Find out more about each member.

Fred Westbrook, Keyboards & Vocalist

Fred Westbrook is a retired teacher and principal, who has been a musician all of his life, and has been performing professionally since he was 18 – which was a long, long time ago. Fred has been part of ensembles as diverse as the Susquehanna University (www.susqu.edu) band and choir during a concert tour of Europe and as a vocalist and the keyboard player for Big Rick & the Bombers as they competed in the International Blues Competition in Memphis, twice. He’s had the privilege of appearing on the stage of B.B. King’s on Beale Street three times, and has played the Bull Durham Blues Festival in Durham, NC twice. He was also part of a band opening for Herbie Mann at the Pleasure Island Blues and Seafood Festival.And now, he’s delighted to be a part of The Sidemen as keyboard player and vocalist.

Bill Bryan, Guitarist

Bill Bryan is a long-time area guitarist who coaxes tasty tuneage out of electric and acoustic guitars, Bill plays an eclectic combinations of down-home Americana to tear-stained blues with wayward danger-ridden detours in between. With a nod to the Dead, Commander Cody, The Allmans, Little Feat and the Kings, (BB, Albert & Freddie), Bill pays homage to his many influences in his playing. More recent projects include Good Juju with fellow bandmates Ed Mezynski and Rob Lindberg and the BNG Telecaster Master shows.

Rob Lindberg, Bass Player, Songwriter

Rob Lindberg is a bassist and novice songwriter who plays electric, fretless electric and acoustic (upright) bass. Rob has played in wide variety of settings ranging from hotel lounges with jazz trios, ballrooms with big bands, pit bands for “way-off Broadway” shows, recording studios, local blues and rock & roll bars, and chicken-wire covered country stages. In addition to the neighborhood garages of his youth, his musical training includes a degree in Jazz Performance from Bellarmine College, participation in Jamey Aebersold’s Jazz clinics, and studying with Rufus Reid, a preeminent jazz bassist. His scattered range of bass and songwriting influences reflects his strong ADD tendencies and includes fusion (Weather Report, Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius), Ray Brown, Scott LaFaro, Tony Levin, finger-funk (James Jamerson, Rocco Prestia), Americana (Band, Dave Matthews, Paul Simon) and ProgRock (Genesis), with a dose of melodic PowerPop (Raspberries, Badfinger, Beatles, Brian Wilson) thrown in as a guilty pleasure.

Ed Mezynski, Drummer

Ed Mezynski has had the pleasure of drumming for Will McFarlane, Cool John Ferguson and John D Holman. Influenced by everything from bluegrass to jazz, he’s been blessed to have played in The Lacey Band, Joe Bell and the Stinging Blades, Valentino and the Piedmont Sheiks (with a trip to Memphis for the IBC), Big Rick and the Bombers, Good Juju, The Tornado Blues Band and a host of great local blues jam host bands.

Live Radio Show Recording Thursday Nights at the Roadhouse

When Greg Lewis and Maria Parker Lewis took the challenge and stepped up to bring a community restaurant and event space back where the General Store Cafe once stood, we were all hopeful that this would mean many very good things for Pittsboro, Chatham County and the Triangle Area.

But who would have predicted that we would be the site for a new – likely never done before – Americana Radio Show – recording live-to-disc, with the internationally touring Americana recording artist Chapel Hill’s own TOKYO ROSENTHAL!

With five CDs to his credit, and top ten placing songs on international Americana lists, awards and honors, this singer songwriter impressed us all the first time he performed on the Roadhouse stage.
