JOHN GAWLE - Guitar, vocals
The opening guitar riffs on 'I Wanna Hold your Hand' drove John to start guitar lessons at age 9. He honed his rock licks by spinning Santana, Black Sabbath and Bad Company LPs. John formed his first band, Cold Rolled Steel, in high school, gigged with Bob and Ron in Horizon, and continues to play – sometimes for nothing other than pure pleasure - to this day.
THOMAS WITTE - Guitar, vocals
Tom returns to his adult hometown of the Chicago area after nearly a decade in California, where he played Latin-infused R&B with the Groove Masters. Tom’s musical interests range across rock, soul, blues, and R&B. Although guitar is his lifelong passion, he dedicates himself to family, and occasionally his other lifelong hobby, SCUBA diving.
BOB "THE SAXMAN" KUNTZ - Sax and Vocals
Bob picked up his first sax at age 10, and has been playing in rock and jazz bands ever since. He met up with Tom in a band called Hidden Agenda. If he's not jammin' with the boys, you might find him tuning up his '68 Olds or figuring how to bug out for another Colorado ski trip.
RON RYSELL - Drums, Congas, Percussion, vocals
Ron began playing drums in high school, and has played drums and percussion with various bands since then. He enjoys nearly all types of music, and started collecting LPs as a young lad, which evolved into CDs, and now an extensive iTunes collection.
DARRYL ARMISTEAD - Keyboards and Vocals
Darryl started piano lessons at age 4 and began playing professionally at age 12. Darryl has been a bandleader for a variety of bands in the Midwest for the past 35 years. He also worked as a theatre musical director for many years in Indianapolis. If he’s not jamming with the band, you might find him running marathons around the country.
TOM HULL - Bass Guitar
Tom originally played keyboards before discovering his true passion for bass over 20 years ago. Since then, he has played with several bands and enjoys groovin’ with covers from the 60’s to today. He is the band webmaster and a technical geek. Tom (a.k.a. 'The Doc') is actually a doctor of nothing!
