The power trio Free Martini is the tiny version of Free Martin and is comprised of Dave Rees (guitar/vocals), Boyce Hartsell (drums) and Dave’s nephew Ryan Green (bass/vocals).
Recent venues the Free Martinis have played include the Coyote Bar & Grill, My Yard Live, Aztec Brewing and Tony’s in Oceanside harbor.
For a trio, the band packs a wallop, and puts its own unique twist on songs by groups like the Kinks, Squeeze, Grateful Dead, Social Distortion, Aerosmith, Eddie Cochran and Johnny Cash.
Free Martinis are a family band (Uncle, nephew and nephew’s childhood friend). Although the drummer and bass player are youthful (21 & 22) they are a powerful rhythm section (having grown up playing together) and play well beyond their years.
