Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist and producer Bernie Larsen has lived a charmed musical life for many years. He has recorded, toured, and produced an elite handful of artists most of which are Grammy Award recipients including Melissa Etheridge, Jackson Browne, Rickie Lee Jones, Lucinda Williams, and Public Enemy. He also spent six years as an original member of David Lindley’s legendary band El Rayo-X.A versatile player, Larsen is heard on guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocals; but, according to Vintage Guitar Magazine, his “strength is rhythm...the term ‘rock-steady’ could have been invented for him.” Dan Forte
Kevin McCormick is a groove master on the 4 and 5 string and plies harmonic extensions which fortify the soloists, singers, and their songs. McCormick’s resume is quite impressive, collaborating with artists including Nils Lofgren, Jackson Browne, Melissa Ethridge, Robben Ford, John Mayall, Keb’ Mo, Crosby Stills & Nash, The Rides with Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepard, and Barry Goldberg – to cite a select few.

Skabone Stan, as his name implies, is a trombone player like no other! He has made a name for himself in Ventura County playing with Stonefly's, The Barrelhouse Wailers, Kyle Smith, Demolition Crew, and Ruf & Ready Horns to name a few.
