Pony Creek, a musical collaboration between Ryan Osbahr and Billie Frost, was formed in the spring of 2016. Hailing from the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro, the name “Pony Creek” is derived from a small creek by the same name that runs between the duo’s homes.
In May of 2016, along with a full band consisting of Eric Nelson (guitar), Travis Goddard (guitar, banjo, mandolin), George Cooper (bass), and Tim Blair (drums), Pony Creek released their debut album “Easy Way Out” to critical acclaim in the Midwest. The album was nominated for “Album of the Year” by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards and Pony Creek was nominated for “Best Country” artist by the same institution in 2016 and 2017. For the past two summers, Pony Creek have become regulars in the Okoboji, Iowa music scene, consistently performing in front of sold out crowds.
Playing a variety of folk, blues, Americana, country and rock, Pony Creek has quickly made a name for themselves as one of the region’s hottest new acts. Whether playing Spencer, Iowa’s Wheels Up festival for RAGBRAI 2017, Manning Main Street RAGBRAI 2018 festival, or rocking the crowd for southwest Iowa’s Tri City BBQ Fest in Denison, Pony Creek delivers family friendly entertainment that connects with all ages. Opening for national artists such as Jeremy McComb (Nashville), “The Voice” alumni Curtis Grimes (Texas), Jason Eady (Jackson, MS), Jon Langston (Nashville), and Tucker Beathard (Nashville), the band continues to gain popularity in the Midwest region.
On September 18, 2018, Pony Creek will release its follow up album entitled “Pott County”, a 15 track country/rock album that draws influences from Dwight Yoakam to Kacey Musgraves. “Pott County” is a mash-up of storytelling that includes small town life, heartbreak, happiness, love, family, addiction, revenge, and more. It was recorded in Omaha, Nebraska at ARC Studios and mastered by Lurssen Mastering, a world-renowned multi-Grammy Award winning mastering studio. Pony Creek’s music can be found on AMI Jukeboxes nationwide.

The Weber brothers of Omaha are not afraid to take their time, but they’re also not afraid to take a swing… smack you in the nose and just let it bleed. A combination of factors lead them down their current musical path: strongly personal themes coupled with a love for the sound of pedal steel and traditional country music. Unlike previous projects, the Get and Ground Tyrants, this new cocktail did not fit in the standard rock vessel. “We were writing songs about our grandparents, or songs about being parents—the format was obvious once the material began to take shape. We love playing songs slow, enjoying the simplicity and the power… we decided to look for some guys who felt the same way.” Rehearsal became the goal-- getting together to make music, sharing an interesting bottle of whiskey, laughing and remembering. “It feels right to us… and that should be obvious from the moment we plug in.” Craig Meier (Sixty Watt Saloon, Hong Jyn Corporation, Pendrakes) on bass and Jarron Wayne Storm (Willard’s Band, Poncho and the Contraband) on drums deftly provide the giddy-up; Paul Novak (Pendrakes) agreed to tie it all together on acoustic guitar. The Weber brothers are free to switch between steel and six string, exchange leads on telecasters, and harmonize at will. With four willing and able vocalists, the group can create some novel and powerful dynamics. On April 18th, Clarence Tilton will release their first full length, recorded almost entirely live in a studio tucked into the hills behind the Webers’ hometown in northeast Nebraska.
