The Remnants consist of two major players, Ron Yapo and Mike Davison. These two guitar players met back in 1981. The two common vices they have is playing music. These two players finally grouped together to form a group called Rolling Thunder back in 1986. Ron played bass and Mike played lead guitar. They brought in Jim Magee as lead vocalist and Bob Tull as the drummer. During the course of the years, changes were made, Ron ended up playing rhythm guitar and lead vocals. Jim became the bass player. The group disbanded in 1988. Ron met up with Mike again in 1991 and formed another group called Black Road with drummer Greg Barnes. In 1994 they brought in Valerie Johnson, then formed the group "Stained Glass". For those of you locals, Valerie has made a name for herself in the music business playing with Janis Joplin's old group "Big Brother Holding Company", way to go Val! Also for the first time Ron and Mike incorporated a keyboard player, Mo Martinez. Mo currently has a bikini modeling production career going on "Zenitram Productions" and at the same time plays in a group in Hawaii. He got to be buds with "Ricky Martin". and has been invited to join him for a jam in Puerto Rico. Within a year the group disbanded and everyone went their own way. Ron and Mike stuck it out together. In 1996 they brought in a bass player named Lee Wilson. He was known as the professor. By 1998 they incorporated Pistol Pete Boucher, then they were known as "Peat's Dragon". Before the year 2000, changes were being made again. In August of 2000, Lee Wilson passed away. Now our drummer Pete Boucher is going under the knife for back surgery. Mike and Ron were searching for the right drummer and bass player and every time a new musician became part of the band, we had to name a new band. Our new bass player is Frankie Flea of "The Frankie Flea Band". He's come to join forces with our band to make our rhythm section strong. We recently acquired another drummer named Shake Ahmadi. He has several years playing Jazz, but he has caught on these past weeks and we find that he fits in well with the group. Now after short hiatus we will be back out again teaching Rock n Roll the way it is suppose to be, raw and powerful. We are the storytellers to refresh the minds of those on how Rock and Roll really sounded like. To teach rock and roll history to the new generation of kids of all ages. Experience Vintage Rock.
