He and Richard were the founding members of the rock project Tiger and the Helix that toured Europe and Eastern Canada in the mid-nineties. Andy does a lot of film score and session work in southern CA and produces his own rock project ‘The Beggarwoods‘
George Bernardo (drums and percussion)
George met Richard in the Tampa Bay area, and became part of an acoustic offshoot of the Tiger and the Helix project before moving to southern CA at the beginning of the ‘Twirl’ sessions. He is extremely active in the southern CA live music scene, studio production, and tours internationally in with the band Cash’d Out. George is one of the busiest musicians we know.
Doug Lunn 1954-2017 (bass)
Doug was one of Southern California’s most seasoned bass players, and his reputation as a consummate artist is well established. He was the music director for Peter Buffett’s ‘Spirit Dance‘ project, and in 2011 put out his solo album The Doug Lunn Project, featuring Vinnie Colaiuta, Dimitris Mahlis and George Bernardo. Doug was a tremendous asset to all the projects he contributed to, and his influence goes beyond music as one of those rare humans, whose example and integrity spoke volumes.
