The Instigators boast the always amazing Mark "The Voice" Edson on lead vocals and acoustic/electric guitar. Every song is an incredible vocal interpretation. A true vocalist extraordinaire. As an extra bonus Mark performs several songs by Roy Orbison, channeling the Orb's voice in an uncanny reproduction. Experience the beauty of Classic Music's melody and lyrics through "The Voice", Mark Edson, and The Instigators.

The Instigators rock with Larry "Cool" Schramm on bass and vocals. Originally from "Philly", have you ever marveled at the phat bass that makes you want to shake your Bdonkadonk? Well, all that, and he sings too. Most Excellent.

The Instigators and lead guitarist, Jim "Fingers" Townsend, are a match made in heaven. From Californicopia to the land of Tejas, an amazing guitarist and vocalist. Acoustic and electric, lead vocal and harmony, three singers in one band, oh my gosh, it's the freakin' Beatles, except it is actually The Instigators.

The Instigators are driven mad by the explosive rhythm of Keith Newberry on drums. Don't drummers drive everyone crazy? Well, if not, they aren't doing their job, eh what? Having played with greats such as Freddy King, Eric Johnson, James Brown and Johnny Dee, well, see it to believe it.

The Instigators are FABULOUS!!! I have heard a number of compliments from our BBQ attendees and they were certainly the hit of the evening. I would absolutely use them again and would highly recommend them to any group. They are perfect for groups with a diverse age range and background.

We hired this group to play for my husband's 80th Birthday Party. We had 28 family members --all ages. A few of us are good dancers so we danced. Some of us can't dance at all so we just listened. But ALL of us enjoyed the band and its music tremendously. The group kept the party moving and lively. They were just terrific!!!!!!!! We recommend them to everyone. Anyone hiring them will be fortunate to have them for their event. We look forward to bringing them back for our next major function. They are a real class act!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The band, The Instigators, went out of their way to entertain us at our private party. When the temperature dropped, and the gale-force winds began to blow across the deck at the marina, I was afraid our guests would go home. I think the main reason they all stayed was because of the band's great performance! Everybody was asking who they were, and where we found them. Thank you!!!
