About The Band

One evening Dr. Rockinstein and Skyntyte pondered the possibility of forming a band capable of providing great vocals and virtuoso musicianship. Fast Lane Band is the result.

Skyntyte's credentials include tutelage under rock-n- roll pioneer Bo Diddley and Parliament-Funkadelic keyboard wiz, Bernie Worrell. The list of artists he has shared the stage with is long and varied: Chic, Teddy Pendergrass, Stephanie Mills, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and when not performing with Fast Lane, he plays and sings with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, Original Parliament.....Dr. Rock studied music theory at Boston College and is an accomplished jazz pianist, playing in various musical combinations since childhood. Josh Hoffenberg 's considerable drumming chops is essential to the Fast Lane Band's back beat. He lays the groove that locks in the bass, and you can't help stop movin', Keith "Mr. Ladd" Ladd bring bottom prowess to the Fast Lane Band's back beat. He latches to Josh's beats to make the groove that drives Fast Lane. Cesar "CC" Catregena's journey originates in Ecuador, through NYC and Maryland and Chicago. He was a gigging musician in the Baltimore/DC area before becoming a stellar soloist in the Univ. of Chicago Jazz Ensemble. He furthered his musical education for several years as a musician for the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.

Rounding out the band is Michelle "Velvet" Banfield. aka "the Speed Bump." Michelle comes from Barbados by way of NYC and brings forth her sultry alto to diva perfection.
