Meet the Players...

Tim Bush: Acoustic Guitar and Lead vocals
Tim started singing at a very young age in church and school choirs. He learned to play the guitar just after high school, and began writing songs shortly thereafter.
He has written rock, soft rock, country and Christian songs. He is currently working on his first album entitled
"A New Day Will Dawn". His prior bands include "BOOKENDZ" and "HY-5".

Mike Scimmi: Bass Guitar/vocals
Mike, or Mr. Scimmi, as his sixth grade students refer to him has been playing bass for over 30 years.
In addition to playing in local bands such as SHADOWFAX, STAGGER LEE, TIME LAPSE, MISSING LYNX, ROUTE 66, THE EDGE, THE SHOOTERS, and BROTHERVILLE. Mike has traveled on the road with a show band called PENTAGON, which performed in Atlantic City and hotel chains along the east coast... "His talent and bottom end sound drives him to the top of the class."

Tom Pastor : Drums and Percussion/vocals
I have been playing drums for about thirty-five years ( I’m giving away my age) . I’ve played with a number of bands including ECLIPSE, KNIGHTRIDERS, DISORGANIZED CRIME and 6 FOOT SYMUN.
Influential drummers include Neil Peart (RUSH) Mike Portnoy (DREAM THEATER), Phil Collins (GENESIS),
Phil Ehart (KANSAS), Buddy Rich and, of course, Curly Howard’s One Man Band (THREE STOOGES).
In 2012,Mike and Tim asked me if I wanted to join them and after some thought and hesitation on my part, I said “Why Soitenly” !! Until I found HAMILTON AVENUE I had forgotten how much fun it is to make music and to play for an appreciative audience. I look forward to playing a long time with these guys and hope we can entertain you some day.
Equipment: I use a YAMAHA DTX-540 electronic drum kit w/49 pre-set kits and 21 user programmable kits and have a TAMA SUPERSTAR double bass 17 piece kit w/10 various ZILDJIAN cymbals and TAMA hardware at home (my 1st kit from 1982 thanks to a Neil Peart influence).

Michael Mann

I’ve been playing guitar and singing since I was 15 years old and wrote my first song at that age. I’ve played in bands since I was 17 and played most of the Ground Rounds in Illinois as a duo to earn extra money through high school. I play Rock, Country Rock, Classic Rock, Folk, Banjo, and Country. I love three part harmonies.  I’ve played in numerous bands over the years; most recently, The Blue Sky Band, (Texas), Lilly Wine Affair, PA, and Bridgewater Station, PA  Influences: Joe Bonamassa, Eagles, Bob Seger, Jackson Browne, Crosby Stills and Nash, and quite frankly, all great music.
