Jamie is our guitarist and music theorist extraordinaire from Provincetown. In addition to music he does lots of humanitarian work and is very involved in everything. Ken is our incredible drummer. We practice in his boat-house in Wellfleet. He is also part of the bands Leviathan and Skeeter and the Buzztones and is part of the Nauset High School Jazz Band and Percussion ensembles. Yoshi is our rock-solid bass player. He is an exchange student from Japan and an avid soccer player and sailor. Unfortunately, he has now returned to Japan. Arvid is our trumpet player from Truro. He's also the recording / technology guy [that's me] and plays classically with The New Osprey Brass Quintet and in recitals around The Cape. Tristan, our esteemed but often missed tenor sax player, hails from Wellfleet and does lots of musical stuff. He is very good. Both Arvid and Tristan are members of the Nauset High Jazz and Concert Bands. Jamie, Ken and Arvid are also members of the Nauset High School World Music Ensemble headed by the extraordinary Lisa Brown. Calendar: CDs:
