Out of Control
Living the dream - The B-Movie Kings are: Ted Gautier - As our lead singer, Ted's main instrument is his robust diaphragm, which allows him to belt out both rockers and ballads with considerable style and range. Ted can also wail on his tenor saxophone for those yakkity sax leads.He got an early start, singing his first gospel songs in a Montana church starting at age four, then at age twelve picking up the sax in the school band. His tasteful rendition of 'Wounded on the Dance Floor' show his vocal range well. Nick Adams - Born and raised in Santa Cruz, California (the home of the 'Kings'), Nick has been strumming and picking since his college days. Simply put, without Nick, there would be no band - from the 'Jay Birds' (Nicks first band) to the 'B-Movie Kings' Nick has been the force that's kept it going. Most of the songs on the album are his. From the rhythm lick on 'King Funk' to the the driving line under 'Texas Woman' Nick can handle a guitar. Rich Burgan - He fell out of the sky with a Carvin bass in his hands and a song in his heart. His lead vocal work in 'Texas Woman' and 'All You Got To Give Me' showcases his excellent voice and his bass work on 'King Funk' and 'Hold On' are a club dancers dream. His background harmonies push the band to another level. Marty Dolciamore - Born in NYC a bunch of years ago, Marty has been rocking since 1962. The only 'King' who has been in a B-Movie (Roger Corman's 'Lady in Red') Marty supports his creative mojo using either his guitar, keyboard or his acting skills. Teaming with Nick almost twelve years ago, Marty's guitar work can be heard on 'All You Got to Give Me' and 'King Funk'. Along with Rich and Ted, Marty also helps out with background harmonies. Zack Olsen - Where do you find a drummer on two days notice that'll show up to play a gig at 6:30 in the morning at a radio station in San Jose? That would be Crazy Zack! Zack's steady groove set's up all of the 'Kings' songs. A Santa Cruz boy who toured with 'Slow Gherkin' (Santa Cruz Ska band) Zack is the youngest of the 'Kings' but his chops are tops.
