Martha Capone - Guitar/Vocals
Martha started playing guitar at the age of 10 and hasn't looked back. She got her Strat at 15, and her Vibrolux amp at 16.
 
She has been playing in various bands in the DC & LA areas since then: rock bands, variety bands, oldies, blues bands, Elvis, original bands, even an all-girl country-punk band.

Martha started singing & then fronting her own band in the early 90s.  Her band plays high-energy rock, and she loves to grab a song and make it her own.

Make no mistake - she is different & exciting and, boy, she can ROCK!!!!!

Ron Mangas - Drums
Ron has been playing drums since his original rock band Talus took to the stage at Alexandria's Market Square in 1972.  His vintage Leedy drums are still his favorite, but most shows see the more durable Ludwig Classics with mahogany stain.

Ron has played with many of Northern VA top original, cover, variety, classic rock and blues bands, including Stoneage, Sidetract and Layman's Eye. When he is not banging out a cool rhythm for Martha, you can find him playing in the classic rock band Automatic.

Ron Peverill - Keyboards
Ronnie P Started playing keyboards in the mid 60s for Baltimore MD's three-chord wonders, The Crackers.  He also accompanied gospel/church choirs until his musical pursuits in Ithica, NYchanged courses.  Performances for a few decades included ensembles for private parties, weddings, accompanist for various vocalists and occasional honky-tonk, show-up, walk-in, free drinks, unplanned piano bar gigs.
