P-Bone - Vocals, Guitar
P-Bone first played music with his father's swing/cubano trio at age 3 (pots, pans, & wooden spoons). He has performed as a professional musician since age 13.
P-Bone studied electro/accoustic composition at San Jose State University under Dr. Strange.
He loves anything wet, wild, curvaceous, and slightly out of control.
P-Bone doesn't believe in underwear.
T. Rollin - Guitar, Vocals
Ted Welty (T. Rollin), guitarist and singer/songwriter, is best known as co-founder of 1990s alternative rock band Iguana Jive. The group was signed in 1994 by indie label, Maddog Record, and went on to record their first album at A&M studios. A second album was recorded and released in 1997.
Special message to bar owners: Ted acts as our manager. If you're thinking about shorting us gig money, think twice. Ted is a karate master, having studied with Chuck Norris.
Dave - Bass, Vocals
Dave is a renaissance man. Not only does he kick ass on bass and on-target vocals, but sets up and manages the PA system. When he's not melting your face off with his "it's all about the bass" licks, he is the Chief Scientist at Universal Audio, consulting professor at CCRMA at Stanford, and just a great all-around dude! By the way, Dave thoroughly enjoys a good foot massage.
Tenacious Z (Andy Ziker) - Drums, Vocals
As a young child, Andy banged on pots and pans with wooden spoons in South Bend, Indiana, and of course his mother was not too pleased. Soon after, he and his brother began writing songs in their basement crawlspace, with pet gerbils as their only audience. Andy started played professionally at the age of 13, and soon joined forces with Dave Berners, current bass player of Spun. (Andy and Dave have been good friends since first grade.) Andy is a now a full-time musician — performing, teaching, and writing about drums. He never smiles when he plays, so be sure to cheer him up the next time you see him.
