Ric E. See... is an native of Altoona PA . Piano started the musical journey at age five. Drums were an interest at eleven. Guitar and bass took over at sixteen. Guitar became a lifelong obsession.
College music studies were complimented with guitar and voice lessons.
That resume and local band experience culminated in being offered a position with Larry Alltop and The Exciters from Boston.
The result was a three year international tour. The end of that tour brought a move to Boston; writing, recording, and playing all original compositions. Label and radio attention focused into opening for headline bands.
Ric is currently teaching privately and has written a unique guitar teaching method which has been published. He recently started teaching music at Penn State Altoona.
Beau ... Started playing area bars & clubs in 1968 with The Untouchables. Over the years he has kept time for some of the best muscians in the area. In the 70's & 80's he was the drummer for some of the most popular bands (FM and Xeno) in central Pa. He semi-retired in the 90's. He has recently played drums for The British Invasion and Ricky Lee & The Mustangs and is currently the drummer for R2B2.
