Grateful Living in the Shadows
Oyster Club is composed of 2 of the 3 original members from the band Home Planet, Steve Tarnoff: Singer/songwriter and guitarist, and Mike Roux: drummer and backup vocalists. Former Home Planet bass player Mark Whitten is in another band at this time. (Home Planet has not been together since the end of the last millennium). Joining "Oyster Club" provisionally on the recordings has been Martin Tarnoff a.k.a. Suiauthon Lhûgrancion and a few other 'nom de plumes' (son of band leader Steve Tarnoff) playing bass and added some younger blood to the band. Taylor McEneaney is their new bass player since Martin left the band. Less recently than Taylor, Shuli Rayberg was added on woodwinds (bassoon/flute). The band plays 60's and 80's influenced rock with a philosophy that rock music is essentially plugged-in folk music. Oyster Club continues to perform Home Planet music (which can be purchased on CD baby.com and other internet outlets) and has composed more tunes now released on the CD, 'Grateful Living In The Shadows'. The CD is a three act program touching on various aspects of the human condition. In short, world/global conditions, relationships, spirituality and death. At present we are working on more material and experimenting with new musicians, instruments, and styles. The seeds of inspiration for the next future CD are being sown.
