Drummer Nick Blanchard, of Lafayette, has shared the stage with Jamil Sharif, Steve Masakowski, Don Vappie, Johnny Vidacovich, and Oscar Rossignoli. Philip Vincent, 30, teaches bass at the School of Rock and is a church musician. Trombonist Ben Herrick of Cleveland, Ohio, is Ph.D. candidate in music education at LSU. Gary Stewart is the principal tuba player in the Baton Rouge Concert Band. David Randall plays banjo but also fills in on guitar and string bass if necessary. Randall is the host of WHYR’s Sunday Songwriter Showcase. He has played with too many rock groups to mention. Others who have performed with the FSB are the 92-year-old John Dupaquier, Doug Stone, Terry Byars, John Bishop, Chris Bellau, Betsy Braud, Brian Breen, and Zachary Farris-Bourque.


Charter members of the band live off Florida Street, hence the Florida Street Blowhards name.
