The Alliance - Medieval Themed Rock Band

Welcome to The Alliance

My name is James, I play lead guitar and perform lead vocals. On stage I am known as “King James, the Lion Hearted”.  I got my first guitar at age 10. At age 14, I joined my first band, and too many to count after that. Then in 1990, the very first rendition of "The Alliance" was born. We started in San Diego California where we put out our first CD.  After several years and several performances in California, I went to Japan for three years which was an interesting playing experience to say the least.  The Japanese rock out.  From there I headed down south to the gulf coast for a few years to play for the great southern folks there.  Finally, I moved to the great Northwest where I reside today.  Over the years, I pondered... how could I expand my musical vision?  

I decided to create an original project developed from just the band playing music, and morph it into something more creative, meaningful, and exciting.  So, I wrote the full blown theatrical production of "Writing on The Wall".  I took my ongoing childhood love for European castles, knights, swordsmanship, courage and chivalry, and allowed the creative juices to flow.  The concept of a medieval castle stage setting with members in full knight attire and a powerful driving Renaissance Rock Rendition was born. I hope you enjoy all aspects of The Alliance production....

My name is Coleen and I play keyboards for The Alliance. 

My love of music began at a young age. I was strongly influenced by my father who was an accomplished musician. I enjoy a wide variety of music from Celtic to classical, jazz, and rock. I began playing keyboards with The Alliance in Japan in 2012 during which the song "Writing On The Wall" was created. 

The costumes and the sets have been an artistic expression of mine. I love that our band has a unique presentation with a positive message. Its creativity and energy are contagious. I consider it a blessing to be part of this production.

My name is Michael. I play rhythm and lead guitar for The Alliance. 

On stage, I'm known as "Sir Michael the Bold". Playing 6 and 12 string guitar has been a passion of mine for over 35 years. I love to play music, and my performance makes this most evident. Like James, I've played in several cover and original bands over the years. I really like the positive message of The Alliance, all the band members, and the rocking music as well.

My name is Bryan and I play piano and keyboards. 

I began performing and composing music at the age of 7. I have devoted my life to music ever since and come from a long line of entertainers. My Grandfather played piano for Bing Crosby and his Father, Ron Lloyd has been a well-known performer for nearly 50 years. Since 1984, I have toured the U.S. as a "Hired Gun" for many Bands and Artists, and have been a Solo Performer in Night Clubs / special events. I am thrilled to be a part of The Alliance!

My name is Seth and I am the bass player for The Alliance. 

On stage, I'm known as 'Sir Seth the Sentinel'. I gaze at the landscape with a sharp eye and alert my brethren if I sense danger afoot. As a musician, I love to 'play with sound' and find myself tinkering with whatever music toys I can find. I believe music to be one of the most trans formative and healing forces on the planet. I am honored to be in a band with musicians that respect and love it like I do.

My name is Josh. As the drummer for The Alliance, I am known as the "Hotspur" (Henry hotspur Percy). 

Some of my earliest childhood memories are music. I remember listening to Mitch Rider and Ginger Baker playing the drums and couldn't wait to get my first drum set. Now a days, I love to listen to the Foo Fighters and Tommy Aldridge. This progressive style of music lends itself to my style of play. The positive message in the lyrics gives glory to the one who gave me the talent. I will be an armor bearer to my fellow brethren in the band.
