Rattlesnake Shake / Bio

Jonna Garcia - Vocals

Originating from Kansas, Jonna's first love for music came from her mother's 45's. Jonna sang in church groups where she could sing out loud in the safety of numbers. There she learned to mimic the styles and vibrato in her fellow singers while finding her own way. From there she listened to Pop radio and advanced to Karaoke singing, this time in the safety of home! Fast forward to 2006 when she packed up all she knew in Kansas and moved to San Jose to marry Greg Garcia. Soon, she would discover the blues and the voice of the "late, great Magic Sam". That and an Etta James concert at the local venue sealed the deal. Koko Taylor and Lou Ann Barton have also greatly added to her influences of "story telling". Jonna now fronts "Rattlesnake Shake" with her clear and heartfelt voice. For her, it's all about the song.

Greg Garcia - Guitar

Originating in Southern California Greg was extremely fortunate to have an older brother with a passion for music. His brother Steve played guitar, sax, and clarinet. This greatly influenced Greg so he took up the trumpet in 4th grade where he learned to read music. In grammar school he was exposed to a multitude of rock and jazz music but Hendrix’s “Axis: Bold As Love” and “Chicago Transit Authority” LPs opened his ears to amazing sonic possibilities.

Tim Dry - Guitar

Born and raised in the "deep south" of England, guitarist Tim Dry was
schooled in the Shadows, Yardbirds, Cream, Zeppelin and all the British Rythmn and Blues (RnB) bands that aped after the US originators. Tim played in several classic rock cover bands in the UK before moving to the US with his day job. In San Jose CA, Tim met many like minded folks with a love for all things "Blues and Roots" music.

Darrel Brokeshoulder - Bass

Coming from a small town in Arizona, Darrel Brokeshoulder’s first exposure to music was the country music from the only radio station in town. Later, a step brother provided the avenue to rock and blues, through his huge record collection. The biggest record to make an impact was the Allman Brother’s “Live at Fillmore East” album. Now, Darrel provides the low end to the drums to provide the foundation for the band.

Starting May 2013 - Bio coming soon.
