New Member for the Tim Clark Band
Sunday, November 24 2019

November 24, 2019 - Logo property of the Tim Clark Band

In a Facebook post earlier tonight, Wyatt Thomas (current bassist for Lee's Cut) announced that starting in 2020 he will be the new bassist for the Tim Clark Band. We had the opportunity to see them live during Cammy weekend at the Spanish Galleon in N. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and they didn't disappoint. We also had the pleasure of seeing Wyatt as he was filling in at the Farm at 42 with Blackwater during the Fall Breeze event. We can't wait to hear the band with Wyatt and we congratulate him and wish him nothing but the best. For those who may not know Wyatt, is the son of Dan Thomas, drummer for Gary Lowder and Smokin' Hot. Congratulations Wyatt!
