Two guitarists, Stevie Coyle and Glenn Houston, originally The Quitters,
will now be joined by bassist extraordinaire Chris Kee who moved back to
the Bay Area earlier this year. Chris has officially joined The Quitters,
transforming them from a duo into a trio. Each having quit some of the best
bands in the business, Coyle, Houston, and now Kee have joined forces to
become a right-handed, right-side up fingerpicking and left-handed upside
down flatpicking twosome with a classically-trained cellist who has joined
them as an Americana bassist. Audiences are delighted. The three perform
mostly acoustic but some electric and there is much serendipity.
Jennifer Reason, Pianist
We loved her when she accompanied Terry Barber, but Jennifer Reason is
an artist in her own right. Hailed as a pianist "in the league of Carnegie
Hall," a "rising star" whose playing is "lush, sensual and colorful: like
a painting" (Sulzbach-Rosenberger, Germany), who possesses an "extraordinary
skill" (D. Frantztreb, S.C.C.), Jennifer Reason is a vibrant young performer
in consistent demand, and the recipient of Sacramento Business Journal's
Top 40 Under 40 Award for 2016. She gave her first solo recital at the age
of 5, and had acquired her first Staff Pianist position by the tender age
of 12. She has since gone on to appear in solo and ensemble performances
across Europe, the United States and Canada.
We welcome back vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, classical guitarist,
comedian and songwriter, Andy Hackbarth who performed for us in 2019. Andy

performer I have ever seen
He has a natural charisma on stage, a
mesmerizing virtuosity on the guitar, and a voice that completely.
