Chris is our lead guitarist and one of our three lead vocalists. From playing classical acoustic guitar for your ceremony, to shredding AC/DC solos, Chris can play anything. Chris's party mix of Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Bob Marley and more dials up the fun for cocktail hour to start your reception right. When he's not rockin' out with us, you can find Chris playing solo gigs at watering holes throughout Southern Maine.
Ask any working musician, they'll tell you that Darren is one of the best sax players in the Northeast. Cool jazz, soulful R & B, ripping rock solos, and everything in between. As if his insanely good playing isn't enough, Darren's infectious charisma will get your party started. Looking for a chilaxing Sunday brunch? Want to hear more Darren? Check out his solo gigs at coffee houses, restaurants and pubs all over Maine.
Rob is our lead vocalist and bass player, but you can also find him playing jazz guitar during our dinner set. On top of that, he also plays a mean harmonica. Whether it's Billy Joel or Bruno Mars, Rob nails it. Rob's voice shines the most on the soulful classics. When not rockin' out with the Time Pilots, Rob's passion is singing and playing the blues as bandleader of the Delta Knights.
Known as the human metronome, Jeff locks into a beat and doesn't let go. Jeff's grooves are ridiculously on point. Whether it's rock, jazz, country, reggae, or any other style of music, Jeff brings just the right feel to create a musical pocket where the magic happens. Jeff's talents are well known. He has recorded, played live and toured with many different bands.
John is our keyboard wizard. Classical, jazz, pop, funk, rock, and literally any other genre of music you can think of. You name it, and this guy can play it. When not rockin' out with Time Pilots, John is one of the most sought-after keyboard players in Maine. John also has an incredible ability to add just the right vocal harmonies to any song, but more than anything, he's just a heck of a nice guy to have around.
