make it a full band and after several attempts with different drummers they brought in Larry Bullock originally from Bristol, Tennessee to fill the spot on drums. Larry brings to the band a long family history of bluegrass music as well as his own love of rock and country.

The final member added was Dan Junk from Detroit, MI on lead guitar and vocals. Dan has been playing music for well over 30 years; he toured with a big country band for over 13 years Danthroughout the southeast. He brings with him the Saxophone, flute, and lead guitar, and harmony vocals.

Since forming in 2009 the band has been playing over 100 shows a year up and down the Carolina Coast, including for the Myrtle Beach Rocks Concert Series held at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC. They have been featured in multiple newspapers, online, and on the local Myrtle Beach FOX TV show “Not the News” two separate times. In the spring of 2011 the band was nominated for the Country Americana Band of the Year by the Carolina Music Awards Show held annually in Raleigh, NC. They are always friendly and continue to impress and entertain the crowds with their high energy stage shows and great chemistry. If you ever make it out to a show be sure to go speak to them, they always want to meet new fans.
