Biography

David Yeager
have had more fun, met more great people, and learned more about music and equipment than I ever imagined when Jim and I got started. We've been at this since 2000, and it seems to keep getting better all the time. Playing music with a bunch of people who are having a good time...what could be better!

My first gig was playing the drums for the Strange Faces back in my (and Jim's) hometown of Saugerties, NY. I started when I was fifteen and kept going with it for about ten years, up to the mid nineties.

My next stint was as the front man for the Dave Yaeger Band playing guitar and singing. Thanks to my mentor Craig Najjar I was able to step out from behind the drums and sing (outside of the shower, that is).

After the Dave Yaeger Band wore out, Jim and I decided to ramp up our occasional jam sessions, develop a song list, and who knows, maybe even get a gig. From the beginning we said we'd keep playing together as long as it was fun, and with that business plan we've been rolling ever since.

We are always tweaking our sound, and over the years we have tried a number of different instrument lineups. For a while now we've settled on a combination of guitars, congas and shakers, and as much harmony as we can muster. I wonder what will come along next...

Jim Schulze
I just love to play guitar and sing. Hanging out with this bunch of characters, making music and laughing is about as good as it gets.

Started playing in the basement when I was about 12, garage bands...Uncle Funk and the Electric Cafeteria, Atlantis...we were also refered to as Al Antis because we made a typo on the business cards! Played alot of Bad Company, Frampton, America, Eagles, etc.etc. where is the funk?

Off to the Navy for Uncle Sam in 1980 and switched to acoustic guitar, never really looked back though I wish I could solo every now and then. Linked up with Dave and have grown confident and really enjoy playing out and having a great time. Looking forward to meeting new people and partying along with a great group of friends.
