The Baker Thomas Band is an eclectic group of musicians who have one big sound! Horns, violin, mandolin, dueling guitars, bass and drums with a revolving cast of guest characters who join in every now and again, along with the regular band members. They consider themselves a rolling party and they want everyone to join their show! They even have character names for themselves: The Gator (Alan Goodrich on drums, vocals and song writer), Big Papa (the mover and shaker Jake Bush on accordion), The Secret Weapon (Steve Latanision on violin, electric mandolin, pedal steel and banjo. It's what you need to make the song pop!), The Legend (Hugh McGowan, cutting lead guitar and tenor voice), The Dirty Dancer (Tim Lewandowski, trombone, has been with BTB since the beginning), The Professor (Jim Larkin, drums, has his own signature look with round rimmed specs, an ironed collared shirt and wavy English Professor’s hair), The Siren (Sarah Miller, vocals, who jumped on board in early 2011), The Genius (Randi Bernier jumped on board October of 2011, plays keyboards as well as trumpet), The Ambassador (Noah Maltsberger on guitar with a countless collection of blistering licks), Pixi Stix (Maureen Pixi Stix on drums is always up for the show and always on stage with a killer smile and vibe), and The Ship's Captain (Tom Bianchi on bass and always the last man standing).
