From the website:
Susan Fessler has been playing guitar since she was 10 years old and, by the time she was in high school, was playing professionally. She was a founding member of “Olde Spice” in 1977. Susan toured throughout the United States and the Caribbean with the show band “RB and the Gang.” Since returning to Reading, she has continued to perform in local bands and theater. Susan currently spends her work days in the world of sales and marketing and does motivational speaking.
Craig Schollenberger began playing professionally and teaching guitar when he was 16 years old. His father, Saxie Schollenberger was a well-known band leader and teacher in the Reading area. Craig played guitar and electric bass in many local bands and went on to travel, full time, as a musician. He has backed up or played alongside such artists as Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Kool & the Gang and Jr. Walker & the All Stars, to name a few. Craig returned to music full time during the ’80’s, playing, teaching and doing stringed instrument repairs and custom building. He assembled and finished the guitar you see him playing in Get Real.
Ms. Fessler, a renowned performer, is a vocalist who also plays the guitar. Her style and flair has complemented the band’s live versions of such heartfelt standards as “I Want to Be in Love” by Melissa Etheridge, and “Love Has No Pride,” by Bonnie Raitt. With an innate passion for entertainment, and speaking to people in various ways, Ms. Fessler works with Mr. Schollenberger to convey countless messages in a language that everyone can enjoy—rock and roll.
The band will also be performing at the Bridge Inn Martini Bar on January 24, 2015 from 8-11pm.
