Currently, you can also find Bill playing with "The Numbers Band" (since 1990), "Hillbilly Idol" (since 1990), "Alex Bevan" (since 1988) and "Clearfork" (since 1990). Some of you may remember seeing Bill perform with "The Damn Band" (1991), "Reckless Abandon" (1987), "Mimi Hart & The Bopkats" (1984-86), "Deadly Ernest & The Honky Tonk Heroes" (1981-84), "Gopher Broke Swing Band" (1977-1981), "Smackinrrouge" and "Better 'n Bacon Band" (pre 1977).

Roy King has had the pleasure of performing with living legends like Mose Allison, Bucky Pizzerelli, Eddie Bo, Johnny Gimble and Jay McShann to great local heroes such as Alex Bevan, the Gopher Broke Swing Band, pianists Mike Petrone and Joe Hunter. Roy currently teaches drums and percussion at Woodsys Music in Kent and Medina, as well as leading his own jazz trio which plays at Nighttown in Cleveland, Ohio.  "I always wanted to be a beatnik and a playboy.", says Roy. " Now I can be both!"

Dave Huddleston is a lifelong student and lover of music. He is known locally as a vocalist, guitarist, and bassist. Born in Washington, DC, and raised in Cleveland, Dave grew up in a musical family and was exposed to a variety of music genres -- from Saturday Metropolitan Opera radio broadcasts, to Broadway musicals played on the family hi-fi, to pop tunes squeezed out of a tiny transistor radio tuned to WIXY 1260-AM. His influences are all over the map -- Bach, Artie Shaw, Elvis, the Temptations, the Beatles, Ella, 1960s TV themes, Gaetano Veloso, Chaka Khan, U2, the Bee Gees, the Isley Brothers, Frankie Valli, Ennio Morricone, Buck Owens. Dave sees every song and every gig as a chance for exciting explorations, always with an element of surprise.
