Danny Hukill began playing the drums in his home town of Ft. Worth,Texas in the 1960's and began playing guitar in the 1970's and has fronted and played with many of the popular Sonoma County bands such as Touche, the original Sonoma County Blues Society Band, The Dynamites, The Hellhounds, The Smokin' Jaze, and The Shuffle Brothers. His musical ventures have had him sharing the stage with such greats as T-Bone Walker and Jimmy Reed. He received a formal music education from Sonoma State University and plays the guitar and sings with soul and authority.

Brad Wilson was first inspired by his brother Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds and began memorizing the blues of Little Walter, Big Walter Horton, Willie Dixon, and others at an early age of 13 around 1969. His first experience in a band was the opportunity to sing and play harmonica for several years with the coastal Sonoma County "Ridge Band" starting around 1990. He founded the blues band called The Rhythm Drivers in 2004 with guitarist Ron Corral Jr. The Rhythm Drivers continue to play in local venues with band members Johnny "Tsunami", Tall Paul Dowling, and Steve DuBois.
