While growingup, Lance first learned music by playing his grandmother's tenor saxophone and plunking around on his father's Ventura acoustic guitar. Until one sunny Hawaiin day in 1997 he was presented a choice...buy new wheels for his car or buy a bass guitar and amp. He chose the latter and never looked back.
"I have played in progressive rock, church, and cover bands while I gigged in California and Baltimore. Bottom line is-groove and soul move me...I find those in all genres of music. I try to bring that musical diversity to Signal 13.

Chris grew up in Philadelphia and was influenced by rock and roll music from the late 70's through the late 80's. As a boy, Chris was given a Honda electric guitar and an amp by his Mom and grandmother...and he began to rock! While he plays lots of musical styles, he most enjoys the heavy rock he grew up with. Chris was formerly the rhythm guitarist for Hi-Velocity and has shared the stage with many talented musicians!
Signal 13 was formed to support and honor those who serve in law enforcement, fire, first responders/emergency medical services, K-9's, and the members of our military. We all have direct ties to these communities and we would like to support them in our own unique way. We also want to play and share the music we love--high energy rock! We know there are many of us out there who grew up with and love this music and we are bringing it to them with both covers and originals!
