WHAT kind of music do the SCALLYWAGS play?
​The CLASSIC ROCK we've all grown to love, plus a handful of original songs. Examples include:

Mike Upchurch - vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica, songwriting. Mike ("Fox") has spent 60 years playing guitar and singing, fifteen of those years teaching guitar. One of those students is now a bandmate, Scott. Mike enjoyed working with Scott so much, he said for Scott to just come over every Sunday to practice together. They simply clicked. That was seven or eight years ago. The Pandemic slowed their music making but didn't stop it. One day Mike said, "We'd sound better with a bass player and a drummer." Scott agreed, and a week later a band was born. For more info on Mike go to this site's About Us page.

Scott Beliveau- vocals, lead guitar, songwriting. Scott ("Scooter") began playing guitar at age 15 when he got his first electric guitar. His main influences in music (Doobie Bros., Beatles, Rolling Stones, Joe Cocker, Allman Bros., Van Morrison, The Doors, etc.) came from his father and uncle playing the oldies in their band together. Shortly thereafter, Scott, his brother, and friends formed a band (The Gray Area) which played mostly 60s, 70s, and 80s Rock and Roll. Scott primarily played rhythm guitar. That band took first place in their high school talent contest two years in a row, and soon afterward they started playing small, local shows. 
About four years later that band fizzled. Scott played guitar off and on for the next 20 years. About 2016-2017 Scott realized how much he missed playing guitar and called Mike ("Fox") to brush up on his guitar skills. After a month or so of lessons, he and Mike started regular Sunday jam sessions and building set lists of their favorites. They were having a blast working together.

WHO are The Scallywags?

Dave Hebert- bass guitar and vocals. Dave ("Davy") has been playing guitar and bass since the early 70's, off and on. He cites his major influences as the blues, Bob Dylan, Crosby-Stills-Nash-Young, Van Morrison, ZZ Top, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Dave has played with several people informally before moving to New Bern in 2016. Since arriving in New Bern he has played  with several bands that sparked his interest to improve his style. He just bought a Fender SIX string bass, a vintage bass reissue, and is loving the variety of tones he gets from it.
