Band Interests

The Santa Ana artist village, Long Beach, yoga, restoring rewiring and otherwise modifying our instruments and amplifiers, chemical engineering, surfing, bringing our friends together with good music, good food, and great conversation. Living with truly open hearts and minds.

Brandi Alexander:

Born in Santa Ana CA.

She came out screaming and hasn’t ever stopped. In elementary school her choir teacher told her she couldn’t sing. Thankfully she couldn’t listen either. She got her first guitar at 7 years old. In jr high she would use two household tape decks to multi-track her songs. She has paid her dues on the solo acoustic scene in LA and Orange County. She has written and performed original material all of her life.

Jeff Brooks:

Born in Anaheim CA.

At 14 his big sister rented the Song Remains the Same to show him what “real Rock n Roll is”. He promptly sold his brand new bike and bought a well used guitar. Self taught, he played 8 hours a day 7 day a week for the first 4 years. Before shows he waited in the parking lots of the best clubs in LA while his band mates enjoyed the cocktails inside. Ever obsessed with his sound, he customizes every piece of equipment he owns, from amps to guitars to making his own effects pedals.

Gareth Friedlander:

Born in Detroit MI,

He started his love of percussion in the school band.

His parents bought him his pro drum kit in his early teens

He has formal training in jazz and has performed in orchestras. In addition to his precision and attention to detail he is a gifted arranger and songwriter, playing the song on the drums as opposed to just playing drums to the song
