MEET THE SPACEHEATERS!
Tom Zack (rhythm, lead guitar, lead & background vocals-Hampstead, NH) has been a music aficionado for over 50 years, going back to his earliest memories of playing the Brit Pop strains of Henry the 8th by Herman's Hermits with vigor on a plastic guitar through learning to play acoustic Neil Young on a "real" guitar in the 70’s to jamming with Grateful Dead cover bands in the 80's and 90's all the way to the present mix of the SpaceHeaters who are able to capture musical tastes and elements from each band member and blend them into an eclectic rock and roll stew. Tom grew up in the backyard of Arlo Guthrie in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts where he spent his teen years studying the music greats at Tanglewood and the Music Inn while also trekking to over 200 Grateful Dead shows throughout the Northeast.
Dr. Herbert Snow (electric & fretless bass-Newburyport, MA) is an expert in Groove Theory and String Dynamics. He holds down the low end on 5-string and fretless basses, and his favorite musicians include Herbie Hancock, Little Feat, and The Captain & Tennille. When not playing with the SpaceHeaters he is one half of the World's Tallest Rhythm Section.
Paul Reynolds (keyboards –Amesbury, MA) got the music bug playing trumpet in 5th grade and moving through various performing groups throughout middle/ high school and college. After moving over to keyboards Paul has played with numerous groups in Western MA, Pittsburgh, PA and Essex County ranging from 70’s Disco (Cold Duck) to Glamour Rock (Topaz) to Original Folk (Salad Days) to jam band (Buffleheads, Ashcat) and now dance/rock & roll in The Space Heaters. Early musical influences include Maynard Ferguson, Frank Zappa and Arthur Ellis. Paul has also played Las Vegas and Nashville … in a pickup band (InStar AllStars).
Carole Stockwell (lead, background vocals- Georgetown, MA) : Carole has been singing since she was a little girl, (mostly in her basement while on roller skates) continuing on to sing and solo for her school choirs. After moving to Boston in the 70’s, Carole attended the Berklee School of Music for a short time, met many different people in the music business and joined up with a “show band”, traveling around the country singing in clubs and hotels in New Orleans, Boston, Miami, etc. Carole has served as lead and background vocalist for all sorts of bands: jazz, rock, soul, and rhythm & blues. Carole has a soulful, romantically-tinged CD out, Pieces of My Heart, produced and mixed by husband and SpaceHeaters drummer, Neal Stockwell.
Bobby (Bobrock) Singer (lead, slide, rhythm guitar, cello, vocals-Weymouth, MA) began his musical career early, playing cello after a brief stint with the piano (unfortunately he was overly-obsessed with the black keys while playing in the key of C). Bobby continued on with the instrument, studying with Dorothy Fidlar (YES, that’s not a nickname) at The Hartt School of Music for 10 years, playing in his high school orchestra and national award winning jazz band, as well as the All-Connecticut and All-Eastern High School Orchestras. After taking on the guitar in high school, Bobby played many acoustic gigs while attending Boston College with outstanding musicians, particularly flutist Marianne Sneikos, on the Chestnut Hill/Newton/Brookline local coffee house and bar circuit while continuing cello study with Boston Symphony cellist, Mischa Neiland. After being involved in the San Francisco/Berkeley music scene for four years, Bobby returned back east, playing with the Volunteers, a Long Island cover band. Bobby played through much of the 90’s in the Boston area as lead guitarist for the renowned South Shore band, Organic Panic, followed by a stint with Boston’s Fate McCabre. Bobby has also intermittently guested with the impeccable Boston funk band, Downtime. In the studio, Bobby has recently contributed to the Autumn Hollow Band’s CD, “Random Notes”, and Carole Stockwell’s, “Pieces of My Heart”.
