Lead Vocalist | Virgo
Our Diva of Disco is a Virgo and raving fan of Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Patty Austin, Glady’s Knight, Diana Ross,Natalie Cole, and Anita Baker, to name a few. Adventerous and active, Sonja is always rocking.
Vocalist | Libra
Teacher by day, singer by night, Liz was singing before she could talk (this is true, her first words were ``Twinkle Twinkle Little Star``). Liz performed in the Women's Glee Club at U of I and brings a passion for Steely Dan, Midnight Star and Prince.
Bass | Sagittarius
Greg lays down the bass line that keeps us rockin'! A keen fan of bands including Tower of Power, Earth Wind & Fire, and Cameo, Greg chills to all types of funk music while eating some Italian Beef and watching the NFL.
Keyboard & Vocals | Aries
Tickling the (faux) ivories is the one and only Darryl Armistead, a stand-up comedian, boxing enthusiast and graphology expert. Influenced by Earth Wind & Fire, Parliament and Richard Groove Holmes, this cat will bring da noise.
Guitar | Capricorn
This maestro of mac 'n cheese is also the meanest guitar player around. Zepplin. Isley Brothers. Santana. Earth Wind & Fire. All helped mold him into a 6-string fool, slammin' out meoldies for the masses.
Drums | Capricorn
Fun fact: Tony was not in Tony Toni Tone! But he does keep the beat like no other, A fan of Earth Wind & Fire, Miles Davis, Gene Krupa, and Sade, Tony cooks up wicked drum licks along with a mean pepper steak (of course, accompanied by a fine Bordeaux).
