Robert Thomas Jr.
Two Time Grammy Award Winner Robert Thomas Jr. is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest percussionists in music history. Legendary Bassist Jaco Pastorius discovered Robert playing at a local jazz benefit in Miami one night and asked Robert for his card. A month later the phone rang in the middle of the night, it was Jaco calling, asking if Robert would like to audition for Weather Report. Robert had never heard of the group before but agreed anyway. Little did he know that Pastorius had bet Joe Zawinul, the leader of Weather Report, a large sum of money that they could fly Robert up to New Haven, Connecticut and audition him live on stage in front of 13,000 people and that Zawinul would be so impressed that he would hire Robert on the spot. Well, it happened, Robert got the job and Pastorius won the bet! Robert went on to be the only musician to play in All of Joe Zawinul's bands, Weather Report, Weather Update and The Zawinul Syndicate. Robert then became a core member of The Jaco Pastorius Word Of Mouth Band and his talents were also tapped by such greats as Ahmad Jamal, Stan Getz, Santana, Zoot Simms, Herbie Mann and Monty Alexander, to name just a few. Robert has released two albums as a leader. He is also known as one of the worlds master players of the PanArt Hang Drum. Robert is Godfather to both Felix and Julius Pastorius and has made music with them since they were children.

Felix and Julius Pastorius
Felix and Julius Pastorius are both South Florida natives, living in Deerfield Beach. They are twin brothers born to Jaco and Ingrid Pastorius. Felix and Julius started playing early and after the death of their father were mentored by Robert Thomas Jr; their Godfather. Felix and Julius have spent years honing their natural found abilities. Felix has played early on with Victor Wooten and Jeff Coffin and The Mutet. Last year, Felix was asked to join the legendary Yellow Jackets to fill in for co-leader and bassist Jimmy Haslip and has since traveled the world with them to great critical acclaim. Julius has been touring with guitar legend Mike Stern in a trio with another Weather Report and Zawinul Syndicate alumni, bassist Victor Bailey.
