Jayd Raines is the new bass player with Don Rigsby and Midnight Call, where he will also share in the harmony vocal duties. He joins Rigsby on mandolin and lead vocals, Clyde Marshall on guitar, Lloyd Herring on banjo and Matt Hooper on fiddle.
Raines had been working with The Bartley Brothers before making the switch, and did nearly three years with Marty Raybon before that. He is stoked to be working with Midnight Call.
“Don has a busy rest of the year, and will also be having a busy schedule next year. I am very excited about this new endeavor and look forward to all of the shows.”
