Meet the band

Teal Collins (vocals/ukulele/guitar) is a powerhouse who has released 4 albums, toured the US and Europe extensively with her original band The Mother Truckers and had her songs featured in TV and film, including the HBO series True Blood. Teal has recorded sessions for Grammy award winning producers Narada Michael Walden (Whitney Houston) and Stephen Bray (Madonna). Teal has also received Gold and Platinum albums for her work on Shanice and Third Eye Blind albums.


April Grisman (vocals) is a singer/songwriter with a powerful voice influenced by jazz, rock and R&B. A talented songwriter and has fronted and recorded with several notable bands in the San Francisco Bay Area. The energy April brings to music is truly electrifying. April has performed on stage with many well-known professional recording artists such as Randy Jackson, Irene Cara, Eric Martin and rock legends Y&T.


Miles Schon (guitar) is a talented musician and songwriter who hails from a rich background in rock-n-roll. He is very modest about his background, playing down the fact that his father is one of the great American guitarists (Neal Schon, a founding member of the legendary Journey). Citing Jeff Beck as his all time favorite, he grew up listening to Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Santana and Eric Clapton. Miles is a truly accomplished musician, and one certainly one of the top guitarists in California.


Denise Martin (drums): A band wouldn’t be complete without a super bad-ass drummer, and we couldn’t have asked for a better one than the talented Denise Martin. A child prodigy, she started playing drums at 14, not too long after that she was touring the world with Merl Saunders and The Eric Martin Band. Another one of the finest musicians in the area, Denise is endorsed by Paiste Cymbals, and they know certainly how to pick em’. Denise and Angeline lock in as the rhythm section for The Boombox.


Angeline Saris (bass): One minute of Angeline’s low-end thumping coming at you and you’ll know she is just as much beast as beauty. She is a monstrous talent and has the schedule to prove it. In the last year alone, Angeline recorded 2 albums and toured with Narada Michael Walden, rocked the stage with Santana and has dedicated time to many studio projects. Angeline is dynamic, accomplished and a wonderful fit for the other committed musicians of The Boombox.


Jonathan Korty (keyboards): Award-winning musician Jonathan Korty, son of Oscar and Emmy award-winning film director John Korty and designer Beulah Chang, could definitely be considered a product of his creative environment. The family lived in Stinson Beach when he was born in 1968 and soon moved to Mill Valley, where Jonathan and his brothers David and Gabriel rode bikes, skateboarded and explored the mountainside. In 1995, he formed the successful eight-piece groove band Vinyl which toured nationally and internationally, won countless awards and even appeared on Comedy Central’s South Park.
