EVAN AND HIS GUITAR
Evan was born in New Jersey but grew up in Malvern, PA, right down the street from Mak. He is 19 years old and has been playing guitar since july, 1995.. In March 1998, he bought Crystal Planet after listening to "A Train of Angels" and "Up in the Sky" at a listening station in a local record store. Joe soon became a major influence on him and he got tickets with Mak to see Joe in concert at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia on November 14th, 1998. The concert blew his mind and he has been a hardcore Satch fan since. Evan plays a 2001 Ernie Ball/Music Man Albert Lee signature guitar and is currently attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, majoring in Contemporary Writing and Production.

Mak was born in Pennsylvania and has lived there all of his life. He is currently 18 years old and has been playing guitar since June, 1996. In June of 1998 he purchased Crystal Planet after hearing the song "Ceremony" on local radio. As time went on, he became more and more interested in Joe's music and in July, he learned that Joe was coming to Philadelphia November 14, 1998. Mak and Evan purchased tickets to the show in October and on 11/14, they went to the first of many unbelieveable Satriani shows. After going to this show, Mak realized what Joe had to offer other than Crystal Planet. In early December, he purchased Time Machine and has been a die-hard Satch fan ever since. Mak plays a 2001 Ernie Ball MusicMan Luke and is currently attending Tufts University in Boston, MA. Visit Mak's band's site, After The Fall.
