The Flying Tortugas / Bio

From a recent January benefit show at KTUB in Kirkland: "Thank you guys for playing a killer show last night at my benefit concert! You guys rocked it and are such amazing and generous people! Thanks to everybody I was able to surpass my goal of $1,000! I can't wait to see more of your shows and I hope I can make it out tonight :)"

We are four musicians with varied musical backgrounds who have been together for several months working on original music. Our musical tastes vary almost as much as our ages. Our songs are solidifying as we continue to practice several times a week. Our sound is made from four distinct parts: Caroline's vocals bringing realism to the lyrics. Mike, on guitar, provides solid rhythmic pulses accentuated with timely and fitting solos. Bruce keeps the percussive sounds rolling with a great sense of dynamics and control. Jonny, the bass man, provides the underlying harmonic beat.

The songs each have a sound of their own...deriving their existence from our life experiences. We hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we love performing them.
