Scott Macfeat - Guitars, Vocals

 scott

Guitarist and vocalist Scott Macfeat began playing and singing over thirty years ago. Joining the band Progress in 1980 Scott started his musical journey. The next ten years Scott found himself in Force Five, Times Square, Wired, Thunderstruck and County Line. After taking a break from bands Scott put together Red Thread in 2000.

Whenever Scott plays it becomes clear that he was influenced early on by great guitarist such as Jeff Beck, Joe Perry, Ritchie Blackmore, Jimmy Page, Steve Howe and George Harrison. 

2005, Scott made a big splash in the Lancaster area with the band, Off the Kuff.  Off the Kuff quickly got noticed. Unfortunately Scott had to move and Off the Kuff disbanded. Returning to the Lancaster area, Scott hooked up with his friend Dave Mutzabaugh  and put together OFF OUR ROCKERS.

Dave Mutzabaugh - Drums

daveVeteran drummer, Dave Mutzabaugh  has played in numerous bands over the years including –BitterSuite, Uncle Wiggley, Slapstick, Chickee LaVarr, Pressure, L.A. Rockers, Filthy Rich, Doc Roc and the Nuclear Dogs, The Stephan Nicholas Band, HYT, and now OFF OUR ROCKERS!

Listening to Dave play you will hear major influences such as Cork Young (Snake), Ringo Starr (Beatles), Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake, & Palmer), Bill Bruford (Yes & King Crimson), and Barriemore Barlow (Jethro Tull) all who have shaped Dave into the drummer he is today. 

A passion for all kinds of music has influenced his playing.   “I love classical music – there’s just nothing that gets me more excited than hearing a full symphony – it evokes so many emotions.”  Honky Tonk music of the mid 1900’s ,Pop and progressive music are also his favorites.  

Dave’s kit is extraordinary just to see.  A Tama floor tom and kick drum w/ Tama Speed Cobra double pedal; Pearl symphonic percussion toms and Pearl hardware; Paiste cymbals are only a few pieces of this left handed drummers impressive kit.  Behind him hang two huge Wuhan brass gongs.   “I’m not finished yet – it is a work in progress – I am interested in adding electronic percussion pads (or triggers), and special effects of sorts”.

When not drumming Dave loves to read, and has a good-sized library. His favorites are science fiction, horror, and biographies.  “I also enjoy writing and will be doing more of that when I retire.  My favorite movies / TV series are westerns, but I also love a very wide variety of comedies, ’60s & ’70s being my first choice”.

“I’ve been trying to be a drummer for 51 years, and I think I’m catching on to how it works.  I love to talk shop, so please don’t hesitate to approach me at our shows.”

Jeff Barninger - Guitar, Vocals

 jeff

 

Jeff Barninger’s musical journey is like a lyric from Bryan Adams’s Summer of 69. Maybe more Christmas of 66 that’s when Jeff got his first guitar and amp. First song was Louie Louie, next came Wipe Out and then the classic "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida".  Jeff hungered for more so in 1967 he began to take guitar lessons from Dale Fryberger and in 1969 joined Emery Frie. Jeff first jammed with now Rocker band mate, Dave Muztenbaugh in 1973. Later on Jeff bounced around in various bands including Fast Cookies and next the Jetz. 

 

Like many “rockers” Jeff took a vacation from music for about fifteen years to raise a family and rebuild a farmhouse. In 1999 music called him back and with the help of friend, Dale Duffy, Jeff joined Phantom Black. A few more years, a few more bands until 2015 when he joined Off Our Rockers.

 

Jeff’s knowledge of rock and roll is impressive as he can usually play any “rock” song from the past four decades simply from memory. A true “Rocker”.

Glenn Fields - Bass

polI started playing bass at the end of High school.  My youngest brother would jam in the garage with his buddies but they didn't have a bass player.  At the same time my brother turned me onto Rush in particular Hemispheres.  After listening to those lines and to the tone of the bass, it was clear I wanted to play bass.  So, I began taking lessons and learning songs by ear.  The first song I learned was Hey Joe by Jimmi Hendrix.  I joined a band, Dealers Choice and later Paradox playing in the Lebanon area. 

Afterward I joined the Navy and jammed with a variety of folks playing 80's style rock and heavy metal doing shows overseas while on deployment.  I then got into Jazz, Blues genres and of course playing Classic Rock.  So, I've been influence by a variety of Bass Players notably Geezer Butler(Black Sabbath), Steve Harris(Iron Maiden),  Geddy Lee(Rush), John Entwistle(The Who), Jaco Pastorius(Weather Report), Gary Thain(Uriah Heep).  Last but certainly not least Chris Squire(Yes), best pick style player ever.  I mostly play finger style and occasionally use a pick depending on the song.  I'm looking forward to rockin' out with these guys and to see you at our gigs.
