Grammy Award winner C Lanzbom is a touring and studio guitarist with producing, performing, writing and engineering credits with Pete Seeger, Bruce Springsteen, American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox, Shlomo Carlebach and Soulfarm. C's studio, Sherwood Ridge, is a state of the art recording facility just north of New
York City. C has numerous television and film song placements. His affection and passion for Jerry Garcia's music has been a major influence. He has absorbed Israeli-Arabic musical rhythms from travelling in the region as well as the rock and roll he grew up with along the Jersey shore.
Through his work with jazz diva Cassandra Wilson, Haynes has evolved into more than “just” a percussionist. Stints with Pat Metheny, Peabo Bryson, Dionne Farris, Harry Belafonte, Lizz Wright, and others have left their mark on Haynes. His hand drum/drumkit hybrid evolved over the course of his long musical tenure with Wilson. As kit drummers have come and gone, Haynes is consistently called upon for rhythmic stimulation, support, and color.
Kerr is a resonator steel guitarist, classical guitarist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and educator based in the NYC/Connecticut area.As a sideman or ensemble member Kerr has performed at notable NYC venues - Irving Plaza, The Knitting Factory, Gracie Mansion, Trinity Church, The Wetlands, Symphony Space, as well as the Juilliard School and Yale University. He is a soloist with the Mobile Symphony Orchestra and performs at festivals nationwide.
Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and arranger, Lister's been pickin' guitar for 30 years in a style that is a practical blend of finger-picking and flat-picking with a solid rhythmic feel. Pete writes in multiple genres with lyrical content ranging from heart-felt to heart-broken to humorous. Aside from his work as a hired gun, he is a full-time member of 3 North Jersey bands including Big Boss Sausage, Joe Cirotti Trio, The Hawk Owls and the Binghamton based band Milkweed.
