Cliff - Lead Guitar
Cliff Warren has been playing guitar in bands since he was a kid. He took his band "Ludlow" to win the New York State Battle of the Bands, which got the band on the legendary Ted Mack Amateur Hour (a precursor to American Idol) for national exposure and best in category win. Cliff played lead guitar and pedal steel guitar for Vermont based band, the Stompers, and the band shared the stage on the road with such acts as BB King, Marshall Tucker Band, Tom Rush and the Elvin Bishop Band. After moving to Connecticut, Cliff played out front for Willful Misconduct and other bands, to local critical acclaim and packed houses. In Connecticut, Cliff could be found jamming with one of rock's greatest bass men, Harvey Brooks, who recorded with Dylan, the Doors, Steely Dan, and on the landmark recording, "Super Session".
