First, we want to give a shout out and heartfelt thanks to all the former Hickies and potential Hickies for your past participation... without your dedication and support while keeping the infection spreading, we couldn't be here now!!! THANKS!
A little history...
Je'taime has been singing since she was able to speak; at age of 5, she started her career path singing Mr. Sunshine to cheer up the family... shortly after moving on to emulate Michael Jackson on her fisher price cassette player. She has since grown into her own voice, following the footsteps of the likes of Ann and Nancy Wilson, Stevie Nicks, Pat Benatar, and Aretha Franklin. From her humble beginnings of a shy church choir girl.... something WICKED your way comes!
Tony started his musical career at the age of eight performing as an organ grinder for tips and bananas. “I really like bananas so the keyboard was just a natural progression” says Tony. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he’s been a part of many band projects over the years and has rocked the keys throughout the LA area... playing many of the most infamous locales ;)
At age 8, Remi built his first bass out of a shoe box and different sizes of rubber bands. He shortly thereafter delayed his musical career goals due to a rubber band shortage at home, until his parents got him his first steel string bass at age 16. He played his first show at age 17 and hasn't stopped since! From just a cozy gathering in the living room to crowds of thousands, his crazed enthusiasm will definitely entertain!
Shawn started playing guitar a bit later in life at the age of 9. He swears he was heavily influenced by Ace Frehley's chrome boots and smoking Les Paul. By emulating his heroes, he has come to develop his own truly unique style and sound. His antics on stage are the stuff of legends... pushing the envelope is what this guy has for breakfast. Come check him out if you don't believe me!
Chico got his first real drum set at age 13, and started jamming to the likes of Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Slayer, etc. At age 17, his first "real" gig was in an arena in Reno in front of thousands of people, "What a rush, I could do that forever!" From then on, he has been in a multitude of bands, honing his skills, ready for the next opportunity to play on stage in front of thousands of people. His motto is "Have a good time, all the time!" and when you hear his dynamic drumming style, you can be sure a Good Time is to be had by All!
