Brooke Alyson – Stevie Nicks Vocalist


Born in the land of Urban Cowboy myths and legends, Brooke grew up on classic rock and country - Stevie Nicks, The Eagles, Dan Fogelberg, The Judds, The Highwaymen, The Beatles, McCartney / Wings, and ..Elvis. Having fallen in love with Elvis and his '68 Comeback special at the tender age of six .. She found the blues. She was practically born on the stage, with her parents having been playing around the Houston area before she came into the world. If her life were to one day be made into a movie, it would begin as a small girl of four years old, walking into a music store with her mother, Led Zeppelin blaring and two posters, larger than life, on the wall ..of Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin..... That was to be a defining memory for her early life. Her first time on stage was at six years old...The rest is History. Her mother bought a little black chiffon ballerina outfit when she was 8 and ...What you hear now .. is what came of that magical childhood.

Brooke says, “Like Stevie, I try to take you away to a little fantasy world for a while, and simply keep the dream alive that she begun.. if I can do that, I’ve done my job.” In addition to paying tribute to Stevie, Brooke isn’t just a one-trick pony, She also writes and sings various other genres and styles. More projects are in the works for the future to be announced soon. See more of her work at http://www.reverbnation.com/brookealyson

She was born in Nebraska, and grew up in Illinois. She started training professionally in Junior High with the principal Oboeist from the St. Louis Symphony. She really wanted to be a drummer, but was most encouraged to play the Oboe. She also played drums in Marching Band, Jazz Band and Swing Choir, and a Country Western Band in High School. She became serious about playing the guitar at age 13, and heard a Heart song on the radio that changed her life forever. She was a member of the Honor Band, and won the John Phillip Sousa Award as well as other accolades.

She was given a full music scholarship at Illinois Weslayan University studying theory and composition, with a major in music performance, and double minors in piano and percussion.

She has many influences, from Neil Diamond to Van Halen, Heart and Dream Theatre, Melissa Etheridge, Fleetwood Mac, Jimmy Page and Nancy Wilson.

 

Wolff DeLong – Bass/Vocals/Percussion

Originally from San Diego, California, Wolff thundered his way along the West Coast from Mexico to Canada playing in numerous bands around the San Diego area; most notably, the Bluesmatics and the Dive Kings. His journeys eventually led him to Clarksdale, Mississippi, where he met and toured the US with James “Super Chikan” Johnson for five years, as well as Jimbo Mathis, founder of the Squirrel Nut Zippers. When he wasn’t on the road with Super Chikan or Jimbo, he ran sound at Morgan Freeman’s legendary club Ground Zero for musical greats such as Charlie Musselwhite and Bob Margolin. It was at Ground Zero where Wolff met Mean Gene Kelton and agreed to relocate to Houston TX to become Mean Gene’s DieHard bass player, a position he held for five years.

Wolff’s bass and vocals are featured on Gene Kelton’s CD, “Going Back to Memphis: A Biker Band Tribute to Elvis,” (recorded at the legendary Sun Studio) as well as Super Chikan’s CD, “Chikan Soup.” Wolff is also the bassist/vocalist of original project Black Jack Davey, and he also does various DJ/Karaoke shows in the Houston area.
