Band Biography
     The Unforgiven has been together since 2003 and consists of four core members, all local baby boomers.  The band has many years of professional experience among all the members.  The band performs an eclectic mix of classic rock music, country and blues in their own inimitable style. Their influences consist of such diverse artists as Muddy Waters, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buck Owens, Chuck Berry, Jr. Walker, The Eagles, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles.

    The bands' vast repertoire include such classics as "Sweet Home Alabama,"  "Stormy Monday," "Honey Don't," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Nadine," "Peaceful Easy Feelin'," and even a few Rolling Stones tunes, such as "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Under My Thumb." The band also performs a set of classic Beatles tunes.

    The Unforgiven is available as a full band with guitars, bass, percussion and drums, or in acoustic trio and duo formats, depending on the venue's requirements and budget. The band's personnel are all professional musicians who have many years of experience among them, both as band members and as solo performers.  We can also perform as a five piece blues band with a harmonica player.  We released 7 CD titles since 2008.  We sell them only at our gigs. More info coming soon!

     During the day, the band performs as The Good Times Show Band, entertaining seniors at senior centers, retirement facilities and nursing homes, tailoring our shows to our senior audiences.
