Christy Fisher

Christy Fisher

Christy Fisher

 

Singer/songwriter/ukulele player/seamstress for the band
Christy started her “musical career” at the age of 15, working cleanup for
iconic fashion designer Michael Braun (Sonny and Cher, Prince) and sewing
for legendary musicians and bands such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and
Frank Zappa. “I was a rebel poet, a hippie, and a kid who stole her brother’s
guitar, learned 3 chords and drove my piano teacher crazy banging out
Beatles instead of Beethoven. Here I was hanging around with musicians
after school and getting into clubs underage because it was part of my
“sewing job”…. it was bound to happen. My boyfriend’s band needed a
backup singer, their manager heard me.. and the next thing I knew I was in
a recording studio and signing a contract with Decca…. It was then I found
out about the “industry part of the music business” as they tried to turn me
into a slick little package … long story short: I wouldn’t wear the dress. They
voided the contract…and this rebel was once again free.”
A “lyricist with a soundtrack”, Christy’s musical style is influenced by various
genres: old school R&B, pop bands from the 60s and 70s, and folk.
Christy went on to playing in various rock bands in Florida and Colorado all
while building her own jewelry and clothing design business. She moved to
Jerome in 1990. Always a strong supporter of the arts, she concentrated on
her wearable arts and put her music on the back burner, while continuing
to write songs for “sanity’s sake”.
Then…around Christmas 2014…she was given a ukulele…and
….everything….changed.
She is now a part of The Jerome Ukulele Orchestra, lead singer for the band
Mountain Stranded Time……..and still creates jewelry and clothing for
everyday rockstars.

Luke Jarrett has been playing the harp for some 30 years, and it’s truly his second love.

Over the years he has performed with many popular regional bands from Newport, RIto Monterey, CA, & Orange County California to Western Colorado. While residing in Southern California, he was often heard playing with opening acts at The Crazy HorseSaloon in Santa Ana, CA which was voted the ”CMA Nightclub of he Year” for several years, as well as the famous Palomino nightclub in No. Hollywood. He has also played a host of club and concert venuesup and down the west coast.

While living in Colorado he was a member of Ralph Dinosaur & The Fabulous Volcanoes, a very popular band performing in the resort towns of Telluride, Aspen, Steamboat and Durango, CO. Over the years, his popularity among professional musicians has resulted in his often being asked to take part in opening act performances for national acts such as John Mayall, J.J. Cale, Waylon Jennings, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bobby Bare, Ed Bruce and Rick Nelson. His past experience playing with country rock, rock & roll, reggae and blues bands, has honed his ability and reputation as a fine multi-genre harp player. One of Luke’s musical influences is Lee Oskar whom he recently had the pleasure of playing with at the Spirit Room in Jerome.

He can now be heard whaling away with Llory McDonald and Combo Deluxe, a band that has the well-deserved reputation as “the hottest band in Arizona.” Luke can also be heard on their CD “Haunted”. Besides playing music, Luke loves to remodel homes, being in Rocky Point, Mexico whenever possible, and sharing a good laugh whenever possible, something that comes easy when sitting in with Llory and the boys.
