Marina Crouse is an emerging vocalist in the San Francisco Bay Area blues and jazz scene. Her early classical training is evident in a powerful, riveting style that pays homage to the songs she loves while making them wholly her own. Marina has performed locally with S.E. Willis & the Willing, Ruth Davies Blue's Thing, Danny Caron & the Good Hands Trio, Garth Webber, Tammy Hall, Jeff Massanari and Nancy Wright. Most recently she has just returned from performing for an entire month in New Orleans with the Danny Alexander Blues Band.

Known internationally for his signature tone, Garth Webber is a Berkeley-based guitarist/singer who has played with Miles Davis, Gregg Allman, Bill Champlin, Mose Alison, Robben Ford, Boz Skaggs, Merl Saunders, Bob Weir, Doctor John and others. His style is a mix of blues, jazz and rock. He has three Solo CD projects out and has played on many recordings for Bay Area artists. His style is modern but with a foundation in traditional blues.

Tony ‘Macaroni’ Lufrano earned his bona fides early in his career on coast-to-coast tours with The Whispers (highlighted by shows at the Apollo Theater.) Since then, Tony has gigged and recorded with a cavalcade of stars, including Boz Scaggs, Bonnie Raitt, Huey Lewis & The News, Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Robben Ford, Taj Mahal, Tommy Castro, Bill Champlin, Steve Miller, Joe Satriani, Carla Thomas, James Cotton, Bernard Purdie, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Linda Tillery, Eddie Money, Harvey Mandel, John Handy, Zigaboo Modeliste, Little Anthony & The Imperials, Earl King, Ernie K-Doe, Otis Clay, ‘Chinna’ Smith, Syl Johnson, Richard Berry, Johnny Johnson, Booker T Jones and many more. The last two years, Tony has toured with Frank Bey & the Anthony Paule Band.

Jon Otis, is the son of late great R&B legend Johnny Otis.

Most recently, Jon has toured Europe and the US with his brother, Shuggie Otis.

Holding down the bottom for the group is the madcap and madly talented Endre Tarczy on bass. Endre has worked with Robben Ford, Missing Man Formation, Chris Cain, John Wedemeyer and W.H.a.T., the critically-acclaimed White Album Ensemble and many more.
