    The Shrubs

    Position: Band
    : Carl Miller, Guitars, Lead Vocals
    : Spike, Drummer, Vocals
    : RJ, Bass, Vocals

    The Shrubs started out when Spike and RJ, college classmates in Upstate New York, started jamming in the basement of Spike’s mother’s house around 1985. Their mutual influences were the Police, Rush and XTC among others. Later an acquaintance introduced Carl to the guys. After jamming for a while, the trio decided they needed a name. They came up with The Shrubs after dismissing other names (Dumpster Juice & Piggy Pucker among them). They found a new practice home in the basement of a friend’s house and soon were playing at parties there, other house parties, bars and even a local Rod and Gun Club. They started writing and recording their own music, producing 3 albums of original music (Another Day Goes By…, One Happy Zucchini and Who’s Cow’s in the Hoosegow). The band went on hiatus for a while when RJ moved to San Diego. Spike and Carl started re-recording and mixing new parts of the old songs. The result was a re-release of Another Day Goes By… Now the collaboration extends across the nation to update current songs and work on new songs.

    Don Whitaker

    Position: Lead Guitarist
    : Singer
    : Song Writer

    Don Whitaker is an Indiana singer/songwriter currently living in Putnam County Indiana. He recently launched his newest band, Street Legal, which he fronts, the band currently playing at different venues in West Central Indiana.

    His first introduction to performing occurred at age six, when he found himself standing atop bars at local VFWs to sing covers – music coming from the bar’s jukebox – his efforts adding to Don’s stash of quarters for his pinball fascination. Don has been playing professionally since the age of 15, appearing in the horn section of the touring band, Morning Star, while also taking his turn at the mic as a young singer.
    Over the years Don became a sought after singer of rock, country & folk, while also becoming proficient in the guitar, bass, drums, piano, trumpet, trombone and fiddle. Some of the many bands he played with over the past several decades include Backwoods Boys, Chasing Rainbows, Backtracked and Rusted Buckle. Don says, “Sometimes it seems nothing matters but music. I’ve been doing this for years, and I know I’ll never stop.”
