Rick Fink - vocals
With a killer voice and a dangerous stage presence, Rick Fink (after successfully fronting rock bands for years) found his true calling when he formed the Gas House Gorillas. His song writing skills and boundless high energy performances blur the lines that separate Jump Blues, Rock,and vintage Rhythm & Blues, creating an experience that can only be had at a Gorillas’ show. As a matter of fact, he’s almost as good as he thinks he is! Rick has had a major label deal (Sony Records), a management deal, and several independent releases to his credit.
Crusher Carmean - bass
Named “Crusher” because of his penchant for turning a perfectly good instrument into kindling, Carmean is a thrill to watch. He finally had to build something that could withstand the kicking, spinning and tossing that his trademark aluminum bass endures on a nightly basis. Funny, unpredictable and infectious are all fitting descriptions of this superior showman! Crusher has played with Sleepy LaBeef, the Razorbacks, the Rockats and was the founding member of the Crescent City Maulers.
Jim Davis - sax
Jim is the real thing! Back in the day he cut his teeth working only the finest seedy strip joints between his hometown Boston and New York City. One of the few old school honkers on the planet, the Gorillas are swingin' and rockin' harder than ever before with Jim in the band! Armed with a sardonic wit and more than a few musical surprises up his sleeve, Seltzer Jim is a Gorilla par excellence!!! Jim has played and recorded with Sleepy LaBeef, Steve Lucky, Hubert Sumlin, Junior Watson and former President Bill Clinton, to name a few.
Oscar Rodriguez - guitar
At the tender age of 24 he has been tearing up the fret board for nearly 9 years building a solid reputation locally as an amazingly versatile musician and an all around nice guy. Young Oscar is a recent New School Graduate who has studied with Gary Lucas (from Captain Beefheart) and shared the stage with famed saxophonist Greg Osby among others. But surely, you may say, all of that fine education could hardly be depended upon to prepare him for the reckless mayhem of a Gas House Gorillas' performance! Not to worry, Gorilla Friends. We're bringing him along slowly. Welcome aboard, Kid. Um…That's MY seat…
Eddie Everett - drums
Eddie is a killer drummer and a five star Gorilla! In addition to his fine skills as a musician, he's got mad tattoos and one hell of a fine wardrobe. It's the little things, Folks! Eddie's played venues all over the world performing with artists like Brian Setzer, Wanda Jackson, David Bromberg, Tommy Conwell and The Rockats. Oh, and he's got a cool name...EDDIE EVERETT!!!
