The Heartbeat of the Band:
Paul Zamora - Bass Player
Joe Lopez - Drummer - back up vocals, vocals
Paul and Joe are actually related. They are cousins who grew up in Rawlins Wyoming, exlploring their musical tallents early on. They both played in their school band and joined a "band" outside of school while in their high school years. Their years of experience show through today, as they have an acceptional ear for timing and a driving force for a great beat!! I am greatful to have worked with both of these men in a professional setting where I met both of them later in life while we all worked in the law enforcement field together. We have come back together after going separate directions in careers, but found each other again in music! So glad to have these guys in the band and honored to be on stage with them! Sure is FUN!
Joe is an amazing singer / backup singer. Although we don't have an original for him to sing, he will blow your socks of with a few covers that we do!! I am blessed to have him singing in my ear so to speak, makes my job of singing more comfortable and alot easier. Its alot of fun to sing with this guy while he wails on his drum set! Which brings me to the point, ill put him up agains any drummer, any time!
I have to thank Paul so much for providing most of the awesome equipment! This guy almost has it all!! Its nice to have a man with enough speakers, wires, chord, mics, monitors, boards, lights, to outfit a football stadium show!! haha!~ Paul has a passion for music and his heart is bigger than anone I know. He truly brings his fun personality and ALL of his equipment to every show so that TennMile can be a success! Valeta is learning the sound board, and we too appreciate her!
Rythem and Soul:
DJ Wallace - Rythem Guitar
DJ is one of the best Rythem Guitar players ive had the opportunity to hear. DJ and I have known each other for quite some time as we were on the Volunteer Fire Department together, and his son Leland and my daughter Taylor are in the same grade in High School. When I heard DJ play I liked what I heard. I thought what a great opportunity to have someone with great guitar skills to play for me so I can concentrate on singing! He has some amazing soft touch and exceptional feel for old time country music.
Leland Wallace - 16 years of age - Lead Guitar
Lee as we call him, is the most amazing young man I know. He is very musically tallented, and he can really play that lead guitar. He puts together leads and ties together songs in ways some professionals can only do, he is music wise beyond his years. I am so blessed to be able to have him in the band. He is going to go on and do great things of his own beyond the band TennMile. I hope you all get a chance to really listen to his licks, and pay attention to his leads and his name. This wont be the only band you see this kid in... he is going to be big time some day.
MY name is Mack Miller- lead singer, songwriter, rythem guitar.
From a small town in South Central Wyoming, to the USAF, music has always been a part of my life. Not until my late 30's did I decide to put together a band. Of course everyone dreams of having one while singing at the top of their lungs on Karaeoke night, but when people keep telling you to "put a band together" believe me... do it! It has been a dream come true and totaly worth it. TennMile has played several local shows, and just by the reaction we have gotten, if it were to end tomorrow, I would consider my days in a band a success. It truly has been a blessing, ive gotten to write, sing, perform and touch people with my own music, with my own band, with my friends! Its been amazing and I hope it continues for a long time. I hope you all get to catch TennMile sometime, we look forward to meeting you!
