Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.

ABOUT

Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Chicago, R&B-style horn band. We play covers of dance tunes from mid-60's to current with emphasis on 70's. Pro and semi-pro musicians meet 2x/month in the South Bay area (Torrance-Inglewood). THIS BAND IS GOOD.

Our approach to each song we perform is to try to copy the song as closely as possible to the original recording. The detail with which we approach our songs is meticulous. This is not to say that there is no room for creativity. However, we use the original recording as the template.

Everyone has a regular day job. We play 6x/year for spare change.
If you used to play and miss it, this is for you.

We are currently auditioning for a sax/flutist and trumpet.
