Keyboardist Sandi Lockwood co-created the band after moving to Sequim in 2005. She began playing piano at age 4 and organ at 6 before taking an interest in synthesizer/keyboard. Lockwood later aligned herself with a “Keyboard Orchestra” that she describes as a full symphonic orchestra with all sounds coming from digital synth keyboards. She also led led many youth and adult orchestras in California.
Vocalist and conga drummer Mary Charles studied under many teachers who were instrumental in showing her musical paths that nurtured her. Bandmates say she has a distinct sound that sets her apart from all others as her voice touches the soul of the listener.
Vocalist and bass player Debra Davis grew up singing hymns and gospel songs in church choirs and in duos and trios with her family. As her voice matured, she was often tapped for school and community programs. She later traveled with various R&B and blues bands to play the Seattle nightclub scene.
Guitarist and vocalist Richard Crowell began playing at age 13 following a growing interest in surf music, the British Invasion and more and began traveling through Arizona and Northern California with dance bands. He switched from guitar to bass in college and spent the next few decades playing bass in jazz combos. He went back to guitar in 2000 and plays shows in many styles and genres.
Music Live at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church began more than 35 years ago as a musical outreach to the community with proceeds go towards local, regional and global concerns.
