For many years Five Card Draw worked to fulfill a dream of completing their first CD. Grandpa's Star is the culmination of their efforts to complete that dream.

Five Card Draw is often called "The Best Deal in Country Music", and they are just that. They are known for the excitement they create both on and off the stage.

The energetic and accomplished country band has been pleasing enthusiastic two steppers with live dance music for 15 years and has opened for many popular country stars such as:

Brad Paisley, Pat Green, Radney Foster, Gary P. Nunn, Steve Wariner, Charlie Daniels, George Jones, Trisha Yearwood, Pam Tillis, Highway 101, John Anderson, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ronnie Milsap, Mark Chesnutt, Ricochet, Bellamy Brothers, The Wilkinsons, Wade Hayes, and Big And Rich, just to name a few.

Five Card Draw stays on top of contemporary country trends, as well as some well-turned country classics and classic rock 'n roll.

Alfred and Roger Tumlinson grew up listening to country music by Merle Haggard, George Jones and some Bob Wills. They have always been involved in numerous choirs including church and school. They took the first step to fulfilling their dream by starting the band 15 years ago.

While Alfred and Roger are the vocalists for the band, Alfred also plays the guitar and Roger plays the guitar and the fiddle.

The other members of the band are Robbie Johnson, piano; Alex Bayarena, guitar; Walter Presley, bass guitar; Dale Phillips, drums; and George Crawford, fiddle; and Gary Carriger, steel guitar.

Five Card Draw, led by Alfred and Roger Tumlinson, has now completed yet another dream. The release of their first CD, Grandpa's Star in November of 2000. It has captured the attention of their current and new fans. One of the singles from the CD, "I'm Not Over You", can be heard on 97.5 KFTX Real Country, and KOUL 103.7 Corpus Christi, Texas radio stations.

You can bet when you attend one of their shows you have been entertained by "The Best Band in South Texas".

Five Card Draw's new CD; "Grandpa's Star" was produced by Sam Neely. The album was recorded at Taliesyn Music.
