Peso Dollar Band
The Peso Dollar Band was formed by father Peso Dollar in the early 1950's. Originally called Peso Dollar and the Counterfeit Bills, we have worked, recorded and performed with some of the greatest artists and musicians in the world. Peso worked for the Arizona Department of Public Safety, (the Highway Patrol back then), for 23 years, and ran for sheriff of Maricopa County in 1972. He also was a spokesman for Bobby Unser and the N.K. Hurst Hambeen Co. Of Indiana, helping to make them the number one selling bean soup in America. We now call the band, the Peso Dollar Bandstand All-Stars. After 50 years of playing music, we have been through a few musicians, each of them an All-Star in their own right.
We have opened shows and performed wIth such artist as Roy Rogers, Rex Allen, Gene Autry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Raven, Vince Gill, Juice Newton, Don Henley, Joe Maphis, Eddie Adcock and many, many more. We have performed shows all over America and Canada from royalty to presidents, from the Queen Mary to the Jackass Inn, and we have done all this while maintaining a steady gig for the last 27 years at the Rustler's Rooste Restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona. We currently work at the "Rooste" Tuesday thru Saturday from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The current line up consists of Mark "Buck" Dollar on guitar and vocals, Dan "Lonesome Larry Dove" King on guitar, Dennis "Hoppy" Chipley on bass and vocals and Randy " The Great Randini" Matthews on Drums and Vocals.
