ANNE MARIE GADD
When it comes to singing, Anne Marie Gadd has an impressive repertoire of styles including Broadway, Classical, Jazz, Pop, and even Barbershop. Studying music and acting at KSU, she formed and led the first women’s barbershop quartet, and self produced her first album. When she’s not with The Liquor Talking, you might find her on stage with the Arena Fair theater troupe in Delaware, Ohio. You’ll forget all your troubles as this leading lady sweeps you away with her sultry sweet vibe and clear tones.
PAUL ANDREW WEISS
A band wouldn’t be complete without it’s powerhouse, and Paul Andrew Weiss will leave you wanting for nothing as he transforms any song into a toe-tapping journey of sound. This insanely talented Indiana University grad studied alongside the best, including Jim Beard of Steely Dan, and it shows! He formed The Liquor Talking in 2008 in NYC, and has collaborated with Anne and Suke to reform here in the great city of Columbus, Ohio.
SOTERO JUAN GEBARA (SUKE)
Every good band needs someone to ground them, and Suke holds it down in the best kind of way. A native from Bryan-College Station, Texas and a self-taught musician, he began playing drums professionally at age nine with his Dad’s Tejano group. He has played, recorded, toured and managed various types of groups including Tejano, Salsa, Country, Classic Rock, Oldies, Top 40, Pop, R&B, Funk, Jazz, Persian, and Contemporary Christian music, touring cross country at times. He is also an avid vocalist in Spanish and English, adding depth, excitement and interest to the sound of the group.
