Scott Shepard-lead guitars and vocals-Originally from Bainbridge, Georgia, Scott has called Tallahassee home for many years. Some of his guitar influences are Edward Van Halen, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. He is also a talented multi-instrumentalist in playing bass and drums. In his leisure time he enjoys hunting, fishing and his girlfriend.



David Merck-bass guitars and vocals-Originally from St. Pete, David would sneak into his older sisters rooms to listen to LP’s of Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin and the Who while playing a mean tennis racket guitar. In 1981, after seeing Van Halen, David was hooked, playing guitar and bass in bands ever since. David’s influences include John Paul Jones, Jack Bruce and Geddy Lee. In his spare time David enjoys eating, sleeping and Kellie.


Tony Marquart-drums and backing vocals

When not working as a ballet instructor, crop dusting pilot or porn star, Tony's music has been a singular focus.  Playing in rock bands around Indianapolis, Charlotte and Nashville has laid the foundation for him to quickly settle into Tallahassee's music scene.
