Sara Coy  | Vocals
Sara Coy- Supreme Commander of Lead Vocals Originally from an obscure village in the western hemisphere, after traveling the world for twenty-ish years, Sara has come to call Charleston the home base of her endeavors.
Sara has made the interesting transfer of experience in theatre to the quantum rock realm . . a veteran of the Charleston theatre scene, Sara has performed with no less than six of the local theatre companies.
JC (Chris) McNeil  | Guitars and songwriting
At the age of 17, inspired by the sounds of Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page, JC (AKA "Chris") picked up the guitar and has hardly put it down since. Many years later, while recovering from a traumatic blender accident, he got serious about music and applied himself to learning music theory. JC has employed synesthesia strategies to practice and composition and a unique way of relating musical scales to a set of correspondences from mythology. McNeil’s improvisational style has been described as "Spacey Shred". Other influences include John Scofield, Miles Davis, Frank Zappa, and Allan Holdsworth.
Dave Kern  | Bass
Bassist Dave Kern, originally from Bethesda, Maryland, has now been living in Charleston 12 years. In Charleston, many may be familiar with him as a jazz bassist at the Mistral restaurant on Market Street.
Dave has played in styles ranging from 1960's style garage rock and rockabilly original rock in the DC area to jazz standards in the Charleston area.
Dan Stacy  | Drums
Drummer Dan Stacy got his start with local bands in the '70s playing downtown clubs and The Dancing Bear out on Folly Beach with White Dog and Piecework bands. After a tour in the Navy, he returned in the mid '80s to join The Nerve/Tin Catz for more of the same at Myskins, The Windjammer, Malibu East, The Sand Dollar, Berts, etc., etc. Dan relocated to New Orleans where he performed with numerous acts while taking lessons from notable Nawlins drummers.
Tommy Nelson  | Guitars
Growing up in Charleston, Tommy first began playing guitar in high school, and he soon started a band that no one now would remember. In college, he became a more occasional player but still let his love for music lead him on countless road trips. In 2008, while watching one of his favorite bands live, a light bulb went off and Tommy couldn’t excuse himself for not being more proactive with his passion for music. He went back to daily practice, and began working with guitar guru Frank Carlier. After a short hiatus from playing in a local cover band, he was very excited to find his place in the fusion influenced sound of of Air Sculptures.
