Collectively we have over a century of combined live rockin chops, from dive bars to near stadium gigs. A wide range of influence from Mile Davs, to Phish, to Zeppelin, etc have created an eclectic mix that always finds a way to rock the house.

V. Don Bogut III - keyboards and vocals
Musical influences include Miles, Little Feat, Dead, Phish, The Band.
Experience includes twenty years of jam bands, jazz bands, and, at the onset, singing "You Are My Shunshine," poolside to a gaggle of blue-hair Jewesses, in Miami, at age four. Sailors cap included.

Jon Chazen - bass guitar and vocals
A late bloomer, Jon started playing bass at the age of 17 in the frozen tundra of his hometown of Buffalo. He has recorded with Mitch's Infydels, One & Twenty, Gooseflesh, and sixty-five. His influences include Dave Barry, Barry Manilow, Pink Floyd, Phish, and of course the Dead. His favorite vegetable is broccoli. Jon is also a member of Wig Jam.

Sam Mann - rhythm guitar and vocals

Mike Stein - drums and vocals
A musician since five years old, and drummer since 1977, Mike has played in The Anywayz, StinkyPinky, The Noyes, Poppa Goulash, Honey Church,and most notably as a part timer in The Dharma Bums. Mike has always been a songwriter, and is an accomplished pianist, singer, and sound tech too. Breaking into the Jamband scene in 1997, he joined Mystery Train, whom he still performs with regularly. He was also with OSE, and then joined Alligator in early 2004. He is a Phish Head.

Jeff Tiedrich - lead guitar and vocals
Jeff took up the guitar in 1973 with the hopes that it would advance his popularity with those of the female persuasion. He expects this strategy will bear fruit any day now.

Stumpy - road manager
What can we say about Stumpy? Words alone cannot express the importance of the band's spirtual leader. Without Stumpy, there would be no Alligator. It's that simple.
