More about the Musicians:

Steve Mayone performs his original songs with the help of local legends The Blue Ribbons. Steve has been a songwriter for over 30 years, his songs and instrumentals appearing in TV and indie films such as Last Stop For Paul and Dark Rising 2. Hailed as a "master songsmith" by Americana UK, his songs have been covered by artists such as Nolan McKelvey and The Johnnie Come Latelies, and as a musician has performed with Levon Helm, Kate Taylor, Dave Mattacks and Treat Her Right. The Blue Ribbons have been performing in the New England area for over 10 years, and are presently working on their second full length CD with Steve in the production chair. Individually, they are accomplished and successful musicians:

James Rohr, Piano - Hailing from New Mexico, has been writing and performing in the area for the past 20 years, adding his unique keyboard approach to such bands as Miss Tess, Girls Guns and Glory, Jay Feinstein, Bow Thayer and the Sweet and Lowdown. You'll hear a little Captain Beefheart, Herbie Hancock and Billy Preston in his playing. 88 keys can't contain him.

Jef Charland, Upright Bass - Jef is a heavy hitter in the Boston jazz scene, performing almost nightly with such inovative groups as the Gil Aharon band, James Merenda, Pandelis Karayorgis, Luther Gray and Jim Hobbs, to name a few. You can't miss him in a nighclub: he's the one with the biggest instrument and the biggest smile.

Mike Castellana, guitar - Mike is no stranger to the guitar. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Mike has been performed and toured the States and Europe. He's trecked the globe with Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles, Eddie Kirkland and Nash Satterfield. His playing can be heard on hundreds of CD's by such artists as The Glorytellers, Loose Salute and Rich Gilbert and the Velvet Swingers. He'll squeeze notes out of the guitar neck that you've never heard before.

Tauras Biskis, drums - Tauras is a man of many talents. As a talented and in demand drummer, he has been seen and heard with Johnny Hoy and the Blue Fish, Barrence Whitfield, John Cate, Kate Taylor, Charlie Esposito and Mario Perrett. Splitting his time between Jamiaca Plain and Martha's Vinyard, he's building and renovating not one house but three houses. Ask him about his solar panels.
