Released the CD "Standing Alone" in 2011 recorded in St. Louis,MO at Music Masters.

Director's Cut

After years in the making, we are finally releasing this "Director's Cut" of a music video produced for the Missouri Department of Conservation. "On The Water," written by Missouri native Scott Nienhaus and performed with musical partner, Terry Jones Rogers, features ten of their musical friends in a number of different water locations throughout Missouri. Other artists include Rusty Young, founding member of the band "POCO, " Supe Granda of Ozark Mountain Daredevils" fame, Ingrid Berry (Chuck's daughter) R. Scott Bryan, Sandy Weltman, Javier Mendoza, Missouri Mile and Madison Thorn. Of course, none of this would have been possible without Peg Craft at Missouri Department of Conservation, our crew, director Joe Guerra, cinematographers Jack Twesten & Preston Guerra, recording engineers Chuck Stanton & Phil Nadeau, associate producer Susan McMichael and grip Madison Thorn. We owe a special debt of gratitude to the generosity of Mike Rosenthal at 90º West Post, the amazing editing skills of Scott Conger and the final mixing and sweetening of the audio track by the lovely & talented Mark Bartels. Thanks again everyone. Now sit back, crank up your speakers and enjoy!!
