Who IS that band playing at Via Birch Bay on New Year’s Eve?

“The Replayzmentz” get their name from three musicians that come out of successful Whatcom County and nationally known bands. This trio of seasoned versatile musicians can play any style of music and they do it right. They are a staple band at Via and come often to entertain our guests here! As a note, OCT. 17/2013 …..The Replayzmentz were voted “silver” in the Best Artist category for the “Best of the Northwest.” Once again, the only band to win a spot.

Scott Kennedy – Lead guitar, musical arranger and vocals.

Scott is a founding member of “Steamboat Willie” and has performed all over the Western States for years. His vast experience in all types of music is second to none. He has performed  with such artists as: Chuck Berry, Sonny & Cher, The Righteous Brothers, Bobby Pickett (The Monster Mash) and The Coasters to name a few.

Dean Anderson – Bass and vocals.

Dean has played with other local bands for many years becoming one of the premier players in Whatcom County. He previously played bass with the group Cinnamon in the early 70’s through the early 80’s. He then joined The Wanderers, playing rhythm guitar, keyboards, drums and of course bass guitar. Dean has become a natural fit for the Replayzmentz whenever and wherever they perform. 

Mike Gallagher – Drums.

“The Rock” is the glue that holds this band together. Mike has played with the legendary country rock band “Southbound” and most recently with “Jimmy Murphy” along with Hall of Famer Larry Knetchel. Because of his solid performance, he is the most sought after drummer in the Northwest.
