Dave Burton is an actor, folk singer, songwriter and storyteller from Mapleton, Utah. You may recognize Dave if you have seen shows at the Hale in Orem Utah or traveled to the Playmill in West Yellowstone Montana. Past favorite roles include Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, Chauvelin in the Scarlet Pimpernel and Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. He and his lovely wife Natalie run a small fabric and craft thrift store in Utah County where they are raising five adorable children.
Jake is a Utah guitar slinger by way of New Hampshire. Jake makes you wonder where his hands stop and the guitar starts. He was previously living in Utah grinding the local scene and teaching, until The Rhyolite Sound asked him to move to Las Vegas to join their band. This year alone they played the world famous Troubadour in Los Angeles, headlined a country music festival in France, and opened up for Willie Nelson for his Luck Ranch Reunion.
Isaac Ericksen and his bass have been traveling the country since he was 15 years old. He has shared the stage with many popular Americana and Blues artists all over the nation including KBA winning artist Tas Cru, Tony Holiday, and his Father, Dick Earl. Isaac recently accompanied his father at the 2023 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN where their band, Electric Witness, took 3rd place against hundreds of competitors. Also appearing many times as “Brother Jay” in the musical ‘Million Dollar Quartet,’ Ericksen has worked hard and paid his dues to hone his craft as a musician and entertainer.
Mari Solana Ericksen was born in New York, but grew up in Utah within a strong musical tradition.
