Eric Parker, has played with Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Bonnie Raitt, Ian Hunter and Lou reed and is very active in the Hudson Valley Studio Recording scene, He’s bringing his friend Brian Mitchell and Big Joe Fitz bands to start the evening off.
Nick Parker has played in Orleans, Todd Rundgren, Mood Ring, Robbie Dupree and for Happy Traum’s Instructional dvd’s. He also composed all the music for High Five video games in the last 5 years. He’s going to be a "free radical ion" going from band to band adding his percussion and drum spicing to everyone’s grooves.
