Our band evolved through the years. Many of my musicians, friends, and voluteers where more like family. And, I would be remiss if I forgot to acknowledge them and their love of music--Dale Rollins
Matt served as Dale's co-arranger for the orchestra version of the China Clipper Theme; music bed for our live radio-theater. Today Matt is an accomplished artist in Celtic-Irish music. While much of his efforts were behind the scenes, we will always consider him an Honorary Member of the Band!
Joe Shorten served as Music Director for our stage show. Also helped Dale co-arrange our instrumental China Clipper Theme. Be sure to check out his own CD project in our ships store!
Randy had played with Country artists Lynn Anderson, Mel Tillis, Jana Jae, Roy Clark, and Carl Jackson. So, when he agreed to join the group in the early days we were delighted. He wasn't able to join us for the Bi-Centennial, but Randy will always be considered an Honorary Member of the Band.
