Kenda took voice and music at Kirkwood College in 1971 & 1972. She is influenced by some of her favorites: Linda Ronstadt, Pat Benetar, Bonnie Raitt, Grace Slick, and Lydia Pense from Cold Blood. Kenda sings with a powerful rock and soul feel. She enjoys writing lyrics also, and hopes the band will have some time to dedicate to originals soon. Kenda has played in numerous other bands in Eastern Iowa ever since the late 60's where her strong vocal performance has made her an easily recognizable talent! She tried to retire from performing a couple of times, but the music kept pulling her back. Besides, nothing can beat making good music for people to dance and listen to while working with a great bunch of guys!

Dave Morgan - Drums, Vocals, Guitar, Trombone

To make a short story long, I was introduced to live music at the young age of four, watching my older brother and sister play in our basement with their jazz band. I hid on the stairs, watching and listening, hoping not to get caught and kicked out of the basement. So, to no surprise growing up in a musical family, when it was time to learn to play an instrument, naturally I was given a trombone!?! Didn't see that coming, did ya! "You play what we have," said dad, as he pulled it out of the cabinet. So, fast forward to high school, listening to 97X radio, I didn't hear any trombones, but I did hear Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin, and decided I NEED to play drums! So at the age of 17, I started playing drums, bass-akwards mind you, enjoying the groove along the way...
