Behind the Music
Rich Guinn is lead singer and guitarist for the band and has recently relocated to Saint Augustine. Rich is currently working as a solo artist at venues all over Saint Augustine and Jacksonville as well as playing with Rumble Street
Growing up on the Space Coast with rockets launching for the moon right in his back yard, Rich eventually ended up working on the Space Shuttle program. He spent his days working and nights playing music in venues all around Cocoa Beach and Daytona Beach. He spent time working as a studio musician at various studios playing bass and guitar. He played out at many local venues as a Solo, Duo, Trio and full band for many years.
Some of these venues include, Lou's Blues, Grill's Seafood Deck Port Canaveral, Grill's Riverside, Squid Lipps in Melbourne, The Thirsty Turtle, Coconuts on the Beach, Traders in Daytona Beach, The Sandbar in Cocoa Beach, Millikens Reef and many many more.
While he was doing all this playing he also earned a BS degree in Computer Science. He was working only as a Solo entertainer, playing the Central Florida beach venues and entertaining locals as well as tourists. Rich also spent 3 months as the lead guitarist and backup vocalist with The Natalie Nicole Green band out of Gainsville Fl.
Mitch Biskup is the bass player and backup vocalist with the band. Mitch began playing guitar at age 14. By age 16 he was playing bass in clubs and hotels and for Spring Breakers all along Ft. Lauderdale's Gold Coast & Miami Beach. It was a great time and place to grow up. He was fortunate enough to have entertained the likes of Joe Namath, The 4 Seasons, Evil Knievel, Crazy Greg Newell, the "Father of Spring Break" and owner of the Elbo room and The Button and opened for Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels and Wayne Cochran and the CC Riders featuring Jaco Pastorius on bass.
Age 26 brought marriage and retirement from music and a new career in business management which extended until 2010. Along the way he was honored by Inc. 500 Magazine as partner, VP, and General Manager of New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Miami. New Horizons was recognized as # 131 on the Fastest Growing 500 companies list in 2002 and numerous other accolades such as one of Entrepreneur Magazines Top 500 franchises in 2006 and Top 40 Fastest Growing Tech Companies by South Florida Business Journal.
37 years later it was back to music in 2013. "I had plenty of spare time and had kept my vintage 1973-P and 1974-J Basses along with 1966 Gibson EBO. So I decided to take Music Theory lessons. Being "self taught" I wanted to learn why I was playing what I play and I wanted to play 5 & 6 string bass". From that, Mitch was referred to other players and spent time in several local bands before meeting Rich Guinn whose awesome vocals and guitar work make this project possible and Gregory Milosz, one of the finest drummers in N. Florida. "It's an honor to be able to work with these fine musicians".
Robert Hunter hails from Northern Virginia. First performing professionally with "Upper Cut" in the Washington DC Metro area, Robert also performed with "The Awakening", "Scream" and various other talented local artists. In 1994 he moved to North Florida, appearing in Southern Rock acts, most notably, "The Insinuators", Jacksonville's "Skytrain", with Teddy Washington and in his own 3 piece band, "The Classics".
Robert moved to St. Augustine in 2003 and has performed with many local artists, most notably St. Augustine's own "Rumble Street" and "Cottonmouth" as well as solo appearances singing and playing piano.
