Steve Pinkney - guitar, vocals
Steve Pinkney has been a guitarist since he was 8 years old, having aspired to win the affection of the younger of the Agostini sisters down the block. (Chicks like guitar players at any age.) But now he got the girl he always wanted...
A veteran of L.A bands, Steve most recently played with Moe Jones, which gigged and recorded with acclaim. Steve is now honored to play with Michelle Holmes, and he also plays guitar better than anyone you know.
