For Felix Pastorius, music is a family tradition. His grandfather, "Jack" Pastorius, was a stand-up jazz drummer, who sang while he swang. Felix's dad was legendary bassist, "Jaco" Pastorius.  Felix has toured world-wide with the Yellowjackets. He's earned his place, learned to navigate, and he's here to take you for a ride.

Mike Clark

A true ambassador of rhythm, Mike Clark is known around the world for his diverse and innovative playing. He brings that spark to whatever genre-- blues, funk post bop--he encounters, ignites a fire, and fans the flames. He  gained worldwide recognition as one of America’s foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters in the early seventies. His incisive playing on Hancock’s “Actual Proof” garnered him an international cult following and influenced generations of drummers. His versatility led him to a two-year stint with Brand X, the British jazz/rock fusion band founded by Phil Collins. With them he recorded “Do They Hurt?” and “Product.”
