Steven moved to Texas from Hawaii 10 years ago. He has been playing in bands for 20 years and is an extraordinary guitarist. He can play just about anything with a unique ability to cover both leads and fills as the bands only guitarist. His strongest influences are the blues greats and he also carries lead vocals on a number of songs in addition to providing excellent harmonies.
Wade started in music over 30 years ago as a guitarist before discovering his true calling as a bassist 10 years ago. Since that time, he has explored musical styles as diverse as jazz, progressive rock, funk and soul, but sees blues based rock as his musical foundation. Wade has been providing rock solid rhythm and keeps the band focused on bringing music with Texas roots.
Robert started in music 20 years ago as a classically trained tuba player before finding the drums at age 15. Hailing from Northeast Tennessee, Robert has been behind the kit in a variety of bands including rock, blues, metal, and even a 40-piece jazz ensemble. He draws inspiration from swing and New Orleans style jazz with roots in classic rock and alternative rock.
