Michael May is a vocalist/guitarist and has been a fixture on the Tampa Bay cover scene for over twenty years.

He has recorded original music and has sang or played in several Tribute Bands including Almost Styx, Barracuda and Purple Machine. Mike can be found at Seminole Music which he owns and operates.
Inspired by performance, Jason Lawrence started out playing piano, participating in small plays, and dabbling in drums around age 5. Born in Tallahassee, Florida, he began taking drum lessons at age 10 with local school band directors who encouraged him to continue his progress in the school band. Over the years of performance in various local and State concert, symphonic, jazz and marching band solo and ensemble events, he was able to hone his skills while playing multiple instruments including snare drum (marching band), xylophone, vibraphone, marimba, tympani drums, and drum set; achieving many superior rating honors. It was during this time that his passion for music was fueled, as he was able to study various ensemble instrumentations and learn where he fit in the music. Since moving to Tampa in 2003, he has played in several cover and original bands and done various studio drumming recordings.
