This tight-knit “family” of talented players has performed over 2000 concerts all over the country since 1992. The only act of their kind touting complete electric AND acoustic sets, their high-energy presentation is a tribute to the attitude, character, heart and soul of Rock & Roll Music.

Under the Influence is made up of 7 of the most phenomenal entertainers from the Midwest. Charles Stone (drums) and Glenn Poirier (Bass) provide a thunderous rhythmic undercurrent completed by the stunning double-guitar work of guitarists Keven Schneider and Jason Riley.
