The first time Tim got excited about music was in Michigan right before he turned 4, when he walked by a neighbor's open back door, and they were playing Motown records on a console stereo, where the bass was audible.
Growing up was frustrating, because no one had a bass guitar. Finally, more than 10 years later, he was able to borrow a bass from a friend, and the rest is history.
Dave was taught how to play 12 bar blues at a very young age while growing up in the San Francisco peninsula area, and ever since the blues has been ingrained in his musical style. He still plays the same beat up vintage Fender Stratocaster since his high school days but has since shelved the Music Man 65 watt 115 and is now using a 1970 Fender Quad Reverb Silverback amp. To round out his sound, Dave occasionally busts out his Epiphone Sheraton II hollow-body guitar for those deep funky blues tones.
