Sr. Event Manager/Lead Vocals/Keys/Rhythm Guitar
Dave comes to San Diego from Texas by way of the United States Navy. He has a ton of musical credentials but more importantly, David is a real Texas man! When not setting up communications for special forces, he’s at home enjoying time with his wife, kids and Bruno (his dog), who he adopted through Tamara. David majored in vocal performance at the University of Texas Pan-Am (Good thing he joined the Navy!) and can sing anything you throw at him. He is our band leader and loves bossing us around. But he leads by example and we are very proud of this guy! David is a great friend, an awesome singer, pianist, band leader and dad.
Lead Vocals/Vocal Section Leader
Tamara has her degree in Music Education from Cal State Fullerton and holds a California State teaching credential. As the Elementary Band Teacher for the Beaumont Unified School District, Tamara has tons of patience and a diverse understanding of child psychology! This has assisted her tremendously in her role as Band Mom for Jukebox. Tamara has a wonderful husband and a beautiful son. She is a lover of animals and works in Dog rescue, which is how our DM Dave got his dog. But that’s for another time! Tamara is our friend, anchor, link to common sense, a phenomenal vocalist and a classy example of what makes us great.
Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals/Audio Producer
Steve is a native San Diegan and is a stereotypical, granola eating Californian. For example, when he and his wife were married, as a grand exit they waterskied naked across Mission Bay. Steve owns a recording studio, is a Professor Of Music at Grossmont College, owns a bar (Desi’s) in Point Loma and is the most fit, energetic member of the band. He is a humanitarian, world traveler and a lovely person, overall! When Steve has downtime, you will find him doing yoga or working on his garden. He is a genuine lover of life and is a calming influence under the most stressful of times. He is the guy that you want in your corner when the chips are down and is one heck of a great guitarist and energetic showman!
Bass Guitar/Electric Guitar/Vocals
Zach is a native San Diegan and is not a granola eating Californian. In fact, Zach bends metal. Not in a metaphorical sense. He can actually make a Navy ship! Zach is the tallest, skinniest member of the band and definitely looks the rockstar part. We are all a bit jealous of that. He is thoughtful, intelligent and can play any instrument you put in his hands. He is a composer too. When Zach is not building Navy Ships, you will find him at home composing original music and geeking out on various online tutorials. Zach never stops. Besides being a phenomenal Bass player and all around musician, Zach is very smart, an extremely reliable friend and a joy to be around.
DJ/Emcee/Lead & Backing Vocals
Margaret is Tamara’s younger sister. They grew up singing and performing together but they are nothing alike! To make a Game Of Thrones analogy, Tamara is Sansa Stark and Margaret is Arya Stark or Disney’s Snow White to Margaret’s Cinderella! She is an excellent vocalist and an awesome DJ with a quick wit and a take no prisoners attitude. When Margaret is not storming the castle, She is a first rate Vet Tech and an awesome mother to her 2 boys. Whenever any of us have questions about boys or dogs, she is always there with advice and suggestions. Margaret is that friend in high school that you wanted to have at every party. Besides being funny and sweet, she is always there for you when you need a hug and if you are down, she will find a way to make you laugh.
Sax/Horn Section Leader
Troy has been with Jukebox from the start. He just showed up one day and never left! A native San Diegan and resident short haired hippie, Troy only recently got the hint that horn players can help set up the P.A. too. That does not make him any less of a great guy… He just doesn’t get subtle hints! Maybe it’s because Troy is an artist. He has this ability to gel with a melody, focus on the vibe and become an intricate part of every song. It’s uncanny. Troy is one of the top horn instructors in the area, teaching at schools and private lessons around the county. He is also responsible for managing our horn section and orchestration. A true artist, a valuable friend and an excellent person.
WYATT (DJ Recipe) HEAD
Wyatt is originally from Los Angeles and now resides in Temecula. The California wine country. Yes, he is fancy. Very Fancy.Recipe has been with Jukebox almost from the start. He pioneered the DJ/Band concept with Jukebox and was an integral part in creating the flow that we use today. He is also an early adapter and Master Video Jockey which brings a cool and unique visual element to all events. Wyatt is married to a beautiful, intelligent (Physicians Assistant) and (Lucky for us) understanding woman. They have 2 young children and an awesome life together.
Behold, our wonderful squad of four-legged protectors. They take their role as security very seriously, ensuring the safety of our loved ones while we’re out and about. They also double as disciplinary officers, making sure our little ones toe the line. And who needs an alarm clock when you have them around? They’ll be there to give us a warm welcome, even in the wee hours of the morning.
