The two began collaborating and everything fell into place soon after. Already involved in the local music scene, the band was completed when close friends; Andre Beaudette (Drums and Percussion), Daniel Sahin (Lead guitar), Christian Yacono (Bass and Vocal) and Nick Grim (Trombone) committed to the group.

mathew tembo – Official Video
Mathew Tembo’s music fuses indigenous Zambia vibes with contemporary sounds to create a truly unique form. His latest album, Dadi Mwana, resounds in upbeat, Afro-fusion, reggae-fueled tracks featuring lyrics in various languages skillful married with music performed on handmade instruments – the silimba (local marimba), kalumbu (one stringed instrument) and kalimba (thumb piano). Mathew is a trailblazer, going against the musical status quo in Zambia of computerized pop. He has shared a stage with world music stars 3Ma and Oliver Mtukudzi, and has collabrated with Dr. Kenneth Kaunda, the guitar-playing freedom-fighting first president of Zambia. At his show, audiences simply cannot resist the urge to tap their toes, shake their hips and skank their way out of their seats and onto the dance floor. Outside of Zambia, he has played in Malawi, Kenya, Tanzania, Holland, Denmark, Germany, and the USA. Read more..

Jeff Roberts has loved music and played piano and electric keyboards since his early teens. Now into his early mid 20s (in his mind), he has gained an insurmountable amount of musical knowitallness.
Jeff’s talent have been used in several bands around the Michiana and surrounding areas for many years. His vast musical repertoire spans 40+ years of influences, from Pop to Rock to Jazz and everything in between. His love for “Island Music” was always a big part of his style but now he takes it to a new level. Expanding on this theme is what turned into the popular JTBuffet and their growing number of fanatic fans. Read more
