Biography

Trish Shandor - Lead Vocals/Keys

No stranger to the Detroit Music Scene, this 3 time Detroit Music Award Winner can be heard singing a variety of styles all over the World with a chameleon like approach. She’s a little bit Country and a little bit Rock-n-Roll mixed with just the right flavor of bubble gum pop that is never studio produced and never Autotuned! While most singers in the World are busy in the studio being digitally edited, Ms. Shandor is very “old skool”, out singing live, and proving to the World that people can sing “in tune” without fancy computers. Trish sings in 6 languages and is fluent in Sarcasm, Pig Latin and Italian Broken English. In her spare time she is a teacher of Interpretive Dance and feels that all people with no dance talent should be able to express themselves in a way that doesn’t require choreography but allows it to be called Art. With that said, Trish encourages her fans to enjoy music that rocks their souls and express themselves through movement.

Jef Reynolds - Bass/Vocals

Doug Hamborsky - Guitar/Keys/Vocals

Doug's musical career began at age 12 around a very musical family (his sister had a Masters degree from Juliard in NYC). Doug met Jef while they were in college, when they were both retained as studio musicians. They formed the group The Fantasy Band and recorded their first album together. Doug has performed with many local groups including Jocelyn B, Bill Meyer, Street Life, The Chatterbox Band, Family Portrait, Vintage and the incorrigible and loveable Space Cadets. Known for flaming guitar solos and engagement with the audience, he is always a crowd pleaser. He maintains a home studio, where he continues to enjoy recording with friends, family and some of the hottest musicians in Detroit including MCM.

Bill Hulet - Drums

Bill began playing drums at the tender age of six, and studied drums under the late Ray Parker at the East Detroit Conservatory of Music. After attending Western Michigan University, majoring in music, he commenced touring throughout the Midwest with countless bands, an experience that has made him both resilient and aware. He also has a number of recording projects to his credit, most recently with the Magic Poetry Band.
