Born and raised in San Francisco, Walter’s interest in drumming began at age 6 after hearing the backbeat of the song “Satisfaction”. The TV show “The Monkees” inspired him to take up the instrument only a short while later. Playing professionally since 1978, Walter’s influences span many genres including rock, pop, r&b, soul, Latin jazz and jazz fusion. Walter has studied privately with Dan Sabanovich for many years, and taken lessons from some of the best of the best, including Elvin Jones, Terry Bozzio, Rick Latham, Steve Smith and Simon Phillips.
Having grown up playing classical piano, Roberto “Bert” Bayardo switched to guitar at the age of 18 when he realized it would be too difficult to take his Steinway to college. His playing is heavily influenced by musicians from his home state of Texas, including Stevie Ray Vaughn, Chris Duarte, and Eric Johnson. Not content to be just another Texas guitar slinger, his other musical interests span a variety of genres ranging from jam bands to progressive rock and metal.
