BAND MEMBERS

Juliana has been surrounded by music since birth as her siblings were learning instruments and her father has always been in bands. She began her own musical education in Kindergarten with piano lessons followed by vocal instruction starting in second grade. In high school, she switched music teachers and began learning guitar and bass. Now in university pursuing a pre-medical degree, she spends her free time reading, with her dogs, or listening to bands like Queen, Green Day, Rancid, and The Beatles.

Guitar

Matty’s love of drums began as a toddler bashing on couch cushions while singing to The Ramones. He’s always loved performing and has played with house bands up and down the East Coast and as a studio drummer with local bands. His musical inspirations are the hard hitting sounds of The Foo Fighters, Blink 182, Tool and Green Day. A self-taught guitarist and bassist - you may see him come out from behind the kit for a bonus track now and then.  A '90's kid at heart, Matty loves jam sessions, going to concerts, playing basketball and biking with friends.

Drums, vocals

Mike, inseparable from his Gibson Les Paul, has been playing guitar since 2018. Some of his main influences are James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Brian May, SRV, and Johnny Winter. Aside from his Les Paul, he loves cars, live music, performing (obviously), and cheesesteaks. He loves mafia movies and would never pass up Svengoolie on Saturday nights.
