Marcella Frazier brings a powerful and dynamic voice as well as a shining personality to front the band. Marcy has years of professional singing and training as well as a love for many varieties of singing styles which, influence the groups eclectic set list. Marcy is the voice, the heart and soul of the band. Marcy's love of performing is easily noticed and her ability to interact with the crowd is a gift that cannot be learned.
Chris Gustin is the proverbial "glue that holds it all together", behind the drum kit. Chris' straight ahead style adds a strong, steady rhythm that propels the band through everything from hard rock, country, top 40 and dance/disco songs. Chris has years of experience in successful cover bands such as "Tom Foolery", "Smoke Showing", and many other local groups. Chris also lends his unique vocal styling to a few lead songs and many, many harmony parts.
Rick Rose is another cover band veteran and one of the most diverse bass players on the South Shore. Rick has an understanding of music down to its most primal level. His onstage persona is fun, electric and really translates well to the audience. Rick has played with the likes of "Kick The Cat" and "Woot". Rick's early carreer consisted of may original bands playing in and around Boston. He's been know to visit the west coast and play with people such as Mike Bordin (Faith No More, Ozzy), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), and Matt Nathanson (solo singer/song writer with a platinum - selling song). Rick also has a great vocal range with amazing falsetto abilities which bring depth and layers to the songs that allow the band to recreate the harmonies making each song identical to its original version.
Rich Gagne not only plays both electric and acoustic rhythm and lead guitars but, also helps out with lush harmonies. Rich is a "Blues" man at heart but, he is so well versed and chameleon-like in adapting and mimicking sounds, riffs and solos. Rich has been known to dabble with a variety of other instruments as well. Rich has a stoic stage presence that truly conveys how deeply the music moves him.
Rounding off the lineup is Mark Silvia, a diverse multi-instrumentalist that plays the second guitar role, splitting rhythm and lead duties but, also plays keys, woodwinds and the occasional bass guitar.
