RebelKuz #2470. Co B 2nd Bn 2nd Plt 1st Squad

A good name for this report is March madness. Things have sure changed over the last month as far

 as how we are living day-to-day. There is a shutdown of restaurants and businesses due to the virus.

Stores are empty. I hope we get back to normal soon. We had a meeting of 1st and 3rd squads at

Yankee Tom's 3/8/20. The squads discussed the upcoming calendar of events. Capt Ray Easter of VA was

a guest for our meeting. We patched in a new member John Simmons. Camp 803

Gen NB Forrest did our highway cleanup in Moncure, NC.

 We had camp members, OCR, and Mech Cav participating.

One of the ways the SCV gives back to our community. The SCV/OCR Disaster Relief is preparing a response

 to those devastated by the recent tornadoes in Tennessee. They are planning to leave on the 20th.

 Our own Sgt Jeff Roberts heads this up. We met with members of 2nd squad at the Sports Zone for a meeting on

 March 14th. The discussion covers upcoming events. We are looking forward to a full calendar this year

Biography

Jack Steven Dempsey, a true troubadour, started his musical journey as bassist for Georgia Piedmont Blues singer

Eugene “Buddy” Moss and as roadie for Capricorn Southern Rockers Eric Quincy Tate.

Later he joined and recorded with The Rose Hill Band a country rock group signed with The Lowery Group in Atlanta, GA.

While still in Georgia, Jack worked with Wayne Bear Sauls in The Bear Facts Band and The Gibson All Star Blues Band

leading to gigs with David Alan Coe and touring with Hank Williams Jr., Willie Nelson and Neil Young.

Jack began recording with singer/drummer Donnie McCormick (EQT) and Larry Bowie (The Backalley Bandits)

 at Bellingrath Studio in Atlanta, GA. Donnie’s album, Hell Of A Note, not only had Jack playing on 5 cuts but one

of his songs, Your Fool Again, was recorded as well. Jack signed with Music From Bellingrath (BMI) as a writer and began recording his songs each

time he was in Atlanta.

When Outlaw music cooled down in Atlanta,Jack saddled up and moved West. Working mostly in the horse business

and booked by Cindy Olsen of Sight n Sound Austin, Texas, Jack made a living in the honkytonks and on the ranches of the west.

 He joined Jace n Lee as bassist and recorded an album, These Colors, which included Cherokee Rose, one of Jack’s popular songs.

 Some of the nightclubs Jack worked on the western circuit are the Outlaw Saloon in Cheyenne, Wyoming, The Caravan in Albuquerque,

 Cactus Pete’s in Jackpot, Nevada, The Million Dollar Cowboy in Jackson, Wyoming, the Lonesome Dove in Bismarck, North Dakota,

 The Beacon in Casper, Wyoming, The Win Place Show in Ruidoso, New Mexico and

the Inn of the Mountain Gods in Mescalero to name a few.


Based out of Navajo Nation, New Mexico, where he lives with his wife Lena, Jack found the Rez bands to be a natural

for Song Rider. In Navajo Land, an area the size of Great Britain, Song Rider worked with The 191 Band, The Fenders II,

 Twang Deluxe and Sage Bond.Jack says, ”I love working the Rez where Waylon is still the King. It doesn’t matter what is going

 on in the rest of the world, Gary Stewart still rules out here.” During this time he also wrote and finished songs for The Dark Wind CD.

For the past two years, Song Rider has been touring bassist and musical translator for

Waylon’s grandson, Whey Jennings, and his band the Unwanted.
