Jeff and Jary Vermeys make up the heart of Over the Border Band, a veteran Country Band from Battle Creek.
Their debut release of songs written by Jeff is available through iTunes, GooglePlay and many other digital retailers.
You can also get a physical CD available online or hand delivered by the Vermeys,” said Scott Webb of Jackson, Neb., the CD producer.
They grew up playing with their Dad, who passed away a few years ago.
The Band originated in the mid 80’s playing all over Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota. Highlights of the band was playing on the same stage with Hank jr., Dwight Yoakam, several 70’s rock legends.
That experience has made them versatile on almost any instrument but on stage they stick to their guitars and swapping lead and harmony vocals.
With the help of engineer/keyboardist/producer Scott Webb’s humble basement studio near Jackson, Nebraska, they have been crafting a CD full of tasty country originals and can’t wait to share their passion for music.
“The basic tracks for their latest CD, “Saddle Up Lets Ride,” were recorded in Jary’s living room and they spent the last several months in between work schedules working on the tracks in my small basement studio,” said Webb.
The CD is a collective story about Jeff’s life and his family. Every song is a story from someone in his life.
The song he sings with angels and the CD itself are dedicated to Jeff and Jary’s father Fred who passed away in 2010.”
