Meet the Boys
Glenn - Guitar and Vocals
Raised at the edge of the middle of nowhere along the eastern front of the Rocky Mountains, freezing winters and cauldron-hot summers taught Glenn the value of running water and electricity. The fifth of ten children, He learned to eat fast, run fast and lay low until the dust settled. After a typical childhood of broken bones, fist fights and old-school discipline, he escaped into the world of art and music. Singing and playing guitar in "upscale Montana venues", Glenn learned to size-up a crowd, to know whom to stay clear of. After a mis-step or two, he ended up with a degree in Music Composition from the University of Montana. He continued his musical journey by singing in the Seattle symphony chorale for eight years, but turned in his tuxedo for plaid shirts and now focuses on bluegrass.
Turn-ons: boilermakers, swing dancing, being fashionably late.
Turn-offs: bad service, roughing it, other people being late.
Ben - Fiddle and Vocals
Born and raised in East St. Louis, in the great state of Missouri, Ben spent his childhood dodging bugs and floods. An eternal nature-lover and forever following in his older brother's footsteps, Ben became an avid cyclist, sculptor, and took up music. Eventually, needing to find his own way in the world, Ben ended up at a small liberal arts college in southern California. With his blonde hair, good looks and mid-western charm, Ben blended right into the surfer/artist scene. His freedom was short lived however, for Ben has always been a sucker for a pretty face. He followed his true love north to Seattle, discovered Gortex, and became a rugged northwest outdoorsman.
Turn-ons: kayaking, highballs, meals on time, solar power.
Turn-offs: neocons, an empty icebox, picking up the tab.
