Devin ~ Guitar, Vocals, Ukulele
When Devin joined WithoutExcuse, we put a lot of pressure on him to learn tons of material and be ready to play 5 full sets at Six Flags Great America in only TWO weeks. Shortly after, we put pressure on him to learn the lead, male vocals for everything. He has stepped up to every challenge and has never complained. When he's not performing, he tends to make a lot of high pitched, squeaky sounds. That may be why he fits in so well.
Rachel ~ Lead Vocals
Packed with energy, talent, and fun, Rachel brings the beauty to the band. She is as sweet as she is beautiful. As the only girl, she is partly picked on - partly protected, and fully loved. In addition to amazing vocals and tons of energy, Rachel makes sure all of the boys smell good. Rachel loves vinegar flavored potato chips and french fries. Her newest talent is singing like a "sassy butterfly."
Isaac ~ Drums, Vocals
Isaac is our very favorite drummer. He is so much fun to watch. Not only that, but Isaac is pretty hilarious. We found that we had more video footage of him than anyone else during the production of our latest video. Why? Because he's so funny that we can't help but point a camera at him. If he wasn't drumming, he'd make a pretty good overseas telephone tech support person. Isaac has also been writing songs. He wrote the title song to our new EP: Hallways. He sometimes competes with Devin in making the high pitched, squeaky sounds.
Dillon ~ Guitar, Keyboard
Dillon's skinny body is packed with talent - he plays guitar, bass, and keys. He has a very unique sense of humor and we never know when it's going to show itself, especially since he's very quiet and only the privileged get to see it. On stage he's calm, comfortable, and cool. Off stage he's calm, comfortable and cool. He also has a heart of gold, a love for music, and a gentle spirit. Don't let his size fool you - he has a very deep voice.
Beau - Bass
Beau is our newest member. He is crazy talented. In addition to bass, he plays piano and guitar. Beau is quiet and sweet. He is active in his church and has a heart for Jesus. His favorite band is Sidewalk Prophets. We're very excited to have Beau on board. So far, we haven't heard any high pitched, squeaky sounds from him, but that could change. If you see him, make sure to welcome him to WithoutExcuse.
WithoutExcuse members are amazingly talented young people who leave us in awe. Their willingness to share their talent and the Gospel is heartwarming. But WithoutExcuse is more than just a band - it is a family, whose members are generous and committed. We would like to thank Cory Mattson (who is such a devoted and amazing manager), Ron Mattson (for building stuff and storing our gear in their house), Kaylin Quella (for her amazing design and photography skills), Chuck and Gail Wirsbinski (amazing help - especially with transportation and trailer pulling), Anna and Marshall Kaiser (great people who always jump in and take on whatever they can - such as running silent auctions at fundraisers or managing table vendors at concerts), and the Schmidt family (for their willingness to jump in and help in any area of need, despite having intense schedules). All of the WithoutExcuse family members devote their time to volunteering at our events, loading and unloading gear, driving people, rearranging schedules, holding practice at their homes, and helping in any way needed. We also want to thank Bethany Baptist Church for allowing us practice and sometimes leave our gear there. We appreciate you guys more than we can say! THANK YOU! ~Dan and Jacki Knoblock
