The Abilene Band – TGIS Free Concert Series

Country music group Abilene debuted in the early 1980s. The band was composed of Herb Humphreys, Keith Taylor, Larry Miller, Jay McKnight and Ray Rhodes.

Abilene travelled the tri-state area while also finding time to record two local hits, You Don’t Need to Need Me Now and Louisiana Feeling. For several years, the band was the opening act for national performers and won a number of ‘Battle of the Bands’ competitions and contests. One win landed them on the stage of ‘Jamboree in the Hills’ in 1984, which led to a performance on the popular Nashville ‘You Can Be A Star’ television show on the CMT Network.

Over the past 30 years, Abilene has shared the stage with such greats as Alabama, Ronnie Milsap, The Statler Brothers, Pure Prairie League, Conway Twitty, Waylon Jennings, Charlie Daniels, Dr. Hook, Eddie Rabbit and The Judds. In recent years, original members Herb, Keith and Larry reunited and welcomed newcomer Tim Burkhart into the group. Randy Rhodes has also returned as the sound engineer for the group.

Enjoy 14 weeks of live music for FREE every Thursday evening from May 30 – September 5. Savor a light bite and a refreshing cocktail in the S&T Bank Courtyard and Megan’s Suite while supporting local talent at The Palace Theatre.
