Gary Brooker is a musician's musician, with an insatiable appetite for music. His first instrument was a viola, which whet his love of stringed instruments, but he didn't stop there. Over the years he has added a stable of instruments to his repetoir, including acoustic and electric guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukelele, flute, violin, piano and keyboards, plus a special fondness for drums and percussion of any kind. But his guitar work is particularly masterful. And unusually diverse. From sweet picking melodies that mesmerize to a red hot slide guitar, then licks and riffs that will sweep you into the story and leave you breathless.
Vallorie Hodges is not just the bass player and a vocalist, she has an entire second skin as the Dive Safety Officer for the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Master Instructor, Scientific Diver and Author, she has been inducted into the Women Diver's Hall of Fame, served on the Board of Directors for the American Academy of Underwater Sciences, worked as the West Coast Editor for Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine, tested scuba gear, and written numerous scientific papers and magazine
articles. She is an avid adventurer and traveler, leads overseas diving expeditions and holds dual US/Australian citizenship.
