EXTRA BAND MEMBERS

 

 Joe Eiffert:

 Vocals/Lead Guitar & Keyboards

For the last five years "The Working Poets have always been a trio... but recently, especially at the bigger shows, You might see this guy playing the guitar and keyboards on the left side of the stage! Joe fills in from time to time and is one of the most accomplished and incredible musicians that you will ever hear play! Joe was born in California, but as he puts it..."I have roots that run deep in the great state of Louisiana". He's a New Orleans Saints fan, who truly without a doubt loves his family, life, sports, politics, and of course music. If you think you have seen Joe playing somewhere else before... your right! For the last 20 years Joe has been, and still is the Lead Guitar player in the popular Country & Southern Rock Band "Southern Spirit". If you wanna know more about Joe just ask him. He says it's the best way to get straight to the point of what you want or need to know.

  Tom Barnett:

Guitar /Synth Guitar /Six String Bass

Probably one of the nicest and most sought after musicians in California Tom Barnett is the man when it comes to learning how to play correctly!  Tom teaches guitar to many aspiring guitar players, when he is not playing on the stage himself!  Tom reads music like its his second language, and is best known for playing the six string bass in ZZAJ. "Yes, that is Jazz spelled backwards", one of Californias most popular Contempory Jazz Fusions Bands.
What does Tom do when he's not on stage playing music or teaching guitar classes? Why he is flying an airplane of course! Tom loves to fly and that is just one of the many other things that he loves to do. We are lucky to have Tom playing with The Working Poets and the band usually walks around scratching their heads as to why, or how he has time to play with us.
