The Fabulous Rhythmatics are a 5 piece dance band, playing mostly blues and rhythm & blues music. As the Island Sounder newspaper recently wrote, "Roll out the rhythm, pound out the pace, and don the dance shoes, because these guys won't wait for anybody".
The Rhythmatics are: James Barkshire on vocals and guitar; Roger McGilvrey, drums; Steve Keys, vocals, guitar and harmonica; Michael Adams, vocals and bass guitar; and Teddy Deane, saxes & flute. It's a weekend band, and most of us hold down regular jobs. That's because the islands are too small to make a living playing music full time all year. We've moved here for the natural beauty and the laid back lifestyle. But make no mistake --band members have some serious musical history under their belts. The boys hail from the Midwest and Canada as well as the Left Coast, and have spent many years gigging all over North America.
