Drums, Vocals: Allan Bartlett was born in Tucson, AZ and got his first Snare Drum at the age of eight. After a few drum lessons, he wanted a complete drum set. Five years later, he finally got his first set! With more lessons and listening to records, Allan managed to learn to keep a beat...most of the time. Allan has been in multiple bands and is in great demand! In addition to "keeping the beat most of the time," Allan does a mean Don Henley and loves to perform antics to keep the audience entertained!
Bass, Vocals: Fred has been bottom feeding on music since his Jr. High school days in Philadelphia. Despite being one of the skinniest kids in the band, he played the tuba and the upright string bass (not at the same time)through high school. “I’m not a very predictable bass player, I tend to hop around a bit ‘cause I’m always looking for a better note or a better rhythm to fit the music”. Fred often consults his ‘inner tuba’ when approaching a new song and sometimes asks himself: what would Sousa do? In addition to sharing his bass mentality Fred sings the second or third harmony for the band, he’s never quite sure which one.
Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals: Walker is heavily influenced by acoustic guitar players such as Paul Simon, James Taylor and Steven Stills. I’ve never been a minute without loving to play. I was in bands as early as in Junior High school, and earned my spending money in college by playing as a duo. I moved to the Washington, D.C. area after college and played for about 6 years in a band called “Tucson.” After moving to the real Tucson, I became the Creative Director for a group of radio stations. Currently I’m lucky enough to be able to write and produce music for a variety of stores, restaurants, banks… you name it! It’s all about the music!
Guitar, Keyboard Vocals: Joe is the "farrest outest" member of the group, and the band member with the longest (and most) hair. Joe has been playing in bands back East, and we have yet to stump him on pretty much any musical style from any era (even tunes popular before he was born!) Joe is a walking encylopedia of musical knowledge, triva, and mimicry. One of the band's favorite sayings during practice is "Focus, Joe!"
Guitar, Vocals, Keys, Cello, Harmonica: Mike has played guitar since he was about twelve and bugged the teenage bass player next door to teach him a few chords. He sings and plays a variety of instruments, but mostly guitars. Mike has played in folk duos (Serres and Dina, Cox & Serres) trios (White Horse), high school garage bands (ZED), and a variety of other musical configurations. Mike has opened for a variety of major music acts including Chuck Berry, America, and the Beach Boys. Mike loves to play most kinds of music including jazz, country, classical, pop and rhythm and blues, but there's a special place in his heart for rock and roll. Because Mike loves harmony (in music as well as in life), he's not apt to play solo, since there's no one to harmonize with.
Lead Vocals, Tambourine: Mindy was born and raised in Tucson, surrounded by a multitude of very musical family members. She learned how to sing harmonies at a very young age, so she could hang out with the grownups at family parties. Mindy sang in school choirs and musicals, and at age 18 traveled with Up With People. She fell into professional singing at age 22 when one of her many cousins needed a female vocalist for his band. Since then, she’s enjoyed singing and touring with many different musicians, including a brief (but incredibly fun) stint singing backup for her aunt, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris on their Western Wall Tour. When Mindy’s not out singing, she spends her time driving her kids to and fro, wherever that may be...
