Bud Burroughs
Mandolin & Keyboards

Guitar on the River, The Habit, Double Deadbolt Logic, Soon!

“Bud is the best mandolin player in Philly and a classically trained pianist; every band is better with Bud. Right now, we’re working on the next album, swapping files and synching up the song parts. You need to be pretty accurate with your parts for this to work, and Bud sets me straight when I’m off.” From Grateful Web Interview, July 30, 2020

On the remote production of That Guy Was Fun, “Mixing the two shoots together in iMovie, I sent it to Bud. You never go wrong sending stuff to Bud.” From Magnet “Isolation Drills with Jefferson Berry,” June 2020

 

On a concert stage or a house concert, Bud Burroughs’ mandolin playing is beyond belief. People gasp at his solos.” From Long After Dark Interview, May 30, 2020

Marky B!
Blues and Chromatic Harmonicas

Guitar on the River, The Habit, Double Deadbolt Logic, Soon!

“For what I do, Marky B! is the best harmonica player in town because he not only a great blues/roots player, but he puts the Chromatic Harp into play.  A student of his instrument like no one else.” From Grateful Web Interview, July 30, 2020

On the remote production of That Guy Was Fun, “While a fabulous harmonica player, Marky B! had as much to learn about the tech of looking good while playing well as I did; neither of us had ever approached anything like this before. And he crushed it. From Magnet “Isolation Drills with Jefferson Berry,” June 2020

“Marky B! is as good as any blues harmonica player you’ve ever seen.  And when he flips over to the chromatic, you’re simply blown away”. From Long After Dark Interview, May 30, 2020

Uncle Mike
Bass and Lead Guitar

Double Deadbolt Logic, Soon!

“I’m writing songs to each of these guys’ talents, but I’m taking them first to Uncle Mike Damora. Uncle Mike sets up the bottom end with bass lines that are going to support the style of the song: Folk, Folk Rock, Americana, Blues—he can do it all. And his simpatico with Caleb Estey on drums locks in things for the rest of the band.”

From Grateful Web Interview, July 30, 2020

“With Uncle Mike, the basslines inform so much of what comes next.” From Long After Dark Interview, May 30, 2020
