Jasha McQueen Vocals, electric & acoustic guitars, harmonica, congas and percussion. Called "Queen Bee, " Jasha is a prolific composer of elegant ballads, songs of love and outrageous rockers.

Jeff Dunlap Vocals, electric lead and rhythm guitars. A writer of songs for dancing and dreaming, Jeff is a rock shouter who also sings love ballads. A clean, versatile rock guitarist, he is a romantic rebel who brings four electric guitars to every show.

Michael "Organ" Morgan Electric keyboards, harmonium, background vocals and percussion. Mike demonstrates impressive musical range from early Ray Charles and Doo-Wop music through the British Invasion and Flower Power Pop to Modern Jazz and Blues. He is a "Ladies' Choice" for his boyish grin and fun-loving demeanor.

Val Strode - Electric bass, acoustic guitar and background vocals. Val is an experienced rock and folk musician who possesses an encyclopedic musical knowledge of rock and pop musical styles. He plays a Hofner "Beatle bass" and has performed with touring rock acts.

Bob "Smackin'" McCracken Drums, vocals & percussion. Bob speaks softly but carries big sticks. He is centered on the beat and on time, every time. He owns three sets of drums plus accessories, including a 1963 set of Ludwigs. When not rocking, Bob stays in shape by swimming.

With full bar service, The Dorsett Inn is a popular suburban casual restaurant that serves a full range of appetizers, burgers, grilled and cold sandwiches, salads and specials.
