Greg was born and raised in Harvey, Illinois, a city near the south side of Chicago. He began playing bass when he was 15 years old. “I would spend hours playing along with Jimi Hendrix records, at full volume! I’m pretty sure it drove my parents crazy.”

JAY DAVENPORT - Drums

Born in 1960, Jay Davenport grew up on the south side of Chicago, listening to jazz, jazz-fusion and lots of 60’s and 70’s R&B. After being particularly influenced by the different styles of his favorite drummers: Art Blakey, Billy Cobham and Steve Gadd, he set out to find his own niche and develop his own sound.

Melvin Taylor was born in 1959 in Jackson, Mississippi.  His musical roots however have always been in Chicago, where he moved with his family when he was 3 years old.  The proverbial musical prodigy, he started playing guitar at age 6, learning from his uncle Floyd Vaughan, and his great aunt, Rosetta Tharpe.
