Michael Canausa – Lead /Rhythm Guitar and Backing Vocals
Michael began playing guitar and bass in his teens. Later, his love for the 6-strings was rekindled when he joined the classic rock band, ASYLUM ROAD. He then formed FIRST ROUND and has performed regularly over the past 6+ years. Michael’s style of guitar playing made it an easy decision to join REBEL SOULS. His classic rock roots, and diligence on dialing-in the right tone, enhances his amazing ability to capture the soulful blues rock riffs of Mick Ralphs and the raw sounds of Paul Kossoff.

David Blampied – Drums
David began playing drums at the age of 4, following the encouragement of his mother who decided even before he was born that he would be a drummer. As a very young drummer, David was exposed to a wide and eclectic range of influences from Lionel Hampton to Louie Bellson, Buddy Rich, and Joe Morello. Even going on to study with his influence and one of his drumming heroes Joe Morello. David has gone on to lend his percussion skills in several Led Zeppelin tributes as well the “Bridges to Quadrophenia” show while finding his niche as a versatile and dynamic rock drummer.

Dave Yarrington – Keyboards and Backing Vocals
Dave is an audiologist’s nightmare. In addition to playing with classic rock bands throughout the Hudson Valley, in his day job he teaches band and orchestra instruments to middle school kids. His autobiography will be titled “Noise and Hormones.” So do not be surprised if he does not hear you the first seventeen times you say something to him. Dave has been playing and singing harmonies, and the occasional lead vocal, with various local bands since 2005 or so.  He plays a Nord Stage EX76.

Andrew Strohman – Bass Guitar
Inspired by Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, John Paul Jones and Jack Bruce, Andrew picked up a bass guitar 35 years ago and has been playing ever since. Andrew has played in multiple New York-based cover and original projects including several years as the bassist for the Kristen Capolino Group. Andrew’s exploration of fretless bass tones led him to Boz Burrell and a deep appreciation for the unique, always moving bass lines which help give Bad Company’s songs an unmistakable groove. Andrew is super stoked to help recreate those grooves with REBEL SOULS.
