While lead guitarist, vocalist and musical director Geoff Schneider conjures the magic of Garcia, BB King and Santana, bluesy piano player Matthew “The Helm” Winthrop blends a little bit of Pig Pen, Keith Gotchaux and Brent Midland to bring depth and space to the mix. Paul Dunay takes no prisoners when he steps up to the mic to sing, infusing his rhythms with well-earned swagger. Bassist Ric LuBell has a style much like that of Phil Lesh and Jack Casady, and drummer JP Geoghegan provides the backbone of the band.
