Al Jacquez recalls singing in the balcony with the church choir. School plays, talent shows and rock ‘n’ roll bands soon followed. He acted with Junior Light Opera in Ann Arbor, sang and played guitar at fraternity parties and teen clubs, and attended theater classes at the U of M. Then. . .

He is currently singing that Gospel Music with OneAchord, singing and playing guitar with Abbott, & Jacquez, and doing my solo thang quite often.
Best known for his emotive guitar riffs with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, Drew Abbott played lead guitar on seven albums, including Live Bullet. In 1981, he won a Grammy Award for his work on Against the Wind.
