Lee Clayborne, Vocalist When it comes to Lee Clayborne, there is one way to describe his singing– “Preserved”. Lee began singing at age 5 and has sung with too many great bands and musical acts to list them all. One noted high point in Lee’s career was singing at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, NV in 2005. A true showman, Lee delivers the goods in full no matter the event. Whether crooning standards, wailing the blues, singing Motown, or channeling the Funk, Lee nails it 100%.
Jenny Mooney, Vocalist Jenny secretly sang rock and blues classics in the shower until she landed the lead role in the senior class high school musical. Since then, her attention has been diverted to finding the melodic groove that suits her voice while polishing harmony lines for accompaniment. Her strongest influences both vocally and lyrically are Susan Tedeschi, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, James Brown and Aretha Franklin. Fronting some of the hottest musical acts in Louisville KY for the past 10 years, Jenny is excited to take on the Lexington music scene. Jenny not only has amazing vocal chops, she is a brainiac as well and is in the process of finishing up her Ph.D. at the University of Kentucky! You go, Dr. J!
Dave Peterson, Guitar/Saxophones Dave’s heart bangs to the fat beat of a Roland 808. Born and raised in the rugged mountains of Colorado, Dave has had a passion for funky music from birth. Dave started his formal music training early in life and as a high school student won the prestigious Louis Armstrong award for young jazz musicians. During his college years, Dave toured North America with the DCI World Finalist Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps out of Canton, OH as a low brass player. Dave currently works as the Association Arts & Music Director for the YMCA of Central Kentucky and serves on the executive board for the nationally acclaimed Southwind Drum & Bugle Corps.
Greg Taylor, Bass Having flunked music class in 4th grade, Greg Taylor felt playing an instrument was definitely not part of his future. A few years later, his interest in music was rekindled after watching local bands perform and observing their bass players. Greg’s music career took flight while serving in the military, where he would diligently spend hours everyday practicing. Through his military career, Greg was fortunate to meet and play with many talented musicians as he proudly served his country during the Gulf War. Now a professional player, Greg has crafted a style all his own while paying homage to masters such as Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, Stanley Clark, and others. Make no mistake– Greg Taylor serves up the smoothest, thickest, deepest grooves in Central Kentucky.
Bob Wharton, Drums/Percussion Bob grew up in a musical family and began playing drums at age 10. In his formative years he played in school marching bands and orchestras, and began playing in professional bands at the early age of 13. Bob built his impressive chops laying down solid R&B grooves for some of the most popular dance bands around the Charleston, WV area. Along with funk, Bob has a serious passion for jazz. Extensive club experience and studio time has resulted in Bob being one of the most highly sought after drummers in Central Kentucky. When Bob is behind the drums, the dance floor is guaranteed to be packed. His motto is: “It’s what’s in the groove that counts”!
