D.W. D’wood (guitar and vocals)
Hailing from Kansas City, Missouri, D’wood bought his first guitar in ’71 and has been influenced by the amazing Rev. Willy G ever since, offering up phenomenal renditions of those trademark guitar licks and blues rooted vocals that are the essence of ZZ Top. D’Wood has performed nation wide for over three decades, with such artists as the late Jimmie Van Zant from the Lynyrd Skynyrd family, as well as being cast as Keith Richards in the internationally acclaimed Rolling Stones experience “Satisfaction.”
Edmond Spencer (bass and vocals)
Edmond’s musical journey started in 1977, playing gigs throughout the Midwest and eventually landing in L.A., attending BIT Musical Institute and studying under bass guitar guru Tim Bogart. Through the years of dedication, Edmond has developed musical skills that have allowed him to travel and perform nationally as well as internationally with such artists as Ross Childress from Collective Soul. Edmond is proud to deliver the look, sound, and persona of the immortal Dusty Hill.
Pat Tomek (drums)

First, in 2011, with The Rainmakers, doing eight albums of original material between 1986 and 2014, the first three on Mercury Records, including MTV videos and extended tours with Berlin, Big Country, Kansas, and the Doobie Brothers, and much touring as a headliner in Europe.
