    Marty Black learned to play drums during the mid-‘60s, but then took 40 years off,      rarely picking up drumsticks while he traveled the world with the US Navy and then      American Airlines.  Choosing the Central Coast for retirement, Marty was inspired to      take up the drums again by Dave Hollister with “Unfinished Business.” He and Steve     Hilstein of Music Motive coached Marty to the point where he was able to play well      enough to join Rock Odyssey.  This is a huge step up for Marty, and he is thrilled to      be part of such a good band.

John Harrison, Bassist

I have been a lover of music all my life and I have been playing bass, guitar, drums, percussion, keys and sax for the last 27 years. My major musical influences are funk, rock, metal, reggae, ska, jazz, blues, and yes some country. I got my start in my hometown of Bakersfield where I have been in many bands over the years that included Insyndia (metal), Split Bliss (rockabilly), The John Heidrick Project (classic rock and pop), Sprinklerhead (rock), the Garrett Trio (groove) and many others from my hometown. Since I have been out here I have played fill in from time to time, I was the original bassist for Sound Investment and The Mono 78’s. I took time off to focus on family and school, now I’m back with a kickass group of people who share the same passion for music as I do.
