GRANITE (Lead Guitar)
Granite, known as the most powerful son of Mother Nature, is crystalline rock formed by an assembly of crystals of feldspar, quartz, and mica. It is an igneous rock that comes from the slow cooling and crystallization of magma deep within the earth (dated about 400 million years ago). An intricate yet strong stone developed with time and patience. And it can withstand heat up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit… So BRING IT ON!!
Originally a New York rocker, Granite started his musical journey at age 8, hanging out with the Woodstock artists before the show. When he’s not a Crown Jewels Rock (which is seldom), he is tinkering…. Building amps, pedals, and is on a perpetual quest for the perfect tone. Granite is our technician… Our mechanic... He keeps all our parts in perfect working condition, like a well-oiled machine!
This is GRANITE! He is a ROCK!
As the bedrock of the band, Pete hammers out solid beats to build the castle on top of. Pete's originally from Naples, Florida, but has spent many a year in the area, solidifying lots of local bands, including UDoVooDoo, The Beltway Rockers, and others...
This is SLATE! He is a ROCK!
Wes is our powerful other-half of our rhythm section, holding down the low end. Although a native of Wisconsin and West Virginia, Wes has called Virginia his home for more than 30 years now. Since joining his first band in 10th grade, Wes has been rocking out in one form or another since then, in a variety of cover and original bands.
