Barry Blum on bass guitar, guitars, keyboards and vocals has distinguished writing and musical credits to his name that include songwriting, performances, recordings, commercials, and film soundtracks. Barry graduated with honors from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor’s of Art in Biology. His love of music and all things audio comes naturally as he was born in San Francisco to successful “show biz” parents and came of age during the 1960’s listening to the sounds of the Beach Boys and the Beatles. In the 80’s Barry had his “Barry Beam Band", dance hit, Jump Shout (#2 US), and now also performs with 60’s rock trio Revolver. His newest passion is documentary film making which has led him to developing a feature focusing on a rock band, Rock the Ages, he directs made up of seniors residing in an assisted living center in Marin County, California.

Formerly the front man of San Francisco Bay Area rock band Chequered Past, Tom Holmes is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter. The son of a Jazz trumpet player from the Mississippi delta, Tom was born and raised surrounded by music. He gave his first performance at age 6, playing an original song on piano in a popular Chicago club. Tom studied vocal arts with Judy Davis in Oakland California and does session and voice-over work. A founding member of The Liddypudlians, a popular Marin County 25-piece Beatles tribute ensemble, Tom is also one-half of the Rant Brothers acoustic duo and has performed with many other bands and artists.
Singer/songwriter and guitarist Tom Huebner’s music features compelling harmonies, rock guitars and original songwriting. Born in Arizona and raised in Southern California, Tom resides in Marin County, California and fuses rock, folk, blues and country influences to craft his songs. Tom grew up loving the pop melodies and harmonies of bands like The Beatles and Byrds, as well as the guitar riffs of bands like the Rolling Stones. Later with the advent of the late 60's and early 70's, his ear turned toward much of what was then happening in the L.A. and Northern California country-rock scenes with artists and bands like Gram Parsons, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Poco, The Eagles, Neil Young, the Grateful Dead and classic country artists like Merle Haggard, Willy Nelson and Waylon Jennings. More recently acclaimed songwriters like Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams and Dave Alvin round out his influences. Tom co-founded the Bay Area band Key Lime Pie with his long-time friend Evan Palmer in 1989 and was instrumental in the production of the group’s first independent release, entitled Cookin’, in 2000. He also co-produced and released his first solo effort, the country-inspired Highway 43, on indie label Camel Records.
