Bluze Theory / Bio

Brian Boyette, (Vocals/Guitar) - At the very young age of 8 years old, when other kids were enjoying play time with their friends, Brian Robert Boyette was discovering the guitar. It was around that time that he stumbled upon a Guild guitar in the back of his father’s closet and began a love affair with music that has transcended time and space and transformed him into the talented musician that he is today. He began his career in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he worked with talented musicians such as Danny Trout and Mike Skinner, early members of the Garth Brooks band. Brian toured the Midwest playing bass with country artists Southern Draw and Nashville artist, Glen Chisholm, who also gave Brian a chance to show off his vocal talent for the very first time. Brian is currently playing in Bluze Theory along with Rocky Trujillo, Stan Sirico and Bill Becker. When Brian is not playing music, he loves to spend his time buying, selling or trading musical equipment. An avid NASCAR Fan, he enjoys following the exploits of his favorite drivers, Kevin Harvick (Richard Childress Racing) and Kyle Busch (Joe Gibbs Racing) and spending time with his Golden Retriever, Alex.

Stan Sirico, (Lead Guitar/vocals) - Stan has had the privilege to play at Radio City Music Hall and Madison Square Garden, while performing with legendary artists such as The Angels, The Drifters, The Coasters, Del Shannon, The Shirelles, Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, among others. Stan has been described as one of the most humble bad-ass guitarists alive. For a musician with over 3 decades of experience, who still plays with bands such as The Angels, who had the #1 hit “My Boyfriend’s Back”, you would never meet a more down to earth musician. The man can play almost any song requested without giving it a second thought! His love of music came from listening to the Beatles at a very young age, but the biggest influences on his playing style have been Eric Clapton, Jimmy Hendrix, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. Just as with each of these great axe-men, everything Stan plays is rooted in the blues! Stan not only can play the guitar, but he also sings, plays bass, and rocks the drums from time to time. He also knows his way around the recording studio, having co-produced the latest CD released by The Angels. As can be seen, he is a very well rounded musician with the class and sophistication that can only come with time. When Stan is not awing us all with his guitar playing, he enjoys the game of paddle ball and also has a great love for America’s Favorite Past time, baseball. Stan has a hot wife whom he met playing with The Angels, as well as a daughter who recently graduated from film school and also plays the drums and piano.

Rocky Trujillo, (Drums/Vocals) - Rocky ‘Rawk T’ Trujillo has been drumming since he was 13 years old. After a nearly 10 year hiatus from playing 1983-1992 he returned with a vengeance, re-learning the drums and also learning to add lead and backing vocals to his chosen instrument. His fluidity and style can be attributed to a diverse musical taste, ranging from Industrial and Hard Core Metal, to Funk, R&B, Latin and Blues. His early influences include artists such as the inimitable Neil Peart from Rush, his best friend Tom Hunting of Exodus and just about anyone he could tune in to on the FM radio in his bedroom or his then-limited supply of vinyl. He credits his love of music to his father, a guitarist whose own joy of music was inspirational in his early developmental years. Not only does he play drums, but he also performs lead and backing vocals, sometimes allowing sit-in drummers to satisfy his deep rooted craving for center stage. Rocky has played with local bands such as The Peter Dunkin Group (Rock, R&B), The Groove (Funk, R&B), New Rajeem (Funk, R&B), The Model Americans (Rock, Rock-a-Billy) Brian Kehoe and the Kehoe Nation (RAWK), The Vibe Project (Acoustic Rock) and Bay Area Industrial Powerhouse PainFactor (Industrial Metal), LuvStoned (R&B, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop, Disco) and Bluze Theory (Blues/Rock). When he’s not sitting behind a drum kit or sitting on a Cajon, he enjoys fishing, road trips, checking out the local music scene and spending time with his wife and two beautiful daughters.

Bill Becker, (Bass, Vocals) - Bill began playing music at the age of nine, playing trumpet in elementary school. At age thirteen, Bill learned to play drums on his sister’s boyfriends drum set playing along to bands such as AC/DC and Rush. At age eighteen Bill discovered what would become his passion in life, bass guitar. He borrowed a friend’s three-quarter scale fender precision copy bass and immediately took to the instrument. Within two months he had purchased his first bass and amp and was playing in a three piece rock band with some friends. Bill’s key bass influences are Geddy Lee (Rush), John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Sting (The Police, Sting), Paul McCartney (The Beatles) and John Entwistle (The Who) among others. Bill has played or shared the stage with such notables as Joseph “Zigaboo” Modeliste of “The Meters”, Mark Karan of Bob Weir’s band “Rat Dog”, Sunshine Becker of “Furthur”, Joey Blake and David Worm of “Bobby McFerrin” and Ashling Cole of “Graham Central Station”. In 2011 Bill completed the Bass Specialist Certificate Program at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Bill’s current project is the SF Bay Area based Blues/Rock band “Bluze Theory”. When not performing or recording in his home studio, Bill loves spending time with his family. Bill is married to the love of his life, Sunshine, has a wonderful son Geddy, and an awesome pug, Kimock. As an avid Raiders fan, you’re likely to catch Bill tailgating with his family in the lot on Sunday’s during football season.
