Liz Morphis

Lead Vocals

Born in Northeast Louisiana, Liz moved to East Texas in Junior High School.  She’s been in Austin for over 15 years now and never wants to leave! Liz has the unique ability to sing a wide range of musical genres.  From Rock to Jazz, Blue, R&B, Country, Oldies, and Modern hits, Liz effortlessly moves through all eras of music.  Not only is Liz a fabulous singer but she knows how to work the crowd! She is our chanteuse and audiences just love her!

Danny Smith

Keyboard & Lead Male Vocals

Danny Smith has been in bands for ever.  A regular on the piano bar circuit, Danny knows more songs than anybody in the band.  He can actually hear a song on the radio and play it after a few listens.  His smooth and sometimes rough voice pours out great ballads, rock standards, country, and blue eyed soul.  Danny is our musical director and keeps us in the right key!  He is also one of our 2 Grammy nominees in the band.

David Beeson

Guitarist & Backup Vocals

David Beeson, our other Grammy nominee, is by far the most versatile guitarist any of us have met. He can play Beatles on acoustic or GNR on electric.  He studies the songs we plays and plays them to a T!  David teaches guitar during the day to middle and high school kids.  His passion for music and playing music like the record comes out in every note he hits!  

Russell Simonson


Originally from Arizona, our keyboard player Danny found Russell working in a bar in Nashville and recruited him to join us!  

Ken Kokel


Ken Kokel is a drummer’s drummer. Ken not only knows every beat on every song we play, but he also holds down a rhythm you can measure against any metronome.  He starts and finishes every song with precision and drives us through every song just like a freight train.  And his snare drum sounds like a firecracker!

As Seen in The Knot Magazine

The dance floor was full from the first dance until the last dance

High Fidelity did a great job. The dance floor was full from the first dance until the last dance. We received many comments from guest on how good the band was. The special songs requested by the bride and groom were right on and any requests from guests were perfect. The band was very professional and the band leader did a great job as MC for the evening. Peyton was wonderful to work with and stayed in contact with the bride’s parents by phone and email. He answered any questions in a timely manner and guided us through the entire process. Big thanks to Peyton.

They are an awesome band! It was an honor to work with them. They were professional, dependable and easy to communicate with. They are also VERY talented!

They made our night epic.
They played our wedding reception, and were amazing. They absolutely nailed our special request songs, as well as all the songs they already had in their repertoire. We loved them, and our family and friends loved them. My wife and I are 100% satisfied with our choice of bands. They made our night epic.
– Brian J…Wedding Groom…September 2013

They put on a truly amazing show!

The band was outstanding from start to finish! I booked them for a very large conference at the Renaissance Austin Hotel where 1500 people attended. They put on a truly amazing show! We danced all night and the only downside was that it had to end! I highly recommend them and I know you will not be disappointed when you do!
– Andrea S….Corporate Event…September 2013


Thanks a million for making our reception such a blast! One guest called the party “legendary” and I attribute 90% of that to the rockin’ band! You guys are amazing!
– Lacy..Wedding Bride…..June 2013

Blown away by how great they sounded live

Peyton and the guys were absolutely amazing!! I knew they would be pretty good from the videos they sent, but we were all blown away by how great they sounded live. Everyone at the wedding kept telling us how great the band was and that it was the most fun they ever had at a reception. The dance floor was packed the whole night with guests dancing and jumping around. Their interaction with the crowd was a major factor for keeping everyone on the dance floor. They kept coming out into the crowd letting people sing along with them and they fed off of the crowd really well. You could not possibly be disappointed if you pick them to play at your event.
– Jean D….Wedding Bride..April 2013

They were a joy to work with!

They did an AMAZING job at our wedding reception!! From beginning to end, my entire experience with them was incredible. Unlike so many other bands, the guys in Detroit Steel are fantastic at keeping in communication with their clients; whenever I emailed them I got a response back within a few hours at most. They were a joy to work with. At the wedding reception they had EVERYONE out on the dance floor. I can’t even count the number of compliments I got on our choice of band, everyone from my 87 year old grandma to my 6 year old flower girl was out on the dance floor. If you want a fun, professional band who puts on an incredible show, HIRE HIGH FIDELITY!!!
– Katie P…Wedding Bride…March 2013

Very reasonably priced!

I hired them based off of their website, and they were INCREDIBLE!!! They made our wedding night the most fun wedding EVER!!! They knew TONS of songs, sounded amazing, and learned some requests that we had especially for us! Very reasonably priced, too! The band can make or break a wedding, and they DEFINITELY made our day
