All Good People
All five members of All Good People are accomplished and active in the Philadelphia-area music scene, and take pride in performing at the high level of musicianship established by Yes, learning the songs “inside out, outside in!”
Bill Ridner (bass, vocals) and Josh Steingard (drums, vocals) studied their craft at The Berklee School of Music. Bill passionately powers Chris Squire’s timeless basslines with his custom 5-string Rickenbacker. Josh (who studied under Rod Morgenstein) provides the classic Bill Bruford pulse. Jimmy Faber (guitars) captures the varied and sometimes manic styles of Steve Howe. Brian O’Sullivan (keyboards, vocals) cites Geoff Downes, Rick Wakeman, and Keith Emerson among his influences. Lead vocalist Sammy Vile elicits an early-1970s Jon Anderson stage presence. Together, All Good People bring a musical experience that is greater than the sum of its parts!
