SEAN MANUEL

SEAN IS BREAKTIME'S SOUL. HE IS THE FOUNDER, LEADER, HEAD SONGWRITER, AND MUSICAL DIRECTOR HOLDING THE LOWS DOWN ON BASS GUITAR. IF AN ORIGINAL SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS TAKEN FROM THE 60s, IT'S HIS FAULT!

THOMMY DELANEY

THOMMY IS THE QUIET CHARMER. HE DOESN'T HAVE MUCH TO SAY; BUT, "TAM TAM" PERFORMS A NOTEWORTHY LEAD GUITAR AND PENS TUNES REMINISCENT OF THE 70s SINGER-SONGWRITERS.

PATRICK GRAHAM MELLOR

NO, THAT IS NOT PETER FRAMPTON IN THE PICTURE ABOVE. PATRICK AND HIS TRUSTY FENDER TELECASTER BRING A HEALTHY SERVING OF THE BLUES TO BREAKTIME'S PRODUCT.  HIS VOCAL STYLE IS AN EXPLOSIVE COMBINATION OF MICK JAGGER'S SWAGGER AND JIM MORRISON'S GRIT.

ZACH RUZZA

ZACH RUZZA MAKES IT A PARTY WHENEVER HE IS ONSTAGE. A YOUNG DRUMMING PHENOM, RUZZA GUARANTEES YOUR HEART WILL THUMP FROM THE SHEER FORCE HE ATTACKS THE INSTRUMENT WITH.
