The Band

Rob Wallace (Vocals, percussion) - Rob Wallace has extensive experience as a lead vocalist on the eastern Iowa music scene for over 20 years, and has fronted several popular eastern Iowa bands including Stranded in Iowa, Jampact, The Toys and Strange Exchange. Rob lived in Los Angeles in the mid 80's, fronting vocals for an aspiring L.A. rock band to a record contract. In the early 90's Rob made his way to Nashville, recording background vocals for several studios and recording his original songs with several Nashville up and coming artists including back up band members for veterans Susie Bogus and Wynonna Judd. Rob will bring his distinctive vocal talents to sing the rock, country and R&B songs people want to hear and dance to in eastern Iowa.

Mike Williams (Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, Harmonica, Vocals) - An Iowa Music Hall of Fame inductee, Mike has gained the reputation of being one of Iowa's most talented musicians. He has been signed to two recording contracts, recorded four albums, has received two Grammy Nominations, and has won the coveted Martin Country Guitar Championship. He has also had the exciting opportunity of working for CMA Label of the Year, Centaur Records from Los Angeles, CA. Mike's website is www.SlideWilliams.com

Christopher Bird (Bass, Tuba, Vocals) - Christopher Bird teaches band at Harding Middle School, and tuba and euphonium at Coe College in Cedar Rapids. He plays in several ensembles around eastern Iowa including: Brass Transit Authority, Motherlode, Electric Mule, Holiday Road, The Eastern Iowa Brass Band, The Iowa Vanguard Jazz Collective and The Cedar Rapids Municipal Band. A native of western Pennsylvania, he received his Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and his Master's Degree in Tuba Performance from Penn State University. Chris has performed in numerous and varied rock and jazz projects over the past 20 years. He has backed up many prominent artists including The Fifth Dimension, Eartha Kitt, Bob Mintzer, Marvin Stamm, Steve Houghton and Gary Burton. Truly dedicated to the concept of "In the pocket groove", Bird delivers a bottom that can still be felt well after the gig is over. After all, isn't that what it's all about anyway?

Alex Beamer (Drums) - Alex Beamer is the Principle Conductor of the Eastern Iowa Brass Band, Director of Bands and Percussion at St. Ambrose University, and a freelance percussionist. He brings extensive experience on drums to Electric Mule, including a year long stint in Nashville, where he played drums in various country and rock bands four to six nights a week. Mr. Beamer recently completed a master's degree in Orchestral Conducting at the University of New Mexico (Albuquerque, NM) and a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Messiah College. His principle conducting teachers include Dr. Jorge Perez-Gomez, Dr. Timothy Dixon, and Dr. Bradley Genevro. He has studied percussion with Steve Fidyk, Chris Rose, Doug Cardwell and David Knott.
