About us

Meet the Band

Ellen Skogman on vocals, tambo, shaker.  Ellen is a Jupiter, Florida native with Minnesota roots.  A classically trained choral singer, Ellen began her performing career in high school as the President of Jupiter High Choir.  Ellen's vocal styling has been described of having the electric rasp of Janis Joplin, the sultry tone of Natalie Merchant, and the feathery gruff of Stevie Nicks.  Performing live music as an acoustic duo at any venue, including the wedding bands category, is a passion pursuit for Ellen.

Billy Kensinger on vocals, guitar, foot tambo. Billy hails from Kenai, Alaska where, as a young teen, he cut his teeth playing classic rock and blues with his brothers in their band, Badge. Touring all over the Kenai Peninsula gave Billy a solid foundation in performing arts which lead to a deep passion for a variety of musical stylings.  Billy's biggest influences are Eric Claption, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray, Joe Cocker, Johnny Winter, Rory Gallagher, Paul Rodgers, B.B. King, Albert King, Paul Byrd and The Escalators, Robert Pepper, Gary Superman, and many more.
