Lang and McClain Round 3 - May 28, 2016

Lang and McClain will start performing again in July. We have decided to make it the 4th Saturday of every month, at Shenanigans, on west main street in Belleville, Il. We've got quite a few new songs, as well as some tried and true classics. It has been 18 years  (holy cow) since our last performance. Come on out and let's start a new tradition.

Lang and McClain - April 10, 2016

Guild performances put on hold - April 10, 2016

Any future Guild performances have been put on hold. My brother Jim and I, after further thought, feel that it would take way too much effort and coordination too pull it off and realistically maintain our standards. Jim, as many of you know, lives in Houma Louisiana (way too far away). Gary McClain, Don Biver, and I, though, are always willing to join in on any musical production with a few songs. Thanks again for all your interest.

HELP! Where to play? - March 7, 2016

The Guild, featuring..  Rich Lang, Gary McClain, Jim Lang, Bill Ulkus, Don Biver, would like to put on a couple of Shows this summer. Perhaps late June, and early August. I need everyone's input as to where to hold these performances. Please chime in with some suggestions. One show would be held up north in the Benld/Staunton area, the other in the Belleville area. Keep in mind the place needs to hold a lot of people, and have a big bar. Please let me know what you all think.  Thanks,

Rich Lang

Hold On - September 16, 2015

The trio, Lang And McClain featuring Virginia Williams, has been put on hold. Busy lives (daughter Kaci getting married, Malt Shop cruise)and a lack of motivation is the culprit. I'll keep you all informed as to when things change. Later,

Rich Lang

New Trio - April 12, 2015

Well it's time to kick off the dust and get back into the swing of things. Gary McClain, Virginia Williams, and I(Rich Lang) have decided to put a trio together and start performing again. We will start putting a song list together, and rehearsing this week. I suppose we will call this trio "Lang And McClain" featuring Virginia Williams.

Hey Guild fans - November 30, 2014

Just a reminder. At the Moondog Show Saturday many people asked about how they could get some old Guild music. You can get The Guild live '73 album on iTunes, or any internet music site. Also available are Gretchen Wilson songs, and Greg Guidry songs. Check them out on my Music Page, here on the site.

Great Time, Moondogs say thanks - November 30, 2014

I would like to thank each and everyone who came to the Moondog Show last Saturday at the Bel-Air bowl. The band and I really enjoyed performing again down in the basement at the old Panorama. It brought back many wonderful memories. It was a great turn out, and I hope you all had just as great a time.
