Ron: Surfing the lines between classic rock, jazz, and full on brass party percussion street music. Hard or soft, does it all.
Davin: Spends most of his time at music festivals, or visiting Croatia. Full on kit drums or hand percussion jamming, he stands between the rhythm and horns spiritually and literally.
Kevin: Cut his teeth in salsa bands, theatre, and the Wednesday Night Big Band, where Marco overheard him singing. Trumpet and vocals, but rarely at the same time!
