Their roster is as diverse as it is impressive with Chris Cloutier on lead vocals and guitar, Oscar Hernandez also on lead vocals and guitar, Keith Westheimer on bass guitar and Tyler Gustafson on drums. Chris has been playing guitar for 16 years, and it shows...he appreciates both blues and classical styles and has 12 years of stage performance under his belt. Oscar or "Oz" balances the music with a pop/rock guitar sound, a heavy acoustic background, and has been playing guitar for 8 years. Keith has been holding down the low end on bass for 12 years in bands all over the world and considers his bass his left hand. Tyler is also a veteran of the live music circuit, and although the newest member of the band, is a rock-solid influence.
