Two Cents Worth
Mark Ferrer & Kelly McLauren
Kelly McLauren, native to southern North Carolina, is the lead vocalist. Her voice is sort of a cross between Ann Wilson (of Heart) and Etta James. She'd be an easy winner for American Idol....too bad she's afraid to fly!
Mark Ferrer, originally from Upstate New York (Albany), handles the guitars, keyboards and vocals. He plays like (and has been told on more than one occasion resembles) Billy Joel on speed and has opened up for such national acts as Kansas, ELO, Chicago and David Crosby/Graham Nash.
