Music was always a hobby for Teka Brock until 2005 when she recorded her first five songs with legendary producer James William Guercio in Nashville, Tennessee. She could only find time to do so in-between breaks from her job at a coal mine in Decker, Montana. Prior to then, Teka had concentrated mainly on competing regionally at rodeos in Montana, Wyoming and the surrounding states. For most of her life, she had opened the rodeos by singing the National Anthem, including both the National High School Finals Rodeo and the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Finals. Both of which, she took home Reserve Champion in Goat Tying.
Teka was born to sing, and for years she had been looking for musicians who wanted to play the type of music she wanted to perform—country with a splash of southern rock and a twist of bluegrass. The band’s formation followed a route unique to Wyoming. Tom Lulias met Teka at a branding and offered to duet with her on Dobro at her first gig on the stage of the WYO Theater. Within just a few weeks the original band members fell into line.
The starting lineup features Teka on guitar and vocals, Fred Serna on drums, Lulias on steel and dobro, Jarod Judd on bass and Aaron Ashear on lead guitar. Each member of the TBB find a place to call home somewhere between Parkman and Buffalo, Wyoming. The TBB’s latest release, “307” (2012), has been gathering interest long before the November release due to the band teasing fans with tidbits from the new album during live performances.
Since formation of the band in 2008, the Teka Brock Band have opened for such acts as Blake Shelton, Lonestar, the Eli Young Band, Joe Diffie, Bucky Covington, Chuck Wicks and Jalan Crossland. Teka was recently featured with Ronda Vincent and the Rage at The WYO Theater in Sheridan, Wyoming for a duet performance on a couple mutual favorites. The TBB have played venues such as, Headwaters Country Jam, Nowoodstock Music Festival, The Mangy Moose, The Wild Horse Saloon, Wrecker’s Roadhouse, Montana Chad’s, The WYO Theater, The Cowboy Saloon, The Beacon Club and Toad Tavern.
The Teka Brock Band would like to thank C&K Equipment Company, Anheuser-Busch and Big Horn Beverage for all of their continued support.
