Joseph Vincelli- During this ten year stint, he toured and recorded with Buddy Miles, Ice Cube, Bobby Goldsboro, Jerry Vale, and Burt Reynolds. Also, Joseph wrote for several film scores and movies, commercials, and jingles.

Marcus Rockwell- Since the release of his 1999 highly successful CD “A Very Jazzy Christmas” and his 2003 Contemporary Gospel Jazz CD “Speak to My Heart,” trumpeter, vocalist and composer Marcus Rockwell has received tremendous comparisons to Miles Davis, Rick Braun and Chris Botti. This success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop music.
