Founded by Austin power duo Dan and Elyse Yates, LoudMouth Rentals provides quality professional-grade gear at competitive prices combined with exceptional customer service. Elyse grew up in the Austin music scene, underfoot while her mom, Jo Carol Pierce, and her dad, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, played and performed.
Dan Yates grew up in Lubbock, Texas where he started playing in rock and roll bands in junior high. In the mid-‘80s he played guitar for Eddie Beethoven and the Sons of Fun whose recordings were produced by his friend and hero Lloyd Maines. Eddie Beethoven wrote some of Joe Ely’s most popular songs like “Cool Rockin’ Loretta” and “Don’t Put a Lock On My Heart.” Dan moved to Austin in January of 1989 chasing Elyse Gilmore (now his wife Elyse Yates). In the early to mid-‘90s, in addition to his own band The Lords of Love, he has toured with his father-in-law Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Monte Warden. Dan then went on to earn a degree in civil engineering and work in water resources and river management until starting LoudMouth Rentals this year. Dan currently plays in a band with his friends called the Everydudes, and they just recorded and released a record for their old friend Eddie Beethoven.
