Margaret McGilvray: While in San Francisco, Margaret studied piano under Tom Constantin- early keyboard player for the Grateful Dead, ethnomusicology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and played in community Indonesian Gamelan Orchestra. The orchestra combined minimilist, metalic, orchestral sounds with experimental trance music at underground gatherings. Her greatest influence is her grandmother, who played ragtime piano. Other influences include keyboard players Richard Barbieri (Porcupine Tree) Rick Wright (Pink Floyd) and Keith Godcheaux (Grateful Dead) and multi-instrumentalist/recording artist P.J. Harvey.

Bruce Malley: Bruce grew up overseas, and began playing acoustic guitar at age 13. Playing mainly by ear and improvisation, and having played in various bands over the years, his ability increased a great amount. Using Gibson, Mesa boogie, several delay pedels and other effects, Bruce adds both rhythmic color and soaring leads to the Calamus sound.

Aaron Waltz: numerous bands in high school, later played in Manchester-Nashua New Hampshire area, an acoustic duet called Crockpot Donkey, cover band Strawboss, and now the original band Calamus. "Calamus seemed like a great outlet to be able to express my skills as a percussionist!"
