Uncle Bethel

Uncle Bethel, a singer/songwriter team, features Lisa Car and Doug Budzak on vocals and all instruments.

The pair, formerly billed as VOODOO CHILI, decided it was time for a change when they began writing songs for the Nashville market. The name, "Strong & Beautiful" was considered for a time, but when the question "Which of us is going to be Beautiful?" couldn't be settled, they decided on UNCLE BETHEL, in honor of a favorite uncle of Lisa's from Silver Point, TN, because: (a) they thought it sounded cool & (b) it wasn't already taken. Lisa and Doug write their own songs and have collaborated with other writers. Lisa and Doug also own and operate the Rockit Juice Audio recording studio. Through their music, they hope to be noticed as performing songwriters, make an obscene amount of money and retire to the lake!

But, in the mean time ....


Uncle Bethel is mixing things up with some contemporary holiday tunes blended with great originals and even some fun honky-tonk music!

Special guests Ken Cooper


and MaryJustice

add to the good times, so don't miss it!

Another Great Showcase

Ken has invited Lisa Carr and Doug Budzak to join him in this upcoming showcase. Lisa and Doug are a husband and wife team who bill themselves as Uncle Bethel. This multi-talented duo, with years of musical training and experience, also offers musical and vocal backup along with recording in their studio, Rockit Juice Audio.

Ken is a regular at the Coffee Tree Books & Brew on Songwriter's Open Mic night as well as the hosting the Tree's Saturday Night Open Mic. Check out Ken's latest CD available at CD Baby. "Take A Swing At Me," delves into your life as you know it - from the classic bar song title track, to heartfelt memories of a lost-loved one with "Where The Angels Ride," to bittersweet lost loves in "Love In The Rain" and "Bleeding From The Inside." Some happy love songs like "Carolina Girl" and "Mademoselle" are thrown into Ken's latest mix presenting a full-flavored, contemporary country album.
