)-- Lead singer of Kenny Wayne's Shephard's band Noah Hunt will take the stage with the opening act for Blues Traveler Concert, Scotty Bratcher on June 27, 2009 at Jd Legends Entertainment complex.
Scotty Bratcher began playing guitar at an age that it became second nature to him, he was 2.
By this time, Stevie Ray Vaughan was impressing the world, and when the 1989 release of Austin City Limits was aired, you can imagine where Scotty was-in front of the television. Eventually Scotty's father had acquired a few electric guitars that he let Scotty play as long as he was careful with them.
He ended up, after a while, going to some open mic nights at clubs in the Cincinnati area. This was where he began getting on-stage experience and eventually found band members to support him
In the next several years, Scotty sat in with various bands, one of which posed the opportunity to open for hero Lonnie Mack.
In 2000, he entered the National Jam with Kenny Wayne Shepherd Contest. In this contest, contestants were to download via computer, KWS’s new single of which the lead solo was to be made up by the competitors. Out of 1,200 entries, Scotty received 1st runner up.
Scotty has played with and opened for names like Ted Nugent, Little Texas, Buddy Guy, Joe Bonamassa, Chris Duarte, Anthony Gomes, Foghat, Lonnie Brooks, Ronnie and Wayne Baker Brooks, Bob Margolin, Eddie "the Chief" Clearwater, and many more.
