Crystal JaVell Martin known as Madam Go-Long, and Crystal M.E.T.H.( Music's Evolution Through Herstory) is an African American female drummer who serves as the drummer for RnB Funk band the SOS Band. She has also performed as a drummer for Ciara, T.I., B Chase Williams, Joi, Dope Boy Ra, Lyfe Jennings, Mo'nique, BET and many more. She also is a collaborator with hip hop, gospel, pop, jazz, and rock artists, also the leader and front man of her own band Thunder Snatch. 

Dywane Thomas, Jr.  also known as MonoNeon, is an American bassist and experimental musician and native of Memphis, Tennessee. He is known for his presence on YouTube playing bass guitar and known for being one of the last people to work with Prince. Thomas is a Grammy Award-winning artist, for his participation on the 2020 NAS studio album King's Disease.

While Thomas is right-handed, he plays left-handed upside down on a right-handed bass guitar, which allows him to use heavy string bending on the upper strings. Thomas' slapping style/technique is unique because he is executing everything upside-down, but he still uses the thumb for slaps and fingers for pops. He also uses fingers and palm muting to create a warm, muffled timbre and have a little more control over the length of notes. In a free/improvisational setting, listeners may hear the use of Indian melodic inflections/embellishments in his playing, including the use of gamakas. Another attribute in Thomas' playing style is the use of randomness and personal mistakes in performance, eventually moving the mistakes from meaningless to meaningful. Thomas' overall playing style on bass can be described as "funky with unusual characteristics". Even musicians like Marcus Miller have noticed his playing style. His musical background is heavily influenced by southern soul, blues and funk. In a Bass Player magazine interview, Miller mentioned Thomas as one of several "young bad cats" he has met on the scene.

Important Safety Notice: In accordance with the Multnomah County mask mandate, all Jack London customers and staff, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear masks when not eating or drinking. As a further measure, no customers will be admitted without proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or proof of negative test taken within 48 hours of admission. Stay safe, Portland!
