In 2017, the band added guitarist, Mark Sipple, to the line up. Mark added his unique sound and stage presence to the group with shredding licks and rock/ metal influences, to solidify a sound unlike anything else before. Juan, tastefully and powerfully commands the bass guitar with funky and classic rock riffs and a finger style unique to only him.
