Garcia (Lead Vocals / Guitars) has a golden ear and has forgotten more about singing lead and harmony than you will ever learn. He once met Jerry when he was tripping and J thought he was looking into a mirror.
El Guapo plays lead guitar and sings for Swell. He also makes a plethora of guitars and mandolins in Divide, CO as Blues Road Guitars. Some people think he looks like Eric Clapton or Trey Anastasio. Most don't.
"Steve the Pirate"
Bassist Steve Gulbine is a multi-instrument musician, songwriter, and performer. He's also probably the nicest guy you'll ever meet.
Swell heard rumors of a drummer who was so talented, that the jealous music gods trapped him in a dimension where he could not show them up with his mad beats. We rescued him and now he plays for us. The music gods were not happy.
Rico is Swell's secret weapon - he not only plays killer guitar riffs, but also adds multi-part harmony vocals to our mix. Rico is a music guru and knows every song ever written. But he only plays the good ones.
