Come to a show and have a rockin’ good time!

Matt Tidmarsh, the courageous leader of Spinout, first started playing the up right bass at the tender age of 10. After seeing how fun the electric bass was joined the San Francisco original music scene. After a short stint as an Elvis impersonator in Japan, Matt became a founding member of the popular cover bands Super Diamond and Tainted Love.

Stewart Burr, started playing drums at age 10. Stewart attended Cal St. Northridge and later transferred to Sonoma St. where he graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies.

In fall 1999 Stewart relocated to New York where he got the gig with the legendary Chubby Checker.
