He loves the musicianship of 80's guitarists like Eddie Van Halen and Randy Rhoads but also appreciates the raw style and emotion of 90's and 00's bands like Alice in Chains and A Perfect Circle. When he's not playing rock music, Tim is usually spending time with his family or soaking up some sun by the beach.
JOE RUGGIERO - BASS
Joe has been playing in venues around Baltimore since 2009. His favorite part about music is the unique ability it has to bring people together and help them through life's highs and lows.
