Kip Amore - Bass, Vocals
Not much is known about Kip's early years, other then he won a spelling bee at age 19, he had two speeding tickets, and he was a member in good standing of the Columbia Record and Tape Club. We also have vague indications that he is a match chess player, belongs to a synchronized swimming team, has had his home featured in House Beautiful magazine, may have worked for NASA, was somehow involved in or responsible for the Bay-of-Pigs incident, and is an ordained orthodox Rabbi. Top doctors at the Emo Phillips Institute for Medical Science have been working on a new surgical technique and hope some day to be able to "unlock" Kip's brain and memories. We as an adoring fan base will have to wait till that day to get the true story, and for now Kip's history must remain an enigma.
Erik Diaz - Drums & Percussion
Erik Diaz began his career as a drummer at the age of 11, filling in for his overbooked father. Since then, he has somehow managed to stay employed by faking his way through many styles from polka to metal, soukous to swing, bossa nova to be-bop… you get the point. He spent five years as the drummer for Hot Tuna (featuring Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Cassady of Jefferson Airplane). Other career highlights include playing with such artists as: John Paul Jones (yes, that John Paul Jones), Warren Haynes, Oteil Burbridge, G. E. Smith, David Bromberg, Buddy Cage, Pete Sears, and Larry Coryell.
