Jump Start was founded by guitarists Dave Becker and Steve Barbagallo formerly of The Klick Band.
Many months of auditions went into finding the current line up of great musicians, including Mike Strand on lead vocals, John Anderson on bass guitar and Harry Franklin on drums.
Jump Start aims to bring classic “danceable” rock to the Sarasota/Bradenton and Venice area with an energetic, interactive performance of great songs from the ’60’s – 80’s. The breadth of tunes is attributed to each member’s musical influences and spans music from the Rolling Stones, Grand Funk, The Eagles, CCR, Tom Petty, ZZ Top and Billy Idol, just to name a few.
Jump Start will be performing at multiple venues throughout the area and are available for private bookings by contacting Steve 805-625-2634 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
