THE PLAYERS
Jeff LaQuatra - Guitar and Backup Vocals 
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Jeff LaQuatra has been described as “a guitarist of enormous talent, both musically and technically” (Classical Guitar Magazine).  A renowned classical guitarist, Jeff was awarded first prize in the 1996 Oswald Rantucci Guitar Competition in Buffalo, New York.  He has earned degrees from The Cleveland Institute of Music (BM) and The University of Denver (MM) where he served as a graduate teaching assistant.  Currently, he is an adjunct professor of music at Colorado State University.
  Jeff has performed as a member of Colorado’s Mountain Chamber Music Society as well as with The Boulder Philharmonic and Central City Opera.  His 2003 solo guitar CD Twilight: Guitar Music at the End of the Century was released to critical acclaim and was recently included in Enrique Robichaud’s 2013 publication Guitar’s Top 100 – A Guide to Classical Guitar’s Most Recorded Music.
 Recently, Jeff has revisited the music of his youth, performing with Mr. Majestyk’s 8-Track Revival (and his cavalcade of all-stars). “This is the music that got me excited about playing the guitar in the first place.  It’s a thrill to play it with such stellar musicians and at maximum volume!”  
Robert "Goose" Guzman -​ Bass, Dissonance & Thunder
 Goose is a Denver native who has studied music though private lessons or on his own since his teens.  He started out as a six-string guitarist in the late 70s and all through the 80’s.  Because of his love for the Bass guitar, groove, pocket and space, Goose began dabbling with bass in the late 80’s and finally gravitated to mainly Bass in the 90’s. Goose has played in Rock, Funk and New Wave bands in the 70s and 80’s.
Since the turn of the century Goose has played for The Start Ups, Jeffrey Harrison, Hero to Zero, King for a Day, The Bonnie Situation, The Mighty 18 Wheeler, Pop Star Homicide and Van Who’Len. Having played so many styles of music through the years, Goose finally decided to go back to the initial music that inspired him to play music in the first place, and that is the 70s Rock and Pop. As the Bass Player for Mr. Majestyk’s 8-Track Revival, Goose plays intense, groove driven Rock and Pop and plays with some of the best musicians in the scene.  Goose’s motto… “You can never have to many bass cabinets on stage and you can never be too loud.”
Madison Lucas -​ Drums and Sound Effects

Madman took to the drums early in grade school, got his first kit soon after, and has been in the pocket ever since.   From the start Madison never limited himself to just one musical style.  He was lucky to have some great teachers in his youth, and in adulthood he studied with some of Denver’s best, including Mike Marlier and Scott Davies. 
Madison has remained an active drumming force in Denver.  Through the 90s this well-rounded drummer’s involvement was more jazz-based; moving later to into many styles of rock with numerous projects over the years.
Besides the tour-de-force that is MM8TR, Madison is a member of the Denver indy-rock band SOFT SKULLS.  Previously Madison played for several years with his lovely guitarist wife Robin Lucas in the original progressive rock band Fever Dream (formerly Soma).  Prior to that came things like Thee Lovely Lads, Commerce City Rollers, and Hell Camino; wherein Madison first extensively integrated electronic and acoustic drums into his music.
Brand New for 2017 Madison is obsessed with his beautiful DW Collectors Maple drum kit in Peacock Oyster finish.  He proudly enjoys a limited local artist Sabian Cymbal endorsement thanks to the legendary Bob Rupp.
