|'Dixie' D . - vocals, button accordions,
guitars, bluegrass banjo, harmonica.
'Scrubber' Pete - rubboard ( frottoir ), didgeridoo,
kazoos and sound effex!!, vocals..

|'Gumbo' Pete - electric bass, vocals.
|'Mikey' Michel Green on violin and lapsteel
while not busy with The Audreys
Brent(Bayou) Miller - mandolin and vocals
Brent Miller is originally from Adelaide, South Australia. He's a man of many talents. A Doctor of Podiatry, wine expert, gourmet, as well as an harmony singer, bass and acoustic guitar player in Eric's band. When Brent's not working with Eric, he's involved with several other music groups as well. Until recently, he was the only native born Australian in Eric's band, which is strange really, as, in speech at least, he sounds for all the world like a middle class pommy twit. Mind you, that's only when he's sober or trying to chat a woman up. (from http://ericbogle.net/bogleband/index.htm)
|'Buckwheat' Steve - button and piano accordion, keyboard,
rhythm guitar, vocals.

"Creole CowboyZ are back!
The Creole cowboyZ signature brand of very danceable Cajun-Creole-Zydeco music is proving extremely popular with country music fans of all ages around the state. All multi-instrumentalists, the cowboyZ love mixing styles and sounds considered left-of-centre from standard country music fare. This gives the BoyZ a chance to appeal to a broader audience – there’s something for just about everyone in their repertoire.
If you’ve ever been to a Creole cowboyZ gig, you’ll know the BoyZ always have a lot of on-stage fun guaranteed to get even the most well-behaved audience going—getting down and joining the dancers in the middle of a song is normal!
Since appearing at the Adelaide Country Music Club last January, the BoyZ have been taking their show on the road — Port Pirie, Kapunda and Gawler CMC have all enjoyed the cowboyZ unique style and lineup.
It’s a busy year ahead for the band, with advance bookings at a number of city venues, such as the British Workingmen’s Club, the Semaphore and Port Adelaide music festivals later this year. While continuing to support local Country Music Cubs, the CowboyZ will also play at the Kapunda Cancer Benefit Concert and the Blanchetown Country Campout in coming months.
Their debut album features a combination DVD and CD 2-disc set that really shows the happy atmosphere and enthusiasm of their live performances. This set is on sale for $25 at their concerts or by writing to the BoyZ at PO Box 2100, Hilton, SA 5033.
