Meet The Band
Don White – Chief Tire Rotator and Lead Guitar
Don started playing guitar at a very young age and brings a great deal of experience with him to our group. His remarkable guitar skills enable him to be an outstanding performer and entertainer. His talents give the Gas Pump Jockeys the opportunity to do a variety of musical styles from Steely Dan, to Chicago, to The Byrds, to the Eagles, and that is just scratching the surface. Don White is a very special guitarist.
Pat McLoughlin – Top Oil and Lube Man – Front Man and Lead Vocals
Pat McLoughlin is the lively and entertaining front man of The Gas Pump Jockeys, a role he has had since the band's inception twenty years ago. He is everywhere on stage and off. His banter with the audience is so entertaining that it's often worth seeing the group just to see what will happen between the crowd and his wackiness. An excellent vocalist and harmony singer, you might be impressed with how well he blends with the other singers in the group. Pat McLoughlin is the group's epicenter, a dynamic performer, and the stage leader of The Gas Pump Jockeys.
Scott Langley – Chief Coke Bottle Washer and Coffee Maker – Drummer & Vocals
Talented drummer Scott Langley keeps The Gas Pump Jockeys on track throughout the show. A veteran of many successful bands, he keeps the pace of the show moving and pounds out the beat for all of those great songs. Though perched behind his drums, he also joins in on vocals throughout the band's performance. Heard on almost every song as a harmony voice, his range will leave you amazed. Pretty good for a guy who "is just the drummer", but Scott Langley is so much more than that with The Gas Pump Jockeys.
Mike Losekamp – Tune Up Specialist – Keyboards & Vocals
An amazing aspect of The Gas Pump Jockeys is that they have TWO members who, in their hey-day, were members of bands that charted top ten hits on Billboard's Hot 100- Chart and received a gold record for selling over one million units. Mike Losekamp, a former member of The Cyrkle, was hired and managed by Brian Epstein (who also managed The Beatles!) The Cyrkle was selected to be the Fab Four's opening act on their last tour of the United States (14 cities/22 shows). The Cyrkle received a gold record for the memorable song "Red Rubber Ball" (written by Paul Simon) which peaked at #2. They had five other songs on the "Hot 100" charts including "Turn Down Day" which peaked at #16. Mike Losekamp is an absolutely AMAZING vocalist, keyboardist, and performer!
Dean Kastran – Chief Mechanic – Bass Guitar & Vocals
The second member of The Gas Pump Jockeys to score gold record recognition is bassist Dean Kastran. Actually, his band of the day, The Ohio Express, had not one, but two gold records for their mega-international hit song called "Yummy, Yummy, Yummy", which sold over three million units. Their follow-up hit, "Chewy, Chewy" sold well over a million records. Dean Kastran is the real deal as he is a professional talent on his bass and as a vocalist.
Mark Smith – Check your tires, Look under the hood, Clean the windshield – Sound Man Extraordinaire
The stage members of The Gas Pump Jockeys will quickly and unanimously admit that the most important member of the organization is the sound man, and in this band that person is Mark Smith. Mark spins the correct dials and pushes the right buttons that balance the sound of the band, controls the volume, and ensures that those who listen to The Gas Pump Jockeys have an enjoyable experience. Without Mark Smith, The Gas Pump Jockeys would sound like every other self-service filling station musical group that hurts your ears and makes your eyes water. But thankfully, Mark Smith is with The Gas Pump Jockeys and his talents place them above all of the others.
