The “brain child” of Wil Roberts –  (wilrobertsmusic.com)

“Well I tried to get a band with this name off the ground in Vail, Colorado a number of years ago and due to distractions and life changes it never happened. I’ve always liked this band name and after partnering with singer Jackie Turner here in the south bay I’ve launched the name, with a band of course, :-) again!

I’m on bass guitar in this band with some contribution on keys and acoustic guitar. The vocals really kill with this line up. Dana Withers, Jackie Turner and myself all switch off on lead vocals while the harmonies never seem to stop. Miles Pruitt is a rock solid drummer and tons of fun to play music with. My favorite part of this band though is the over all fun we have each time we get together to play music.”

It all started when Isaiah began playing the guitar at the very young age of 6, learning from teacher, mentor, and brother Angelo Santi. By the age of 13, Isaiah started to get more mature in his playing performing in the Sutter Creek Blues Bar known as Drytown Club. Word quickly spread about this 13 year old kid playing the blues at Drytowns Blues Jam held on Friday nights. One Friday night Isaiah packed the house and the dance floor and it was at that moment he knew this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. It wasn’t too much longer after that when Isaiah knew he wanted to eventually do his own thing. He released his album in 2008 titled "Plug Me In" with 12 of his own Blues, Funky, Latin, Pop songs he wrote, produced and recorded along with the help from mentor Angelo Santi and some of Sacramento's local musician friends he was with at the time.
