David “Gert Frobe” Farkas
Lead singer in over a dozen bands in the past twenty-five years. Influenced by Robert Plant, Chris Cornell, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Scott, David Lee Roth, Scott Weiland, David Coverdale, Jim Morrison, and Geoff Tate. David started out playing biker bars in Northeastern Ohio, then migrated south and spent most of his life in Georgia. He married a southern girl, officially making him a Damn Yankee. David has two daughters who he says “are working hard to collect on his Karma debt”. He is very thankful to be still able to physically and mentally put on a show, when so many of his comrades have dropped out of the rock business over the years. Helping people unwind and having a great time they have trouble remembering is his greatest pleasure.

Born and raised in Douglas County GA. Jimmy, like a lot of musicians loved music growing up. He went through school listening to Southern Rock such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot, Molly Hatchet and his favorite ZZ Top. He picked up a guitar one day in high school and had a garage band with some other friends but never went too far (sounds like a song) but it was more about playing. His girlfriend at the time gave him her father’s bass which he still has to this day. Then Jimmy discovered a career and family, and for 25 years music went to the back of his priority list. One day his oldest son found his old guitars and that started him back on the path, and he has been on it ever since. Jimmy says “Now I wish I had never left it”. He joins a friend who needed a bass player for his band, and was reunited with an old lost love. “Like riding a bike, you don’t forget but get rusty”, Jimmy has been in some local area bands like Generations Apart, Twilight Masquerade, 11th Night and .45 and a Fifth. Jimmy loves the sound and tone that a bass can deliver and loves playing any type of music, his eyes are wide open for keeping strong and moving forward.
Mike grew up in Upstate NY driving his parents and teachers nuts banging on pots/pans/desktops – just about anything until he got his first set of drums. Mike started playing in a band when he was 12. Mike has been influenced by the Doors, Cream, Led Zeppelin, and other great rock bands of the 60’s & 70’s. He played in multiple bands around NY – everything from Rock, Country, Jazz, and Blues, and even some Swing to make a few bucks. In the 80’s, Mike gave up music for work and a real income for 25 years. In 2001, Mike moved to the Atlanta area and came back to playing a few years ago. He still has the love and the fire – still wants to learn, grow, and rock on as long as he can.
