Jeff Babko

Pianist/keyboardist Jeff Babko is a native of Southern California, and has remained on the west coast throughout his career.  Babko constantly balances many musical and professional hats, as an in-demand recording musician and touring keyboardist. Babko’s credits span from tours with James Taylor, Sheryl Crow, Toto and Robben Ford to being music director for Martin Short & Steve Martin and being in the house band for ABC TV’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” for 21 years. He’s featured on movie scores “Superbad”, “The 40 Year Old Virgin”, “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “Encanto”, including the #1 “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.” Babko’s albums include 2012’s critically acclaimed “Crux” for Tonequake Records, featuring Mark Isham, Tim Lefebvre and Matt Chamberlain, and “El Musico” (2019).  His 2007 release “Mondo Trio” w/ Jeff Coffin and Vinnie Colaiuta is considered a classic "drum fusion" record.  The collective supergroup "Band Of Other Brothers" with Will Lee, Dave Matthews Band's Jeff Coffin, Nir Felder and Steely Dan's Keith Carlock headlined the Iridium in NYC and toured the US in 2023. If you listen to public radio, you may have heard Jeff as a regular band member on LIVE FROM HERE, with host, mandolin superhuman Chris Thile, throughout the 2018/19 season.

Tim Lefebvre

Throughout his wide-ranging career, Tim Lefebvre has amassed a reputation for being one of the world’s most innovative bassists. The Foxboro-native’s creative playing style is an addictive blend of vintage rock, improvisation, soundtrack undertones, and electronic grooves that can be heard on his appearances on over 150 recordings, ranging from Grammy award-winning albums such as David Bowie’s Blackstar to the soundtracks of classic films such as The Departed and Ocean's 12.  From 2013 to 2018, Lefebvre was the bassist of the dynamic blues rock ensemble Tedeschi Trucks Band, and he can be heard on their three most recent releases, Let Me Get By (2016), Live From The Fox Oakland (2017), and Signs (2019). Before joining the group, he worked with artists such as Wayne Krantz, Boomish, Uri Caine, Chris Botti, and Leni Stern and was the part-time bassist in Saturday Night Live from 2001 to 2008.

Mark Guiliana

Hailed by The New York Times as “a drummer around whom a cult of admiration has formed,” Mark Guiliana brings the same adventurous spirit, eclectic palette and gift for spontaneous invention to a staggering range of styles. Equally virtuosic playing acoustic jazz, boundary-stretching electronic music, or next-level rock, he’s become a key collaborator with such original sonic thinkers as Brad Mehldau, Meshell Ndegeocello, Donny McCaslin, Matisyahu, and the late, great David Bowie. His solo albums include the illustrious“Beat Music” series.
