Dave McKenney -- A singer/songwriter originally from the New England area, now based out of Virginia, Dave has always had a love of music.  After spending time in his early years exploring different instruments it wasn't until his mid thirties that he finally decided to learn to play guitar.  He quickly mastered some of the basic chords and learned several of his favorite Jimmy Buffett songs, and from there he was off and running.  He would spend every spare minute he had practicing and learning new skills, and admits that performing live and writing his own music was what he wanted to do. 

In 2007 that dream began to come true, when he started performing live at a few local venues in and around Richmond, and remembers his very first paying gig was out on the patio at a popular pizza place.  Since then he has performed as far north in New England and as far south as Key West, and averages over 150 performances yearly.

With a lot of road behind him and so many great memories, Dave looks forward to whatever musical adventures the future will bring him.  He continues to write original music, and is always looking for that next great live music venue to perform at.

Eric Ellis -- Eric Ellis is a solo instrumentalist currently performing jazz and blues guitar music in southwest Florida. Over the years, he has worked as lead guitarist with several national touring artists including Eric Stone, Jim Morris & the Big Bamboo Band, and Tom Becker's "Back Home Again" John Denver Tribute. Eric has been writing and performing his original music in venues across the country for several years and has produced two CD's of his own.  After moving to the south, he honed his skills as a blues guitarist and became a sought after sideman.  Eric subsequently co-founded a country band that opened for dozens of national headliners including Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, Diamond Rio, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, and Gary Allan.  Eric is a native of Canada and graduate of Loyola College.
