ROY BLUMENFELD: Roy founded The Blues Project in 1965, with Al Kooper (who that year played on Bob Dylanís "Like a Rolling Stone"). After appearing at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, Roy formed Seatrain. Roy then worked with Grateful Deadís Robert Hunter before founding San Francisco Nights - original members of The Steve Miller Band, Big Brother & the Holding Company, and Country Joe and The Fish. They folded in 2014 after Big Brother & the Holding Company's Sam Andrew died.
STEVE BROWNING (bass) joined UK 60ís legends The Pretty Things in the Ď80ís. He also played with Ronnie Spector (The Ronettes), David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) and in bands with Brendan OíNeill (Rory Gallagher), Dave Mattacks (Fairport Convention), Robin Goodridge (Bush), and Nigel Glockler (Saxon). He played on U.K tours for the Californian band its A Beautiful Day, including the 2011 Isle Of Wight Festival.

BARRY "THE FISH" MELTON is acknowledged one of the world's all-time great psychedelic blues guitarists. In 1965, together with "Country Joe" McDonald, he co-founded Country Joe and the Fish -initially as a duo - thus beginning his career as a guitarist and singer, recording and touring with Joe. However, soon the duo became a full band, and Country Joe and the Fish released the astonishing debut album "Electric Music for the Mind and Body" in 1967.

Barry appeared on all the Country Joe and The Fish recordings and he also wrote many of the songs that the band recorded. Country Joe and The Fish appeared at the Monterey Pop Festival (1967) and Woodstock Festival (1969) and are featured in the films made about the festivals. Barry also appears with Country Joe and the Fish in the neo-Western film, "Zachariah", and other films in which appear. He also wrote the soundtrack for the Roger Corman classic, "GAS-S-S", and also appeared in "The Omega Man" (1971) and "More American Graffiti" (1979).

Barry was a founding member of The Dinosaurs, a San Francisco super group of 60s veterans which at various times also included Peter Albin and David Getz (Big Brother and the Holding Company), John Cipollina and Greg Elmore (Quicksilver Messenger Service), Papa John Creech (Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship), Spencer Dryden (Jefferson Airplane and New Riders of the Purple Sage), Robert Hunter (lyricist and sometime performer for The Grateful Dead ), Jerry Miller (Moby Grape), and David LaFlamme (It's a Beautiful Day).
Barry toured the U.K with Itís a Beautiful Day on their U.K comeback tour of 2010, and has toured the U.K many times since to great acclaim.
