Poster in Vienna

1994 Wayne opened a recording studio in Rio Rancho, New Mexico where he now lives. Rio Rancho, just a few miles north of Albuquerque, is a fairly nondescript area musically compared to the bustling recording centers of Los Angeles and Nashville where Wayne Moore once worked. But it is in this quiet New Mexico community of 50.000 that the former bassist of the legendary country rock band, "Nashville West", now calls home.

1994 Wayne toured Austria and Italy with the "Calvary Singers". They did Gospel and contemporary Christian music.

He played two summer concerts with "Tiffany".

He occasionally performed with Frank and Peter Scaltrito, former members of "Tommy James and The Shondells".

Around Christmas 1994 "The Nite Rider Band" was playing in a club out in the mountains. An old log cabin in the pines called "The Ponderosa". Gib Guilbeau was playing with the band that night. The picture right is Wayne Moore on bass, Phil Howard doing lead vocals, Gib Guilbeau on fiddle, Richard Martin on drums, Bill Kelley on electric guitar and Edna Seifert on vocals. (Note: Edna Seifert married Richard Martin summer 2001, now Edna Martin). Also playing that night on bass was an old friend of Wayne and Bill "Skip Bacheler". Wayne invited him out to the club there, he is an old "Burrito" fan and wanted to set in. Nite Rider Band with Gib Guilbeau

    Wayne Around 1997 Wayne recorded a few songs with the Nite Rider Band (he's playing with that band since 1987). Wayne, Bill Kelley and Joanne Kamp wrote "Hero to zero", it was a song Bill had written. Wayne re-wrote the second verse and Joanne did some lines in the last verse, Wayne played all the music except the lead, Bill played that, then Wayne and Joanne did all the backup vocals and arrangement. Bill wrote "Whisky" and played lead, Troy Moore sang harmony, Wayne did all the rest. These songs and a few more were never released! Mostly the music they recorded in Wayne's studio was for promoting Nite Rider and practice.

    Bill Kelley remembers why they recorded "Hero to zero":

    The reason we recorded it was Wayne and Joanne asked me to play lead on a song they were working on, I said I'd love to, all I would ask in return is that Joanne sing "Hero to zero" for me, she did and it came out great. There is about six songs we were working on, Wayne did "Blue suede shoes", I did "Whisky, I'm gonna put you out of my misery" Edna did "Keep me from blowing away", Joanne did "Hero to zero", there was another band member then, Fred Mullerude, he sang an original song, and we did a medley of old rock songs. Then Fred left and Richard Martin took his place as drummer".

    Wayne The reason why the "Nite Rider Band" stopped playing was Bill Kelley had back surgery. He had complications, now he's recovering, but Bill can't stand long and play, thats when Wayne joined a bluegrass band.
