We'd like to welcome two old friends as the newest members of the Penny Knight Collective ...
Dan Barnum (keys/vocals)
: Dan goes way back with many of us, musically ... founding member of Kashmir (1978-1980) and EQ member (1980). Dan has also played with Akaysha, Drama, Drakkar, RockProject and a few other bands through the mid 1990s, at which point, he "retired" from music.
The decision to do a Kashmir Reunion was the catalyst to Dan joining PKB. Glad to have him in the fold again! (Photo courtesy of Art Parisi)
Matt Spataro (guitar)
: Matt, also a former member of Akaysha and Drama, is a high school bud of PKB member, Richard Parks. They dedicated their teen years to copping Wishbone Ash, Allman Brothers and YES licks together.
Matt has also been thrust back into musical performance, after a retirement of 25+ years, and we're damned happy he's succumbed to the pressure we've applied to coerce him into joining us!
