The Time Burners is a husband & wife Americana music duo from Lincoln, NE. We met playing music in our high school years and we've been together ever since. Our musical experience over the years has allowed us to play a vast array of venues and events all over the Midwest. While paying our dues and learning the roots of music, we played in an award winning band called Travis & the Flamekats. We also had the good fortune to share the stage and learn from some blues greats such as Magic Slim, Nick Holt, Duke Robillard & Shemekia Copeland.
The Time Burners have played a large variety of shows including several major events like the Nebraska State Fair, Iowa State Fair, Omaha Summer Arts Festival, Arts On The Plaza Concert Series, Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation Grower's Gala, Apple Jack Festival and Vala's Pumpkin Patch. Travis and Becky have played all kinds of venues including the legendary Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, IA. Our family-friendly shows allow us to entertain and bring smiles to folks of all ages. The Time Burners are also a nominee for the 2017 Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards as the best Americana/Folk group.
Our love of old music that has meaning is something that has stuck with us and continues to blossom as we mature musically. A perfect blend of rockabilly, classic country, and roots based music is our forte along with a mix of our original songs. Keeping true music alive and kicking is something we have a passion for and hope you enjoy what we create as much as we love making it.
"Travis and Becky are great entertainers. We have all ages of people at our concerts and everyone enjoyed it. The older generation were transported back by the songs of their youth and the young kids were dancing and enjoying the cool music. Between the music and humor, they kept smiles on the faces of everyone." - Robert Martinson - NRoute Entertainment Fort Cody Music Series
"The Time Burners are a delightful duet that captures the spirit of traditional country music reminiscent of the early days of the Grand Ole Opry. Their audience appeal is fantastic and their professionalism, in not only their performance but with their communication and booking, is well above standard. I'd be pleased to have them at any event I'm producing and I know they will entertain the crowd every time. It was a pleasure to have them at the 20th Annual Wahoo Country Music Show and I'll look forward to hearing them again soon." - Sharon Kenaston - Director of Wahoo Country Music Show
"The Time Burners were fantastic! They were great about communicating ahead of time. Also, they spent time talking with guests (including the family of the little boy who we honored at our event) in between sets, played AMAZING songs that everyone enjoyed (at the perfect volume, so that guests could enjoy the music while still being able to converse). Very professional. Can't say enough about them!" - Kristin Fitzgerald - Carnival For A Cause
"The Time Burners sound is brilliant and simple, it's like rockabilly should sound and the vocals are fantastic" - Chema Valbuena - Rock Therapy Radio (Spain)
"You are such an incredible talent! Allow me to gush a bit.... ;-) you create these unforgettable moments for your audience where they are able to be within the moment and forget about their worries and troubles. It's a gift! Your talent is such high quality! Perfect example is Becky on Tennessee Waltz- she could revival Patti Page any day! She can stop the worlds rotation with her voice." - Kat Cloran - Gratitude Cafe
"We received all great comments. Patrick and I both commented on your energy and style of music. You were very interactive with the crowd, and that kept many patrons there for most of the night." - Teresa Mejstrik - Brew Coffee House & Tasting Room
"Some of it reminds me of the late great Charlie Feathers. Great writing, performing & recording." - Emerson - Hotrodzilla Radio on Live365.com
"Our residents and staff truly enjoyed your music and we definitely want you to come back!" - Valerie Dempster - The Evergreen
"The songs were a combination of wonderfully fresh renditions of old favorites and originals that are right at home in the company of the classics. The performance was engaging and intimate, even when playing to a large crowd. The harmonies were sharp and interesting and the interplay between Becky and Travis was simply charming. I really loved the show and I look forward to seeing them again soon." - Billy Sobczyk - Omaha Jitterbugs
“Our crowd loved the Time Burners! Everyone enjoyed the way they interacted with the audience, but most of the feedback we received focused on what talented musicians they are. They played the perfect mix of music and had our members tapping their toes and singing along all night. I highly recommend the Time Burners!” - Megahn Schafer (Executive Director) - Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation
"The Time Burners were Awesome! We hope they'll be back sometime very soon." - Fort Cody Trading Post
