Paul Graves is lucky enough to play bass and sing with folks this good. His other duties include cat herder and paddock technician. "In this business, you've either got to play the blues or sing with a high voice."
Mondinband roots go deep into Americana. We were born in the 50's and raised with the birth of rock 'n roll.
Carolyn Ittner has been playing drums around the St. Louis / Metro East area for years. She and Paul played together with Jeff Breihan (R.I.P.), Terry Coolbaugh (R.I.P.), and Butch Moore (Still Around) in The Silvertones, back in the mid/late 80's when she was a child prodigy. She has played with a number of bands, including Rondo's Blues Deluxe, Stantana, Melissa Neels, and other fine bands around town.
John Mondin has been playing guitar forever. His rich voice fills the room with a passion eclipsed only by his soulful slide playing, reminiscent of Duane Allman, or Lowell George. He also builds and repairs guitars and other stringed instruments for a living. The force is strong with this one.
"The World's Most Dangerous One Man Band" J Christopher started hanging around Mike's Ten-Pin, and we fed him. You all know what I'm saying. His guitar, harp, vocals and wit add the ganash to our cupcake. He knows the songs that we don't, and is a kick ass DJ as well.
