VOCALS, KEYBOARD & PERCUSSION
Heather exudes warmth and a fun-loving nature; Cute to the core & filled with an endless supply of energy, she is always ready to hit the stage running & give you a fabulous show. And is it EVER a FABULOUS show. Don’t let her size fool you, she may be little – but her voice is not. Smooth and vivacious – you will be entranced by her voice in minutes and always listening for more. As a Buffalo native, Heather has dabbled in a wide variety of musical styles in Western NY, and has a fondness for too many genres to name here. She was formerly involved in Gospel choirs, & an all-female acapella group, and the takeaway from those experiences was that she realized she absolutely loved creating and performing harmony. She also has been involved in main stream rock bands (most recently – Sudden Urge) and enjoys the edginess of ripping into a rock tune. So meeting Triple Threat and realizing she could fuse together those two things she loves - Belting out Rock AND creating unique Harmonies – she knew this was her new home, and so did we.
Todd, lead guitarist extraordinaire, has 25 plus years experience in the Buffalo music scene. He is known for his attention to detail & his ability to play whatever the moment inspires at the drop of a hat. He has played with too many bands to mention them all, but a few you may recognize are Ovation, The Psychodelix, McCarthyizm, and Tom Stahl & the Dangerfields. He got his start playing in his teens, when he picked up a guitar "hoping to pick up chicks". That didn't work... But since he already bought the guitar he figured he'd keep playing anyway. That turned out to be a good decision, since it led him to play with Triple Threat; We wouldn't be the same without him.
DRUMS & PERCUSSION
Craig began playing drums at the age of four, under the watchful eyes and ears of Johnny Roland, principal percussionist of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. His childhood, exposure to the music of The Beatles, The Who and Cream fueled his passion for more diverse and creative forms of rock music. He was intrigued by the complexities of the British progressive rock movement, which allowed for more experimental playing and self-expression. Listening to the likes of Emerson Lake and Palmer, King Crimson and Genesis, led him to explore some of the more instrumental stylings associated with jazz and “jazz fusion” which is the hybrid of rock and jazz. The virtuosity displayed by many of these musicians continues to inspire and influence Craig to this day.
Craig is also a member of the local progressive rock group “Random Order”.
Mike was involved in music since the early age of eight playing organ, piano & trumpet. His music influences are very diverse, with everything from Kansas to Avenged Sevenfold & The Rippingtons. When he was a sophomore in high school his best friend was putting together a band that did not have a bassist. He bought a bass guitar from the classifieds and was playing in a band the next day. Ironically he never played in THAT band. The group that he did join though played through high school & reunited much later as In Plain View. Mike has thoroughly made up for lost time rocking, and has been playing in & around WNY over the last several years wherever he gets the chance. Mike keeps the bottom end low & mean and adds his metal influence whenever possible.
