Ryan Hughes plays de bass when Dave fall down.

Chris Leva has been playing music professionally for fourteen years. In that time he has performed just about every style of music possible, while penning over fifty original tunes.



"Dave Grant play de bass, make de lowness sound. Him play with all dem mofos plenty long time make plenty low note, you bet. Big thump. You dance now."











Nate Hawkes plays alto and baritone saxophones. A clarinetist at first he graduated to the "pappa" sax in high school and at James Madison University. You can catch him with Full Flavor as well as with the Guano Boys and the open spaces near Crozet.






Spencer Lathrop is also a resident of Charlottesville. You can find Spence in his own music store "Spencer's 206" when he's not drumming with numerous local bands. You can hear him with the Hogwaller Ramblers when not playing with Guano Boys.






Andy Rowland plays alto sax with passion. "The music must be felt internally and externally. The sax is a large body part." Major influences include Grover Washington and Maceo Parker. He's played locally in the Charlottesville area with The Secret, Devon, and the Tom Robbins Blues Experience





Jeff Saine is the man behind the steel. He thinks Hawaii and Jamaica are the same island.
