David Sayen

David hails from Philadelphia where he studied music at Temple University.  His passion is jazz, but he has extensive experience in theatre, churches, big bands and popular music.   He loves to dance almost as much as he loves playing music,   You might say he stands out from the crowd.

Steve Middleton

Steve Middleton started playing drums in high school on the east coast.  He thought he hit the big time when the band he was in was called to replace Hall and Oats at a town celebration.  The band was not immediately signed to a record deal, allowing Steve to continue playing in a range of bands through college.  His genres include funk, pop, rock and any tune that gets people up and moving.  Often mistaken for Nicolas Cage, Steve's  favorite movie is Raising Arizona.
