A Tamworth Local, Jared Scott (aka The Bitch of Pitch) has been building a name for himself among the Country Music industry in recent years. An accomplished Vocalist, Guitarist, and Songwriter, he has a very bright future ahead of him. Taking influence from Artists like Merle Haggard, Keith Urban & Troy Cassar-Daley he has developed his own brand of country that will please the ear of any listener, modern fans and traditionalists alike.

Involved in country music from a young age, Jared developed a keen interest in the guitar, taking up playing at the age of 11.
Jared spent most of his teen years performing in talent quests around the eastern states, attending the Tamworth “Camerata” (now known as the CMAA Junior Academy of Country Music) in 2003, ‘05 & ‘06.
Jared began playing in pubs and clubs at age 17 and soon found himself becoming a regular fixture in venues across his home state of NSW along with younger brother Rowan in his band “Route 67”

Jared has featured in many bands over the past few years as both a frontman and guitarist.

During his time with Redneck Gentlemen, Jared has continued working as a solo artist, having the opportunity to support acts among the likes of James Blundell, Adam Harvey, The Sunny Cowgirls Adam Eckersley Band and Thirsty Merc.

Aka “Fatman”.

John started his professional career at the age of 16 with a scholarship as a trumpet player in the Royal Australian Navy where he gained a Bachelor of Music. He left the navy after 6 years to pursue a career as a performing musician in cover and original bands.

John toured Australia supporting such acts as John Farnham, Pseudo Echo, and Choirboys.

During this time he formed his own band called “Fatman Don’t Dance” which became very popular throughout the Club, Hotel and B&S ball scene, touring through NT, Queensland, & WA supporting acts such as Mental As Anything, Troy Cassar-Daley plus many more.

In 2006, he built a professional recording studio called “Fattrack Studios” in Tamworth, which is currently recording artists both local and from around Australia.

Rob Bennic aka “Prince of pound, king of heavy artillery“ started playing the drums at the age of 7 when tutored by a Sydney session player. 
Throughout his school days in Tamworth, he played in marching bands, school rock and concert bands. In his late teen years, Rob played in bands in the Tamworth area with mates and the odd fill-in gig. 

After going on a traveling hiatus for a number of years Rob got the kit out again and got back into practicing chops. Soon he formed the band “Shift” with the talented Allison Forbes and local guitarist Mark Pauling playing rock cover gigs all over the northwest.

Venturing into a more bluesy country feel, Sally Ann Whitten and Rob formed “*10#”. Members included Steve McCauley and Trev Stacey, gigging the northwest festivals and B&S‘s.
Col Finley was on the hunt for a drummer at the time and Rob took on that role, traveling Australia and the USA playing festivals, etc.

After a number of years of playing he decided to pull back on the travel and with local mate and future fellow Redneck, Bassist John Lee formed “Crazytrain” with Stuey Larkham on guitar playing heavy 70/80s rock covers having a great following and still going after 10 years .

Rob, John Lee and mate Jared Scott formed “Redneck Gentlemen” and gave their twist ‘n feel to the country that they like and the journey is still continuing!!!!
