John Stocks, Guitar/Dobro/Banjo/Harmonica/Vocals ---

A native of Minneapolis and former music shop owner, John played in a myriad of Midwest bands before migrating West. John has played with a number of local Portland bands, including Fez Fatale and Da Funk. Multi-instrumentalist, prolific songwriter, and a singer with a soulful, story-telling voice make John a real triple threat.

Mike Smith, Guitar/Vocals ---  

Mike grew up in and around San Francisco where he worshipped at the altar of Jerry and was heavily influenced by the inventive bluegrass styles of locals David Grisman and Peter Rowan. Mike has played in numerous Portland area bands, including a long time fixture on the local live music scene, Mystic Canyon.

Duane Ransom, Upright Bass/Vocals ---   

Duane is a real pro, having played bass in California bands that opened for the likes of Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor and Poco. Since moving back to Oregon many years ago, he has played with popular local bands Soul Vaccination, Cowboy Heroes, Soul Search, and My Girl Whiskey.

Bryan Owens, Mandolin/Fiddle/Guitar/Vocals ---

Originally from Maryland, Bryan has been a performing musician and multi-instrumentalist for much of his life. His eclectic taste in music is reflected in his work with rock bands, jazz groups, vocal choirs, musical productions, folk groups, Irish musicians, singer/songwriters as well as a history of solo guitar performance. Over the past few years he has recorded and performed with Nina Lane, Cassandra Robertson, Kafana Klub, The Left Coast String Band, Heathen Collective, Kendálin, Mistral and Terracoustic.
