Nominated New Orleans’ “Best Blues Artist” in the 2018 Best of the Beat Awards, slide guitarist, singer, producer and WWOZ-fm “Soul Serenade” host Marc Stone gathers all of the roots and branches to forge a smoldering, funky style all his own. Whether putting his originals front and center with the Marc Stone Band, exploring the deepest Delta roots with Son House protege John Mooney or celebrating the Creole Funk and Soul legacy with New Orleans’ vocal legend Marilyn Barbarin in the New Soul Finders!, Stone’s distinctive voice and touch set him apart from the pack.

Wild Bill Daniel is the guitar player for international touring act Naughty Professor. When he isn't on the road he spends his time producing records at his studio Wild Child Studios in Mid City, New Orleans. Sam Kuslan features on Keys and Vocals while Sam Shahin (drums) and George Gekas of the Revivalists (bass) fill out the rhythm section.

Danny Abel is a New Orleans guitarist that can be found playing with bands all over the Crescent City. Danny grew up in Jackson, MS and later moved to New Hampshire. The experiences he had in these locations helped him develop a strong sense of blues and jazz at a young age. In 2001 he moved to New Orleans where he studied at the University of New Orleans with great musicians such as Steve Masakowski, Ed Petersen, Brian Seeger and Hank Mackie, just to name a few.

Today Danny can be seen playing regularly with Groovesect, Khris Royal & Dark Matter, Gravity A, the Brian Coogan Band, Pat Casey and the New Sound and many other projects, including often fronting his own jazz/funk ensembles. He has shared the stage with George Porter, Fred Wesley, Leo Nocentelli, Doug Wimbish, and Terrence Higgins, along with countless other music legends. Additionally, Danny has had opportunities to tour with Big Sam's Funky Nation and the Wild Magnolias. His versatility is one of his strongest features and has enabled him to be one of the hardest working guitar players in New Orleans. 

Cliff Hines is one of the leading voices in progressive music in New Orleans. His compositions defy categorization and seamlessly blend genres to create his own unique sound. His mastery over electronics allows him to manipulate his guitar in creative ways, also lending to his identifiable style. Despite his young age, he has been performing in New Orleans for over 15 years (since landing a weekly gig at the Funky Butt at age 12) and has over 10 years of teaching experience. He has toured nationally and internationally both with his own band and as a sideman for such artists as Rickie Lee Jones, Christian Scott, Mike Dillon, Sasha Masakowski, Gravity A, Khris Royal and Aurora Nealand.
