Jonathan "Toots" Link
Jonathan found his love of music starting in 5th grade and knew starting middle school that he wanted to play saxophone. No one else in his family had been musically inclined. He continued learning, practicing, and playing at every opportunity all through high school, winning several awards in his journey. Jonathan has performed with many local bands on a professional level for all occasions and eventually met Cory at an open jam one night several years ago. Jonathan had been looking for a band home and found it in Cory Luetjen and The Traveling Blues Band
Deon McNeill was raised in church, which is where he became interested in the drums. He would sit next to his father along with guest drummers and watch them play during services. While in college he focused on basketball, but when different circumstances came about, music started calling his name. Returning to his interest in the drums, his passion for playing grew. He began playing with local acts, bands, and churches, eventually meeting Cory Luetjen and began gigging. Things really began to take off musically and the story goes on....
