Watch & Listen
Buck'd Off is a band comprised of the vocal duo of brothers Brian and Darin Husmann (previously known as Momma's Pride). The other members of the band are Brian Block on lead guitar, Kevin Zugschwert on lead guitar, Eli Elrod (aka Animal) on the drums, and Joe Snyder on bass.
While all are accomplished individual performers, it took a tragic event to lead to the group's genesis.
Darin Husmann started performing in music at the age of 10 in the Bismarck All-City Boys' Choir. His true call to music wouldn't find him again until 10 years later. In college, Darin was invited to sing to the Administrative Assistant for the Morning Show on radio station KGLL FM 96.1 "The Eagle", in honor of Secretary's Day. After singing live on the air, the listeners' overwhelming response led the station to form a 14-week segment called the "Make My Day" segment, starring Darin, singing modified cover songs to fit special events. In 1998, he became lead singer in the KGLL FM 96.1 band.
Brian Husmann's accomplishments include: Top 5 National Finalist for the Mickey Mouse Club in the same class as Brittany Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Christina Aguilera; three years performing with the Arvada Actor's Guild; several first place finishes in local and regional singing competitions; and 5 years living and performing in Nashville, TN - at establishments such as Legends Corner, The Stage, and Tootsie's.
In December 2007, their Mother (Sandra Husmann - "Sandy") unexpectedly collapsed at the entrance of the "Mall of America" while Christmas shopping. Darin and Brian caught a red-eye flight to Minneapolis, MN, where Sandy was in Intensive Care. Their Mother was completely unresponsive. When Brian and Darin sang to her, her heart rate increased, and she showed signs of brainwave activity. She continued to live for 2 more days. and Momma's Pride was born.
Sandy never got to see them perform on stage together, so every time they perform, it is in her honor.
- In 2008, Momma's Pride rocked the stage of the world famous "Grizzly Rose" during the NBC audition for the "Nashville Star" television show. They then went on to the National Finals held in Washington D.C., and advanced through two days of cuts, to the final elimination. This put them in the top ten duos in the United States, out of over 50,000 applicants.
- In 2011, 2012, 2014, and 2015 Buck'd Off (Formerly Momma's Pride) won the Nebraska State Championship for the Texaco Country Showdown, the largest country music talent search in America. LeAnne Rhymes, Chris Young, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley all got their start in this competition.
Buck'd Off's ultimate goal is to make an audience smile, and enjoy their greatest passion...singing and playing country music.

Our original works are eclectic blends of blues, rock, folk, country, and a little jazz because, "why not?"

Since switching over to mainstream country from Christian rock, the family band Caballero (established in 2003) has experienced a whirlwind of attention, spinning them into opportunities unfathomable. In the growing city of Evans, Colorado, the band is fronted by Eli Caballero and rounded out by brothers Fernando (Nando) Jr., and Micah, as well as their father Fernando. With all the recent attention, Caballero is on its launching pad to the top.
Caballero has had the privilege of working with some of Nashville’s producers, recording engineers and songwriters. Caballero is currently working with songwriter, producer, recording artist and independent film music director, Randy.
Kicking off the success of the fiery, rock and roll-influenced country sound Caballero brings to every performance was their recent win at a nationally recognized country bar known as the Grizzly Rose of Denver, Colorado. The Grizzly Rose hosted a battle of the bands “Country Throwdown” where Caballero stole the show and walked away big winners. Winning a week as the Rose’s headlining house band, the opening spot for Lee Brice, and the chance to meet with Brad Paisley’s record label representative, the band has not quit striving for further success.
Pushing for more gigs, the band is in the process of recording a demo with well-known producers and engineers in the music industry that will bring brilliance to the band’s already “pitch perfect” sound. In preparation to release the demo, Caballero has already booked several other shows.
The family band’s love for country has personal ties with the cowboy way of life and country culture making the transition easy. The bands unique fusion of country, rock, blues, and 80’s pop, with a gospel music harmony, makes every song different, grasping the attention of many. Caballero rocks the house with their quality vocals, clarity in music and performance, and their “meet everyone” attitude, allowing gigs to roll in.
Under their belt, the band has opened for nationally known artists such as Lee Brice, Chase Rice, A Thousand Horses, Tyler Farr, Randy Montana, Susie McEntire (Reba McEntire’s sister) and Joe Diffy to name a few, as well as playing at the Greeley Stampede, Cheyenne Frontier Days, The Gambler, Grizzly Rose, several benefits and many more. Not quitting there, the band has also toured nation wide and in foreign countries. Adding to their experience, in 2009, the band recorded their first CD as Christian rock band, Lead Me, in Nashville, TN, featuring original songs and covers. In 2010, they released their first single “I Need You” to radio as well.
There’s no stopping this family and their talents. They can handle anything, making it their own while still sounding stellar. With fans craving more, Caballero plans to deliver their spin of country-rockin’ music made to keep any arena grounded in God, Family and Country.
