Meet the Band
Katie Shorey (Stevie Nicks)
Katie is a recording artist, musician, and songwriter. Previously signed to Interscope Records, she's worked with Quincy Jones, Jimmy Iovine, Will Smith, and Robin Thicke, among many powerhouse talents. Influenced from an early age by the magic of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac, Katie was discovered by Twisted Gypsy for her Youtube covers. She's been called 'the new Stevie' with her modern take on a classic goddess. Katie will mesmerize and transform you with windblown hair, legendary tambourine skills, booty drops, and keytar slaying. www.katieshorey.com
Sean Patrick Bangert (Lindsey Buckingham)
Sean wishes he was alive in the 70s, except that he has anxiety over the idea of meeting his parents. What if he didn't like them? What if they didn't like him!?!?! In 1993 (or 1976), Sean climbed a mountain and turned around. True story. He likes learning new things, the show Three's Company, and carrot cake, and he's turned off by rude people and beans (all of them). Sean is not sponsored by Gibson Guitars or Fender Amps, nor is he sponsored by Dress Barn. A deal with Chest Hair Club for Men may, however, be in the works. The band thanks Sean for his sense of humor, a discounted rate on lawyering, and his abundance of sweaty, post-show hugs.
Alex Nester (Christine McVie)
From beating cancer at 16 years-old to recently sharing the stage with Carlos Santana as a guest artist, Alex Nester has always been a force to be reckoned with. Her unique blend of soul, funk, and r&b, coupled with her refusal to conform to the cookie-cutter industry standard, is infectious and invigorating. Though her voice will cut right through to your soul, she is far more than just a singer. She is an artist determined to push the boundaries of music making. Her third full-length studio album entitled “Someone Better” is due out summer 2019.
Milo Todesco (Mick Fleetwood)
Born and raised in Southern California, Milo took advantage of growing up near a metropolis. He attended concerts, classes, and clinics, and heard his favorite drummers while discovering new ones. His lifelong path of music has been vast. Cherished moments such as playing tympani behind the great Choral master Roger Wagner, grooving behind Delaney Bramlett, and jamming with Slash and Brad Paisley. He spent years traveling the world performing in Europe, South America, Australia, Canada, and the USA with punk rockers Down by Law and Zerodown. Recently, Milo recorded and toured with Foo Fighter guitarist Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants.
Tim Gilmer (John McVie)
Tim fell in love with playing bass by accident. And, he played in his first band with Billy Derian in STEEL WOLF - on purpose! Tim played all over the Sunset Strip during from the mid 80’s thru the mid 90’s. Bands such as Steel Wolf, Marcus, Cactus Groove, Dark Chapter, Idelwood, and was guitarist and lead vocalist in his own blues band, Timmy G and the Kenny’s. Tim is the fifth generation of performing artists in his family.
