Natasha Nemergut has been the frontwoman of multiple rock groups over the span of fifteen years, performing both covers and original material. Graduating with a BA in Theater from UMass Amherst in 2011, she moved to New York to pursue a career in Rock and Roll. Throughout the span of her career she has recorded multiple albums, including an EP with Chinna Smith of Bob Marley and the Wailers and Soul Syndicate. She currently works at the best jazz club in the world and spends her off days working on her next album.

Graduating from the Collective in the Fall of 2015 at age 21, Colin began making music and performing regularly with his colleagues and as a freelancer at popular NYC venues such as Joe’s Pub, Bowery Electric, Nublu and Rockwood Music Hall. He has performed with jazz singer Kandace Springs at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and Newport Beach Jazz Festival.

In 2017 at age 22, Colin was chosen as the drummer for the 1st National Broadway tour of “On Your Feet,” along with the Miami Sound Machine. Colin will continue to tour the USA with the show until Spring of 2019, when he will return to NYC to continue making new music and performing with various artists.

Vinny Valentino is a Grammy-nominated guitarist and composer, continuing to redefine musical genres and break melody barriers to audiences worldwide. Blending the eternal elements of blues and jazz music since his international debut album (The Distance Between Two Lines), he is consciously expanding on the confines of his instrument and the compositions and recordings that stems from it. The Distance Between Two Lines also rocketed up the charts to number two and held its own on the national charts for fourteen weeks.

Vinny’s compositions have been recorded by Steve Smith and Vital Information, John Benitez, George Benson, Sunny Sumter and Steve Haas and are featured in the best-selling Jazz book, “All Jazz Real Book.” The National Endowment for the Arts and the Virginia Commission for the Arts have recognized Vinny’s talents as composer, arranger, and recording artist with a grant for a series of works entitled "New Music for Three Guitars".
