Mat Britain has pursued his love of percussion from the plains of Kansas to the island of Trinidad where he performed with the Amoco Renegades Steel Band at the prestigious Panorama Festival. Living in Nashville, Tennessee, he leads his popular steel band, Deep Grooves, and is active in the recording industry. From 1996 to 1999, Britain was percussionist with Grammy Award winning Country/Pop artist Lee Greenwood.

Dan Moore followed his dream of being a percussionist from the big state of Texas to the Big Ten University of Iowa where he is a professor of music and Percussion Area Head. His performance energies focus on his brainchild, the MIDI-marimba, a unique setup that he developed to augment the acoustic sounds of the marimba with electronically-triggered sounds.
