Herb Semones and Jeff Barnes have been playing music together
off and on for over 25 years. As co-founders of the band "CONCEPT" they recruited members and worked their way up in
the music scene of the 80's and 90's. Their versatility musically set them apart from many of the other acts of the time.
They acheived a high level of success playing some of the largest clubs in Central Kentucky including Phoenix Hill Tavern
and Caddy's in Louisville and opening up for "Bachman Turner Overdrive" (BTO) at Rhinestones in Lexington, as well as
various other smaller bars, private parties, proms and frat parties all over central Kentucky. "CONCEPT" was a regular at
the Capital EXPO festival in Frankfort for years. Playing regularly at the Phoenix Hill Tavern in Louisville as well as the
Monkey's Uncle in Frankfort "CONCEPT" built a very loyal following.
