Nearly ten years ago, Craig Donen (guitar and vocals) climbed off a plane at LAX armed with a roll aboard in one hand, his guitar in the other. After moving to SB and pursuing a career in the fitness arena, it was time to turn his attention to a vision that always plagued him; play music on stage and captivate an audience. The good news, three close friends shared the same vision. Justin Romain (guitar and vocals) is a Santa Barbara native. The son of a London based DJ, his father played some of the biggest UK venues of his day. Dr. Jerry Neil (“Dr. J”) is an optometrist by day, base player by night. His methodical handling of the human eye transcends into a lower range backdrop that rattles the spinal chord. These 9-5ers are rounded out by another non-California native, Mike Hurley. A professional drummer from Minnesota, he brings over years of percussion experience.
