The Band

Debbie Wallace, Vocals

Connecticut born Debbie Wallace is a classically trained Mezzo Soprano.  She has performed with numerous bands including Salt on the Rim, Loose Ends and Rockslide.  She currently displays her vocal talents as lead singer for The Whistling Moon Travelers, The Lost Bobs and The Justified Jones Band with whom she performs at Mar a Lago and many other venues.  “I love being part of an ensemble group or duo but I feel equally comfortable performing solo.  It’s fun to surprise people with my versatile song selections!  Entertaining at weddings, private parties or corporate events, I’ll usually img_1648begin with classic jazz standards, move into Motown, Country or Top 40 and end up belting out Aerosmith’s Dream On or Janis Joplin’s Bobby McGee.   People will always ask what my favorite songs to sing are?  My answer is always the songs that people enjoy hearing the most.  When the audience is having a great time it is so energizing!  I rarely take breaks, I’d much rather be singing!  I do enjoy singing C’est Si Bon and La Vie En Rose in French and some Spanish numbers as well.”  I have many musical influences including Linda Ronstadt, Ella Fitzgerald and Heart, but my absolute favorite is Stevie Nicks!  During performances, people would often say, “I bet you do a great Stevie Nicks!” or “Has anyone told you that you sound like Stevie Nicks?”  “She is such a unique, beloved and iconic rock legend so it is an absolute thrill to pay tribute to her with the Dreams, Promises and Time tribute!

Patrick Imus bassist, vocalist, acoustic guitar, keyboards, and bass pedals

Pat fills the lead vocal role (Roger Waters) for the Pink Floyd material. Pat got his first guitar when he was in first grade, and was given private lessons by his parents, who bought a grand piano and also had Patrick take classical and jazz piano lessons. Patrick enjoyed artists such as Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Pink Floyd, and The Who, influencing him towards a more collaborative approach to progressive rock. “At this time I felt it would be better to consider playing bass guitar and singing along with other guitarists, keyboardists, and drummers”.

By 10th grade, a friend from school introduced him to the album Yessongs by Yes; “That album has certainly become the most listened to album of my life, and Yes has become the one group that I have appreciated amongst the many progressive rock bands.” By the end of high school, the desire to develop a stronger singing voice led Patrick to take private voice lessons, which he continued for 5 years. He learned how to sing in falsetto, and how to use resonance through his head.

 

 

 

Pat Plays mostly his Black Rickenbacker 4001 with performances but also plays a Black Steinberger bass; also you’ll hear his bass pedals (triggered from a Roland PK-5 that controlls different Moog Tauras pedal & Deutron Bass pedal voices from a E-MU Protius in his rack. His bass guitars are sent into an ART SGX Nightbass preamp controlled by an ART X-15 where special effects and preamp voicings are used for different songs and segments of songs. His signal is in stereo and he splits the low frequency from the high frequency signals, sending the lows to (2) 18″ subs, (one R & one L) powered by a Crown PowerBass 1 (where most of the bass pedals go to), & the highs to (2) Ampeg 410HLFs (oneR & oneL) powered by an Ampeg SVT 4. “I also use a crybaby wah and a remake of the old Maestro Brassmaster stompbox called a B.Ass Master. One last secret for my tone, before every show, I put on a brandnew set of RotoSound Roundwound strings, a bit expensive, but you cant match that tone without this; soundmen love me, I demand 4 channels for my sound 2 low freq.R & L, & 2 high freq. R & L”.

Ken Burton, Drums

Ken Burton started playing in high school, taking lessons from a local Montana teacher, Dr. Ralph Campbell, and participating in clinics at the University of Montana.  Burton was the lead drummer in the Polson High School Stage Band, playing swing and jazz, soloing and performing with the highest honors in statewide competitions.  After high school, and music education at the U of M, Burton helped form the progressive rock band Papa Tuba, which covered artists from the Grateful Dead to Yes, Frank Zappa to Led Zeppelin, as well as many original tunes.  Papa Tuba performed over a three state area, as well as outdoor festivals with over a thousand attendees (not a bad accomplishment for a drummer not yet 21 years old).

Burton left Papa Tuba to move to Oregon, where he played for a groundbreaking church – Life Church, of Salem Oregon –- playing an early incarnation of in what would become the current wave of church praise and worship music (his music director and senior pastor, Mike Herron, is currently an artist and touring worship leader).  Burton also helped form the Salem, Oregon band No Lies, which covered the mainstream of what was current CCM, as well as many original numbers.  No Lies performed in both Oregon and Washington in many church and non-church venues (again, serving as a forerunner in crossing over from the “sacred” to the “secular.”)

After 15 years helping lead instrumental worship in Oregon, Burton moved back to Western Montana, where he started a retail music business and music school, and formed a band with some of his musically accomplished children, called the Noisy Boys. Also in western Montana Burton joined the blues band The Ruminators, featuring Doug Ruhman on guitar.

In 2003 Burton moved to his current home in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he plays with the tribute act Simply Shania, the tribute Dreams, Promises and Time, and continues to play for multiple churches and music conferences from the Miami metro area in Florida to the Treasure Coast. Burton is also playing with the Yes Tribute Sound Chaser upon occasion.

Burton plays Ludwig and Sabian exclusively, and utilizes Vic Firth stiKen SoFlo croppedcks and Remo heads.

This 70’s maple kit has been assembled and designed to play out as anything from Classic Zeppelin to Club 4 piece to full 7 piece.
