Jonathan Lyons has been singing songs from before his time for as long as he can remember. His Uncle was a big fan of Johnny Cash and got Jonathan to sing along. By age 15, Jonathan began doing shows as The Man In Black alongside his dad as Elvis Presley. As the years went on, Jonathan perfected his craft and even moved on to impersonating a young Elvis Presley bouncing back and forth between the two personas while playing festivals, theater resorts, senior centers, etc.  Jonathan loves to share his talent and passion with his audiences.

"Chicago's Newest Rockabilly Bass Sensation "- Zach Lentino takes the part of Marshall Grant of the Tennessee Two, providing the trio with the sound of the classic boom-chicka-boom. Zach has played his slap-bass on The Late Show with David Letterman and has toured internationally with his band The Lovers. Under the arm of his father, Dan Lentino of The Fabulous Ambassadors, Zach began playing guitar at the very early age of 8, and later the upright-bass at the age of 12. He has played in the pit for The Tempest (Chicago Shakespeare Theater) and has been on stage as Jay Perkins in The Million Dollar Quartet, Seymour in Little Shop and Selsdon in Noises Off!

At 5 years old, Bobby DeVito came under the tutelage of his hard-living maternal grandfather, Warren “Slim” Henderson, who played with Jimmie Rodgers and hosted a radio show at the Grand Ole Opry in the ’40s. Slim played his old Harmony guitar – which Bobby now owns – mostly on his lap, using a pocket knife as a slide. Bobby got hooked straight away. The DeVito family moved to New Orleans when Bobby was 14. He grabbed hold of the city’s gumbo culture, reveling in the music, the food and the sultry ambience. Bobby has toured all over the world and is excited to create the illusion of the American country music guitarist Mr. Luther Perkins.
