Russ Vazquez - Bass
Russell Vazquez is the bass player for My Dad's iPod. He also plays bass for OMANI and Louisiana Rain and has been playing music since the age of eight. During the 70's 80's and 90's as a member of the bands Windjammer, Aryon and Doug led to him to perform in such legendary Bay Area clubs as The Keystone (Palo Alto, San Francisco) and the Mabuhay Gardens. When Russ was in hard rocker Aryon he recorded and toured in support of their album Rebels Of The Night, which enjoyed airplay on radio stations KSJO and the legendary KOME. In addition to playing bass and singing harmony, he also plays guitar and keyboards. Getting back into music in the mid 2000's, Russ has shared the stage with such notable artists as Don Carlos, The Itals, Edi Fitzroy, Winstrong, and Mystic Man, and has also performed at events with artists like Kymani Marley, Israel Vibration, Big Mountain, Prezident Brown, and many more.
Jim Brock - Drums
Jim Brock is the new kid in town -- he is an upbeat guy who is always happy to lay down a groove. Hailing from the country of Texas, he grew up playing and writing music (when he wasn't herding cattle, of course). Wanting to explore music and technology, Jim hopped in his wagon and headed West. He approached My Dad's iPod in the hopes of making friends that shared his passion for music. Instead, they took his lunch money and gave him a wedgie. After a myriad of auditions, tantrums, and threats, the band eventually let Jim play drums for them. Although his dad owns a Zune, Jim is proud to be a part of My Dad's iPod.
