RK3 - The Rummo & Koko Trio

 

 

Marc Britton aka Rummo (Vocals, Guitar, Saxophone)

Marc grew up in Pittsburgh with his brother Flip. He started at a young age on piano then picked up clarinet, soon playing clarinet trios with Flip and Dad for community functions. Eventually, Marc moved on to sax. His father had a Baritone ukulele and chord book always handy in the living room and at about the age of ten Marc started fooling around with the uke. A few years later, after starting his first group The Rav'ns, in which he was the sax player, Marc got his first guitar to "...have something to do in the songs that didn't have horn parts". That started the love affair with the instrument.

Marc attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania because of the 3:1 women-to-men ratio, but in spite of that, he eventually did graduate with a music degree. In the summers between semesters Flip and Marc still played together in summer bands. When Marc graduated he knew that he wanted to play music full time (possibly due to the lure of an even better women-to-men ratio - you know how guitar players are). He formed the band SYN that played in the greater tri-state area for many years. Flip joined about a year later. SYN was known for unique instrumentation and arrangements of popular top 40 rock tunes, progressive rock and originals. They had some local success in 1980 with a self-produced album called "Cast the First Stone".

When the group disbanded, Marc joined an all original band in the area called Picture This along with his long time friend John Knobler, and then was drafted along with brother Flip into the popular local band Witness. Marc left Witness in the mid-nineties and played in another local favorite band Egdon Heath (again with John) for a few years.

Marc lives in West Chester with Great Kate his awesome wife, roadie and ukulele player.

Along with Flip, he is also in "Trespass - The Music of Genesis" performing around the tri-state area and beyond playing music from the early Peter Gabriel era of Genesis. http://www.trespassmusic.com

 

 

John Knobler aka Koko (Vocals, Bass)

John Knobler hails from Norristown, PA.  Along with his brother Jim, John formed the rock band named Egdon Heath immediately out of high school that played around the tri-state area until just a few years ago.

John plays five-string acoustic and electric basses in RK3, shares lead vocals (especially the really high vocals) and adds humor when appropriate ... or not!

John is the proud papa to five (count 'm - 5) healthy and happy kids, ranging in ages from 16 to 36 years old! Gee, that makes him about...

He lives in East Norriton with his lovely wife Meg who just happens to be a gourmet chef (lucky man). It's a wonder that he manages to stay (semi) slim and trim.

John also plays in the "Jess Zimmerman Band"  - an original recording modern country band. For there schedule and more information please visit http://www.facebook.com/jesszimmermanband

Other than the information above, we're sorry to say that we have absolutely no information about this guy. Except that he's one heck of a musician!
