Veteran songwriter/guitarist Rod Martin and musical collaborator Dave Weaver, have been performing together and separate for well over a quarter of a century. The duo first met 30 years ago at the University of N.C. at Charlotte, while earning their Bachelor of Creative Arts degrees in music. Rod dropped out for a year and played around the Carolinas with a rock band which opened for comedic genius Martin Mull and the "Ragin' Cajun" Doug Kershaw.
After graduating Dave returned to his hometown of
Greensboro, N.C. to work with a rockabilly group, while Rod pursued his rock and roll dream in Boston, where
he honed his solo act in the tough pubs of Revere Beach, and Chelsea, then returned to Charlotte.
In the early l990s Rod Martin ventured to Los Angeles as a hired session player and recorded on several CDs featuring former members of Frank Zappa's "Mothers of Invention", "Alice Cooper Group", "Hawkwind", "Gong" and "Capt. Beefheart", to name a few. Also slated for release in late 2009, Martin will be featured on a new CD featuring former members of
Todd Rundgren's Utopia , Yes, and Focus.
Along with recording his first solo album, 2009 sees Rod Martin reuniting with former bandmate Dave Weaver as an acoustic duo under the guise "Sons of Blackbeard". Both Martin and Weaver are excited about the prospect of touring together and thrilling audiences once again as they have done in the past.
