Stan Kebel Jr., Jose Martinez, Terry Svolto & Carlos Sebastian Baca...making smoke-filled, harmonizing dual guitar rock & ballads with occasional forays into jazz & fusion...all for your musical listening pleasure !
I started the band, ANCIENT INFANT, in 1995 with Samantha Ardenfrend on Bass & Vocals and Manic Juan (who gave me a drumset & a trumpet). We did like 4 or 5 songs then Sam left the band. Juan went off to Rehab shortly after.
A year later, I met up with Samantha again at a TOBACCO ROAD (Miami,Florida) open-mic performance of her new band. We hit it off well and I was rehearsing with them at my studio. We revived some earlier co-written tunes and some new ones as well.
One of her singer/acoustic guitar players quit over musical differences and the other lead guitar player wasn't very commited at the time. Soon the band was streamlined to just Sam on bass & vocals, Terry Svolto on drums & myself on guitar & vocals. We played Rose's on SOBE (South Miami Beach) at least 4 times.
Then Sam left again (1996) & I have not seen her since (miss ya, Sammie). Terry & I recruited Carlos Baca on bass till we got Jose Martinez to play bass fulltime whereupon Carlos resumed with 2nd lead & rhythm guitar & background vocals. I took over main vocals & guitar.
We put out five albums: (1) #1 SON, ( 2) Red Headed Step-Child, (3) Shut Up & Play, (4) Seasons Of Life, & (5) Shakes Your Hand. Things were looking good, gigs etc... The Order of the Ancient Infant is currently on hiatus .
In Miami Beach we played Rose's & SouthBeach Pub. In Miami, we played Tobacco Road, Gables Pub, Churchill's & The Grind.
Beatles, Southern Rock all the way to jazz fusion.
