Meet the Group

Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar

Janet has spent the past twenty-five years sharing the stage with her many musical comrades in numerous bands in New York and Massachusetts including SHINDIG!, The Job Creators, The Sofa Kings, JD and the Harmony Horde, Space Blessings, and Miss Havisham’s Band. When not channeling the likes of Janis Joplin and Linda Ronstadt in front of music-loving crowds, she can be found channeling Shakespeare and Dickinson in front of her high school English students.
Keyboard, Vocals

Bob has been playing music his whole life. As a child listening to his mother play “The Theme From Dr. Zhivago” on the family's Wurlitzer organ, he said, “I can play that!” and continued the song while reading the music - he was hooked. After playing in various bands through the late 80s and 90s, he took time off to raise his two boys alongside his wife. He then started playing again, first for many years with the dance band Downtown 6 out of Middletown, CT - until the pandemic hit. Coming out of the pandemic, he was looking for a rock and roll band and joined AXIS. He is the lead sound engineer and a keyboard player for The Bridge, the band at his church. For fun, he coaches high school track and field for fun and tries to ride his bicycle 100 miles a week.

Jeff resides in Westfield with his wife Nancy, where he practices law and advises financial organizations. He has written extensively about rock and jazz, interviewing some of his favorite bass players, including Tina Weymouth (Talking Heads), Oteil Burbridge (Allman Brothers, Dead & Company), Christian McBride, and Larry Grenadier. His podcast Straight No Chaser - A Jazz Show is a five-time winner of JazzTimes’ Reader’s Poll Award for Best Podcast.
Lead Guitar, Mandolin

"He heard one guitar, just blew him away,
He saw stars in his eyes, and the very next day.
Bought a beat up six string, in a secondhand store,
Didn't know how to play it, but he knew for sure,
That one guitar, felt good in his hands,
Didn't take long to understand,
Just one guitar, slung way down low,
Was a one way ticket, only one way to go."

~ Lou Gramm & Mick Jones
