---------------------------------

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

Abilene traveled 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 sound engineer for the group.
