Dave Innis is an accomplished keyboardist, vocalist, and original member of the critically-acclaimed vocal group, Restless Heart, Paul Gregg is a talented bass player and vocalist, and is also an original member of restless heart. Both are recent inductees into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame. The band Restless Heart heralds six Grammy nominations, five CMA nominations, as well as winning the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year Award, and obtaining five riaa certified gold records on rca.
Dave and Paul’s latest project, The Okies, is a powerhouse duo featuring the music of Restless Heart…deep cuts, fan requests, and hits with new musical treatments, combined with colorful stories from behind the scenes. The Okies are excited to share the stage with select special guest stars, including fellow Oklahoman Heath Wright of Ricochet fame, and Miami, OK native Keith Anderson, where they can combine talents and play each other’s hits, along with new music.
Says Innis, “THE OKIES started as an idea that sprung from years of fan requests…Paul and I wanted a way to give back to our incredible fans and share a more intimate look into our lives, sing the songs that they have asked to hear in our shows, and to give them the backstory on 35 years of friendship and music. We thought it would be really cool to feature some of our talented artist friends (Okies and others), SO you get their hits, along with fresh takes on our hits, plus deep cuts, and new music. Ideally, that’s what we’ve done with The Okies, created an original, immersive musical event.”
Dave and Paul are both based in the Nashville area and continue to write, sing, tour, and perform regularly. For more information on booking The Okies, visit buddyleeattractions.com.
