Lead Singer/Rythm Guitar
English born lead singer songwriter Adam Lawson grew up in the USVI giving a rise to a passion of all things reggae. Original songs ring with life experience, relationships and melodic poetry. Songs have apparent undertones of jazz (influenced by his fathers affinity to the genre), rock and reggae.
Lead Guitar Daniel Vos
An MI graduate Daniel Vos' bone crushing solo's have put this South Bay Band on the map! The self admitted Zep head brings the rock 'n' roll to the LA South Bay with clever licks and a screaming Les Paul that has to be seen to believe!
Percussion/Vocals Alonso Vargas
South Bay legend Alonso brings a percussive and vocal threat to the group that encourages spines to tingle and booties to be shaken! No stranger to the big stage he played bass with other South Bay band "Dread Star" who enjoyed nationwide success.
Bass/vocals Rusty Walters
An MI graduate as well, Russ's reggae bass lines provide the back bone to this South Bay bands vibe! His feel in the pocket and bouncy melodic tones really amp up the crowd. He combines with Adam and Alonso to provide euphoria inducing three part harmonies.
Trumpet Eitan Avineri
Eitan's melodic horn harmonies are what separate this group from the pack! Leader of the popular Ska tribute band "Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra", its safe to say he brings the sexy!
