KEITH’S RETIREMENT PARTY/GIG – NOV. 21ST 2014

It is with sad but full hearts that we announce Keith Cornelius, our wild and crazy bass guitarist and vocalist, needs to retire from active Wheezetones duty for health reasons. (No, he’s not dying – he just can’t do the band any longer)

Because of that, we want to send him out in style. Keith’s last regular night with The Wheezetones will be Friday, November 21st at Duggan’s Pub.

Come on down to wish him well at his retirement party!

Bring your cameras and phones and take a ton of photos so we can make an online tribute to TEN GREAT YEARS TOGETHER!

We love Keith and will miss having him play with us on a regular basis.

The Music

When three guitar playing friends got together to perform a few songs back in 1991, little did they know their trio would evolve into something much bigger. 20+ years later Paul Burner, Doug Dickeson, and John Ballew are still making music. And, along with the addition of Bob Creager (drums), Keith Cornelius (bass), and Ted Larson (sax/keyboards), The Wheezetones have definitely won the hearts of Lincoln, Nebraska – being voted Lincoln’s #1 Cover Band in the Lincoln Journal-Star’s Music Madness contest (2011).

  • Musical DNA

    We call it musical DNA.  It’s the term we use for a song we just instinctively know the first time we play it. We know instantly that it is a song we were meant to do.

  • 21 Years of Music

    We started this adventure in 1992 as 3 guys on acoustic guitars.  We’re now a 6-piece dance band with more equipment than talent.  One night a week – one gig a month. After 21 years you sorta end up as brothers.  Let the sibling fighting begin!

  • Early Shows for Old Men!

    You’ll typically find us at Duggan’s Pub in Lincoln NE one Friday a month.  We start early – 6:30PM to be exact.  We’re old and we want to get home before midnight, but that doesn’t stop us from rockin’ the house as hard as we want.
