is composed of a bunch of hard-working individuals who, between them cover all the gigs on the tour that never ends.

On Lead Guitar & Vocals - Tim!

Tim founded the band way back in 1982...in 1989 he released the album ROCKET EYES and went on to open for such acts as the Johnny Winter and the Good Rats. Tim's influences include Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters , Robert Johnson as well as Hendrix, Clapton and Robin Trower. In addition the full band Tim fronts an all blues version of the Wheel.

Gigging constantly, Tim has a well earned rep as the one of the hardest working musicians in CT. and is well known for his dynamic style of playing.

 

I played bass & guitar and handled 90% of the vocals with Timi, AKA Murry during the seventies and early 80's. I quit the band to open up a stupid music store.  Murry is still Rockin and I'm workin' 12 hours a day.  Maybe I should have stayed in the band
