The Other White Meat (TOWM).
Holding down the bottom end is Chad “Lamb Chop” Thorne . Chad, a natural right-hander, switched to playing guitar lefty as a result of an injury many years ago. In the midst of that process Chad also found his true "musical voice," the electric bass. He has now played that instrument, thankfully and joyfully, for a number of years in a variety of musical contexts. Chad is happy to be "bringing the funk" with PTOWM. Beware if you borrow his axe, it's not a mirage, he's a lefty.
Marc Perez comes from a checkered and simultaneously remarkable past. His life drove him to hit things for a living resulting his channeling this need into a creative ouvre he now overwhelms. Marc is a seasoned drummer that has played throughout the New England music scene for 20 years with various jazz, blues, country and rock bands. Blues is his favorite music to play but easily mends and blends into any musical style. BUT NOW...he is, ostensibly a 'white meat'. His first teacher John Anter who studied under the legendary session great Bernard Purdie said to always "groove" when playing and that's exactly what Marc does on every gig and recording he does.
Marc is an all around nice guy. If you know of a fishing hole, ring him up.
Thom 'The Hurricane' Hanes' roots as a harmonica player and musician extend to the deep south. He's played all over Louisiana, Texas, Georgia and plenty of time in a little town called Chicago. His playing brings those flavors of the blues to life, sometimes snarling, sometimes wailing, and sometimes crying.
While driving an unforgettable beat is their trade, these men comprise the rock solid rhythm section that is the hallmark of dance music around the world.
Rusty Beckett: A man with a trusty feel for the blues and more. Rusty sits in with regularly at the blues jam and beyond. Thanks Rusty!
|Steven Forest Hamblen: A pros pro brings a wealth of experience, feel and a groovin backbeat to the blues and all the other genres we perform. Come listen and see how they do it down south|
|Duane Asdourian: From the time he discovered and then jammed with Poppa Chubby, Duane has brought a wicked intensity to the harmonica. He's more than the Mississippi Saxophone.|
Cam Gray: Drummer par excellence. Don't let his young demeanor fool you he blueses up the place like a man twice his age.
Bub Lynch: Bub makes it easy to play the blues. He's the ultimate professional who brings his A-game every night.
