Keith Buckley - Guitar, Lap Steel and Vocals
"Zoom-Bop and The Fabulous Flames", "Cobalt Blues Band", "Solid Gold",
"Dewey and The Dipsticks", "The Bop Rockets" and "Moon Dance" are all band names from Keith's formative years as a guitar player/entertainer in the Northwest, Canada and overseas tours.
Having worked with multiple Elvis impersonators, (5!), tribute groups, as well as touring with 50s-60s show bands in the Northwest, Canada and the Far East has helped Keith hone his craft.
Bob Wagner - Keyboards, Saxophone, Guitar and Vocals
After stints in high school orchestras and community bands Bob fell in with the wrong crowd and put his clarinet aside (later to become a lamp). Much to the dismay of his parents he took up guitar and began playing folk music in coffee shops and other dens of iniquity.
Eventually he found his way to Portland, Oregon, picked up the piano, and toured Canada with a "Show Band". This was followed by Disco and Top 40 on the Pacific NW hotel circuit with bands sporting matching polyester outfits.
After a significant bribe from Keith, Bob brought his amazing multiple
talents to 2nd Time Through. And the rest is history!
