BRYAN has been a fixture in Seattle bands for most of his life and has for the past 12 years been the lead singer and front man of the popular Casino/Corporate/Club/Festival band The Machine.

While continuing to front About Face and The Rockafellers (and sitting in with whoever needs a hired gun), ARNY used his vocal and guitar skills with The Grand Delusion (Styx Tribute) and Highway Run (Journey Tribute) a few years ago. After those two bands folded, ARNY created another Styx project (Borrowed Time: The Music of Styx), and is currently that band’s guitarist and co-lead vocalist with BRYAN WOOLLEY.
