Fred Wilchek has been performing and teaching in the Washington DC area for over forty years. He moved to the area in 1969 to study classical guitar with John Marlow at The American University. After graduation, he became an instructor of guitar at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. Fred continued his guitar studies at the Peabody Conservatory where he received his Master's Degree. He currently teaches at his Alma mater, The American University, as well as the Washington Conservatory of Music in Bethesda and his home studio in Silver Spring. Fred performs in a variety of guitar styles including classical, jazz, funk, country and rock. In addition to his professional music endeavors, Fred volunteers his time and musical skills each month to participate as a regular member of Profusion, the Inwood Coffeehouse band.

Jazz bassist, guitarist, composer and director Joshua Bayer has performed at venues such as The Kennedy Center, The Detroit Opera House, Blues Alley, The Harlem Renaissance Festival, The World Jazz festival, The Phillips Collection, The Contemporary Theater Festival, The One Step Down, New York Museum Of Modern Art, National Public Radio, and Philadelphia's Chris's Jazz Café. Besides being featured on BET On Jazz and performing original new jazz with the Joshua Bayer Quartet, Josh has played with jazz artists Neal Creque, Dick Lurie, Ron Holloway, Marty Nau, The Federal Jazz Commision, and Chris Vadala. A teacher and clinician, Josh serves on the faculty of American University, where he is Musician in Residence and director of the AU Jazz Orchestra.

Herman Meyer has performed in the Baltimore-Washington area for more than thirty years as both a soloist and as a member of various ensembles. He received his degree in guitar performance from the Peabody Conservatory and currently teaches at the Washington Conservatory of Music.

After incessantly hearing his college roommate learning Metallica songs, Luke Mihalovic was inspired to pick up the guitar and give it a try for himself. With a healthy diet of blues, funk, rock, and jazz, he has spent the last 10 years crafting a sound that lends itself to his diverse musical palate. Under the tutelage of teacher Fred Wilchek and a myriad of YouTube videos, Luke has developed his chops into something he describes as, "listenable?" In 2012 he and a friend formed the band 10 Step Groove, a 5 piece funk/rock outfit based out of Baltimore, MD. The band has played bars, breweries, and festivals around the area including Artscape (the nations largest free arts festival), Dogfish Head brewery in Rehobeth, DE, and even opened for Karl Denson's Tiny Universe once.

Henry Godfrey is a drummer and composer from Rockville, MD. He currently is studying Jazz Composition at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where he performs with and composes for his fellow students and teachers. His eclectic approach to music makes his style unique and approachable to listeners of all walks of life.
