Hey Scare Tactics followers, I'm very excited to announce that the formation of a live band is now complete!


Vocals - Dee St James

Drums - Lee Mize

Bass - Travis Stafford

And of course, I will be playing guitar

We've had a few rehearsals already and I can say with confidence that the band is sounding awesome. I can't wait to get out there and do some live shows! Stay tuned!!

Sad to announce that Scare Tactics vocalist Dee St James has left the band. After careful consideration, he has decided that the time has come to stop gigging and playing out. This will free him up to focus on the completion of some personal recording projects as well as spend time with family. We wish him all the best. However, we are very happy to announce that my former Intox bandmate and singer Ray Frye has agreed to step in! We are eager to see how things go given that Dee and Ray are very different stylistically. We think the change will be very interesting to say the least. Stay tuned!!!!

It's been two years that a live lineup has been in place.  When I set out to record all of the old ST material, I never actually envisioned having a live band.  It was a welcome experience.  However, getting back out there, trying to secure gigs, get people to come to the shows, and so forth has re-introduced me to all of the familiar headaches that I originally tried to avoid.  The "fun" is is outweighed by these headache. Given that, I've come to the realization that I no longer enjoy the live aspect of being in a band.  I enjoy the recording and studio more. I'm sure my advanced age is part of the issue, haha. Playing live seems to be more of a young mans game. I wish nothing but the best for Lee, Travis and Ray as they move forward with their musical endeavors.  As for me, I will likely return to recording material on my own and releasing here on this website.
