Ken has been playing drums since high school and even in dog years that's a long time! Ken has played extensively in the US and Europe and has performed with pros including the legendary Thom Beebe from Assassin. Ken also has several decades experience in writing music and a specialty in lyrics. He also plays in his studio band Arcanum with Jeff Yeager. Ken has been a motorcycle rider for several decades and has helped to make the band and its gigs rider friendly.

Bret is a master craftsman and stickler for making things right! Part of the reason Alter Ego has achieved such success is due to the driving force of Bret and his years of music experience. Bret has been involved in many pro music projects over the years and is extremely proud to be part of Alter Ego.

Jeff has been playing bass for over thirty years but music has played a big part all his life.  His influences on bass guitar come from a variety of music styles such as Nathan East, David Hungate of Toto, and Geddy Lee of Rush, among others.

An experienced member of bands that played rock, alternative, and progressive rock, Jeff also has extensive studio time where he writes, records, produces and plays original music. His latest studio group is Arcanum with Alter Ego drummer Ken.

We're thrilled to be San Diego's PREMIER Tribute hard rock dance-party-band and can't wait to make your event one to remember. We combine the best rockin' cover tunes, high energy performance, professional lighting and effects, and years of experience, to ensure your guests will have an incredible time. Tired of the same old "lounge" versions of great songs? We rock them up by taking advantage of additional instrumentation and multipart harmonies not found in other bands.  Get ready for a tribute of epic and popular songs that are unleashed and made for dancing!
