Our Story

George Martinovich - Bass, Flute, Vocals:
Born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, George studied classical music.  When he heard Elvis, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee and the British Invasion groups, it changed his life.  George entered an American Idol type of show and took home second place.  Performing behind the “Iron Curtain,” George's bands were barely tolerated and were often stopped by the police.  In 1973 George moved to California and his most memorable gig was in Scottsdale, AZ, where he opened for Jerry Lee Lewis's 60th birthday concert.  George penned the score for a contemporary ballet based on “A Christmas Carol."  It was performed in OC, California for over 10 years.  George's Facebook Page
