See our full bios on our About Us page.

Nicole Johnson – Lead Vocals

With powerful vocals and an expansive range, this is Nicole’s first foray into rock and pop music, and she (and the audience) are enjoying every second.

Dave Hawkins – Guitar

A seasoned veteran of the Kitsap and Puget Sound music scene, multi-instrumentalist Hawkins is featuring his gritty, crisp guitar playing is a pleasure to hear.

Regina “Reggie” Acosta – Keys

Also no stranger to the local music scene, Reggie Acosta lends a versatile skillset to the band with a wide variety of sounds to the group. From synth and harmonica effects to traditional piano, her playing adds the flare that makes playing ’80s New Wave possible as a 5-piece group.

Jon Briggs – Bass

Jon’s bass playing is not only proficient but prolific as well. He also plays for an ’80s Metal group, TeaZer, and his love of playing bass is only rivaled by his love of cut-off shirts.

Chris Ballah – Drums

Chris keeps the beat with impeccable accuracy and ensures we’re never getting too excited about playing for you all and going too fast. He’s also the keeper of the PA system, and sometimes our sound engineer as well. Chris has been playing drums since 1967.

The Music

From Journey and Led Zeppelin to Blondie, Tears For Fears, and Pat Benatar, we’ve got the ’70s, ’80s, and part of the ’90s pretty well-covered. Our sets are challenging, fun, and music you don’t tend to hear in every other cover band. See our full(ish) song list here.
