Guitarist Daryl Stuermer - Bursting onto the international music scene in 1975, Daryl toured Europe with critically acclaimed jazz violinist Jean-Luc Ponty and went on to record three innovative albums with him. Since becoming lead guitarist and a touring member of the super-group Genesis in 1978, Daryl Stuermer has toured the world to sold-out crowds with both Genesis and as an original member of Phil Collins band. Stuermer has created the signature lead guitar sound of many Phil Collins mega hits including "In the Air Tonight" and "Easy Lover".
Today Daryl Stuermer continues to perform with his five piece group, The Daryl Stuermer Band, which truly showcases his unique blend of rock and jazz guitar and continues to expand on over 30 years of musical accomplishments. Between world tours and hit recordings, Daryl Stuermer has released eight solo albums of original music and covers his favorite Genesis tunes along the way on 2002's "Another Side of Genesis."
Keyboardist Kostia Efimov was recognized as a prodigy from age 4, and studied classical piano in Soviet Russia during his entire childhood. He continued his passionate interest in music and ultimately graduated from the prestigious St. Petersburg Conservatory.
By 1989 he had developed a keen obsession with jazz and pop music and decided to travel from St. Petersburg to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to take part in a cultural exchange program. Within two weeks of his first concert at the Milwaukee Art Museum he was offered a recording contract with Narada Records and went on to perform with icons of the American pop music scene.
Kostia also composes soundtracks for film and theater productions and has recorded solo albums including “Suite St. Petersburg” and “10 Pebbles.” He has been performing with Daryl since 1990, and continues to be his go-to guy for numerous projects.
