Modern Gypsy Rock

Southern rock married classic country and had a grunge baby…it’s kinda like that

Hi, my name is Bubba Startz. I have performed thousands of shows over the last 20 years of playing music professionally. I play something from every genre and era of music and have a great talent for identifying the demographics of the crowd and finding the songs we know that will connect with them. I’m not coming to your bar/event to tell your patrons what they should like. I would much rather put the effort into finding what they enjoy and really focusing on everyone having the best time possible. That being said, we are always promoting and playing our original music which we release independently. You can find us on Spotify, YouTube, and wherever else you find music online.

I have played in the smallest of bars to the biggest stages throughout the United States and internationally in that time. I always travel with my wife and fellow band mate Danielle. She doesn’t perform with me but rather adds to the show by controlling the vibe from start to finish. We don’t just throw a random playlist on during breaks or at the end of a great night. We keep people on the dance floor from start to finish and sometimes these moments become the best parts of the show. We take a lot of pride in making memories with all of our fans and every show is just as important to us as the next.

We use professional sound and light equipment capable of doing rooms up to 200 people. Larger than that and I would need outside production hired. We provide everything we need to do our thing. We just need 4 circuits and 4-8 plugins. We travel as light as possible to cut costs for our customers and we assure that our rates are comparable to similar acts to us who tour throughout our region.

Startz and Endz has been my life’s work. A roadhouse band if there ever was one. We know exactly how to get the party started and keep it going all night with high energy renditions of songs from classic artists like Tom Petty, Brooks and Dunn, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Johnny Cash, Lynard Skynard, Sublime, the Talking Heads and more.

But its our original works that keep fans coming back. Drawing influences from musicians and cultures around the world the songs are like leaves of paper in your teenage journal. There is familiarity with the stories and the music instantly, as you can see yourself in my shoes. 10-13-23 we released our first single, Rise Up, onto all streaming platforms accompanied by a full length music video and subsequent tour.

We had a really fortunate summer with appearances in Sioux Falls, Yankton, Historic Deadwood and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. We were featured at the Four Winds Music Festival, Music at the Meridian and the Levitt at the Falls Summer Concert Series, Dakota Showdown Horse Trainer Challenge, The Marquee (Sioux City), Downtown Friday Nights (Mitchell), and I also sing the National Anthem for sports/events. We ended the year with our friend Rowan Grace (the Voice) and we are starting our year collaborating with 3X Native Amercian Music Award winner, Night Shield on a show February 3rd at Fort Randall Casino in Lake Andes, SD. Our summer is already filling up with gigs in 5 states, breaking onto larger stages and festivals all over the region. Call today to reserve a date for 2024!!
