Stacey Rago – Vocals/Keys
Stacey has been performing since she was 14 in groups of various shapes, sizes and musical styles, everything from choral music to church soloist to Tastes Like Chicken. She loves classic rock and blues-y stuff, but don’t challenge her knowledge of classical music, musical theater, or modern day hits! When not making music, she is working for a nonprofit and worrying about both her two- and four- legged children.
Brother Al – Vocals/Harmonica/Keys
Brother Al started singing in grocery stores for candy before he turned one year old. Over the years he entertained many people on car rides and at parties by singing along to tunes on the radio. He was sometimes overheard putting his kids to sleep with Jimmy Buffett tunes. But Brother Al didn’t do much in the way of singing in public until he was much older. Thanks to The Danny and Doctor Wippit, Brother Al can be heard singing and playing harmonica with Tastes Like Chicken. Now it’s tough to get him to stop. Always looking for the fun and coming up with a lyric to fit the moment, Brother Al abides.
