renditions from Janis Joplin to Patti Smith. Donna's professionally trained
vocals have lead a number of bands in the NYC area.
Classically trained on piano, Steve Negri has been a member of national and
locally known rock & roll bands including Beatlemania and a Fore n' Aft favorite Cinema.
Dennis MacDonald is a long-time musician playing a variety of stringed
instruments. During the Fore n' Aft hay-day Dennis played in The Wandering
Minstrel Band and more recently with Roots Rock Revue and Not Too Late.

Name any song and Rob Libonati will play his guitar note for note.
Rob has played with a number of bands from "country to metal" and his
breath of talent lets GoodTime Charlies Band take any direction as needed.
Pete Panettiere plays his drum kit as if it was seamlessly intertwined with
the other musicians. No beat goes missed or worst... misplaced. Pete is the
glue that holds the band together and move it forward at the proper pace.
