Fast Lane

Fast Lane – May 12

Funk music is a music genre which originated in the 1960s when African-American musicians created a new style of music that combined R&B, soul and jazz. Rather than focusing on melody and harmony, funk features a rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums. Fast Lane loves to get in that groove, and loves to get people dancing. As their slogan says, “Take off your feet belt and dance to the rhythm and groove of Fast Lane!”

Fast Lane features Scott “Skyntyte” Free (lead vocals and lead guitar). Skyntyte’s credentials include tutelage under rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Bo Diddley and Parliament-Funkadelic keyboardist, Bernie Worrell. The list of artists he has shared the stage with includes Chic, Teddy Pendergrass, Stephanie Mills and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Vernon “Dr. Rockenstein” Montoya (keyboards) studied music theory at Boston College, and is an accomplished jazz pianist, playing in various musical combinations since childhood. Deby Starr is Fast Lane’s female vocalist. Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Starr has mastered many genres, including rock, blues, soul and jazz. She previously sang with several Gainesville bands, including Redeye, Fabulous Comatones, Crisis, ClassX and NdGO. Greg Mullins (bass) hails from Brooklyn, New York, and his musical background was steeped in funk. He has studied with bass great Marcus Miller, and has played with Carter Beauford (Dave Matthews Band) and Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck and the Flecktones). Keith Whitesel (drums, vocals) is originally from Texas, and previously performed with his family around the country, including at Disney World. His drumming is well-versed in funk, R&B, rock and jazz. He previously played with local bands GruvTherapy and NdGO. Adam Caerega (Saxophone) hails from Key West. He also plays saxophone with Little Mike and the Tornados
