John B: Guitar
Lead & Rhythm Guitar has been John’s forte for at least 35 years. With the start of a few lessons at a young age, he has played many Connecticut musical venues. His guitar work adds the glue to the overall musical arrangements of the band, lending some harmonica and vocals as well. His heavy influence of Rock, Blues & Funk puts excitement into every note he plays. His arsenal of guitars can fit any tone a song may require.

Bart Bruno: Bass
Bart began playing bass in his late teens, experienced a long hiatus after college, and picked it up again in his 30’s. He has been in a number of bands, co-founding River Jack in 2004 and remaining with that band until October of 2010, and has played in blues, wedding, faux metal, and rock projects of different types. He is also involved in Christian Rock projects. In time he hopes to learn keyboard and bagpipes. Bart has cited Ray Brown, Willie Dixon, Donald “Duck” Dunn, James Jamerson, Billy Cox, Dave Brown, Chris Squire, Glenn Cornick, Mike Watt, Greg Norton, and Andy Roarke as among the many bassists he admires.
