From a very young age, Janie knew she had to make music, and as a way to rebel against parents who wanted her to take piano lessons, she began hitting the drum set. Influenced by such jazz greats as Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa, rock legend Keith Moon, as well as her own uncle, Janie made it a point during her education to become as multifaceted as possible with technique and style as well as dedicated to learning classical music theory. Janie began playing out with groups in the early 80’s and has performed with too many to name. She has been featured in many articles spotlighting female drummers and has played venues all over New England. As well as being a founding member of Just Like That, Janie was the founding member of Green Dame and the Chickz, an entirely female rock group.

After college, Chuck ventured into the wedding band business and had huge success for fifteen years with his six piece wedding band “CHARISMA” performing at weddings and special events at five star hotels throughout New England.
When asked about his musical journey so far Chuck replied “I really have no clue as to the exact number of gigs I’ve played over the years but it’s certainly in the thousands and most of them have been great fun. Now that I live on Cape Cod, I’m enjoying playing at local pop/rock dance clubs. Playing keyboards with ‘Just Like That’ is great both on and off stage. It couldn’t be any better.”
