Ken Jones

Ken has been playing Classic Rock before it was Classic Rock. Ken played in bands in the 70’s and 80’s and started up again in the late 2000s with a neighborhood project called Manhattan West. After 4 years, Ken decided to go another route and start a project with female singers and keys.

Ken's guitar arsenal consists of a classic 1979 Black silver-burst Les Paul, an even older 1970 Stratocaster, a Paul Allender PRS, a Washburn, a Flying V, and an Ovation electric/acoustic. He prefers to play through his Marshall stack cabinet, but now uses a 5 watt Blackstar tube cab along with a 150 watt pre-amp thru a line 6 rack mounted amp modeler to power up the Marshall speakers. Ken LOVES going wireless with his Shure pack for his rigs. Ken enjoys classic rock and older music, but now is being exposed to newer music and is enjoying and playing it as well. As the oldest member of this band, playing the newer music is a big step, but one that Ken is enjoying. You’re never too old to rock.

Danny Szeliga, Jr.

Danny originally wanted to be a drummer, but realized guitar was the way to go. He started playing at the age of thirteen, and has never left it. Dan played guitar in a classic rock band in the mid-80s and bass in an alternative rock band in the early 90s. He also spent a good majority of that time recording original material on a 4-track recorder, but he missed playing in a group the past 17 years; there's nothing like being a part of a band. Danny enjoys a wide range of music, but his primary influences are the Beatles and the Who. Danny is currently playing a Fender Precision bass through a Peavey Combo 300 and a Korg SP-250.

Kathy Szeliga

Kathy started singing in rock bands at the age of 18 with her best friend, husband, and III Day Weekend's bass player. She has been singing on and off stage most of her life involving many different genres from theatre, choirs, bands, etc. Music has always been an important part of her life. Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of our soul and when she is not surrounded by it, it leaves a void. As a founding member of III Day Weekend, Kathy feels privileged to be playing with such talented people and looks forward to seeing her band mates at practice. "The music we play washes the dust of every day life from my soul," Kathy says. "I have never known a musician who regretted being one. Whatever deceptions life may have in store for you, music itself is not going to let you down." Friedrich Nietzsche said, “Without music, life would be an error.”
