About Us

The Short Change Band is comprised of three core members (and a lot of guest musicians).  The Band specializes in Southern Rock, Outlaw Country, Classic Country, Classic Rock, Blues Oldies plus Original Music composed by members of the band.

  

Kevin Winters – vocals, lead & rhythm guitar

Kevin Winters provides lead vocals with a velvet voice, as well as rhythm and lead guitar, mandolin, and dobro. Kevin is a retired Frito-Lay employee (wow, how old is he, anyway?) and lives in Binghamton with his wife, Cindy. Kevin has been writing the original music that the Short Change Band has recorded and performed.

Mike Debetta – vocals, drums

Drums are played by Mike Debetta, who also sings lead and back-up vocals, and occasionally plays a mean bass guitar and congas as well. Mike lives in Afton with his wife Andrea, where he is a volunteer fireman and fire police captain, as well as an EMS provider.

Darrell Dennison – bass

Darrell Dennison plays the bass guitar and keyboards. Darrell was a radio announcer and Dee Jay for several years, and lives in Kirkwood with his wife Tammy and two sons, Matt and Collin. Darrell has a passion for music, games, sports (hockey, baseball, football) and computers.

The band is also fortunate enough to have great support from their spouses, who attend gigs and assist with equipment and set up, and lend a hand whenever necessary.

With over a century of collective experience, the Short Change Band has a vast repertoire spanning all genres of music. The band is a tight-knit group and enjoys playing together, as well as taking band field trips to various music festivals and other interesting places.

Kevin Rutherford – Keyboards

Kevin Rutherford started performing with the Short Change Band in 2013.  His first gig with SCB was on January 12, 2013 at Seeber's Tavern.  Kevin adds a new dynamic to the band and helps fill the sound of the band with his dual keyboards and many sounds available with his keyboards.  Kevin regularly performs with his father as a duo act.
