Bob Letheby started his musical career in 1962 with a local Norfolk, Nebraska band, The Dynamic
Drifters. The Drifters played throughout the Midwest and had regional success with a music single
that included the songs, 40 Days and Let's Have a Party, recorded in Minneapolis, Minnesota
on the Bangaar music label. After a "vacation" in Southeast Asia, Bob returned to his music career
with the Country-Rock group Young Country. In 1975, Young Country released a music single
that included the Jim Casey and Shel Silverstein song, Blind Willie Harper, along with
the instrumental Ghost Riders in the Sky. Young Country toured extensively throughout the Midwest
and Canada, and appeared with numerous artist and bands such as The Flying Burrito Brothers, Jerry
Jeff Walker, Hank Williams Jr., David Allen Coe, and Pure Prairie League. Young
Country's recordings also include the album, Barroom Blues, and two additional music singles;
Gettin' Ready for the Storm and Walk Away, and No Day for Singin' the Blues
and White Sport Coat.
Judi Letheby, originally from Rhinelander, Wisconsin, played keyboards and sang in the group Split Decision
before moving to Norfolk, Nebraska. Judi and Bob met through the music scene in Norfolk and later formed the group
Judi & the Squirts. The group released an album of original songs, recorded at the Fort Dodge, Iowa
based recording studio Junior's Motel.
After moving to Lincoln, Nebraska, Bob and Judi Letheby formed a new group, The Perks with well-known
native muscian, Butch Berman. The Perks recorded an original Rockabilly album, Twisted Twang,
and made numerous appearances at the renowned Lincoln nightclub, The Zoo Bar. While in Lincoln, they also
worked with Jim Casey on the Nebraska Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concerts, producing sold-out events
throughout Nebraska. Bob was inducted into the Nebraska Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Drifters
in 1996, and again in 2004 with Young Country. In 2012, Bob and Judi returned to Norfolk, Nebraska, and are
presently working on original projects with recording producer Matt Casey.
Today, Bob 'n Judi entertain audiences with a show that features Classic Country, 60's and 70's
Pop & Rock, some original songs, and a little humour (that can only come from twenty-six years of wedded
bliss) thrown in for good measure.
