With more than 20 years of pro experience in bands, Patrick brings a robust guitar playing to 925’s line up. When he was 14 he started his first band as lead guitarist and singer in Paris (where he’s originally from). His background and influence take sources from iconic guitarists and rock bands such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dire Straits, and Toto. Over the years, his classic rock foundations evolved towards a wider range of sounds and inspirations, leading to pop/funky style bands in the 90’s. Patrick is also involved in original music projects with Push and The Redeye Poet.

Carol is the percussionist for the 925 Band. She started playing music in grammar school where she took piano lessons from two very strict teachers. One was a Dominican nun in Bernal Heights, San Francisco. Sister Clarissa used a wooden ruler to enforce proper timing and hand posture. The other teacher was a Russian pianist who was equally strict. It is not surprising that Carol does not play piano publicly, but enjoys playing the tambourine, shaker, guiro, blocks, clave, salsa cow bell, chimes, congas, electronic percussion and bongos!
