Tim McGraw Tribute: Twin McGraw
Only McGraw tribute show that is endorsed by Tim McGraw himself, and why not? This show features original dancehall doctor drummer of 18 years, Billy “thunder” mason. (1994-2012) along with twin McGraw as our “Tim”. You will get the ‘ultimate” show that features 90 minutes of powerhouse hits from McGraw years with the dancehall doctors. Authentic set lists, tour used gear, etc. You will find yourself walking down memory lane with hit after hit just like stepping back in time!
What makes this show so different with having Billy behind the drums driving this band? He was the driving force behind the dancehall doctors for all those years.
Billy Mason, drummer, from Cleveland, joined in 1994:
“He’s always a kid at heart. He wants everybody to be happy. On this record, he was the rock that kept everybody together. He always puts on a great show, and I don’t think he had any overdubs at all on this record . . . He was the star of the record. At the end of the session we all stood up and gave him a standing ovation.”

Testing the waters for a demand for the show, he brought Jeff Richards in for the McGraw role. History with the 2 stem back to the early DHD days in Laughlin, NV when Richards came to a show. You may find other McGraw guys out there, but none had McGraw’s stamp of approval or an original band member. Mason could have handpicked ‘any’ McGraw guy and he picked Reff Richards.
Upon putting the band together, mason was extremely particular about the roles of the band members. Each member had to have a McGraw connection in some form. Building the Ultimate All-Star band.
