Formed in 2003, Unfinished Business specializes in the best and most popular music of all time: 1960s rock 'n' roll. Think Beatles, Rolling Stones, British Invasion, The Beach Boys, The Doors, and Chicago and that will give you an idea of some of the great music Unfinished Business performs at its shows. The band also performs a selection of iconic hits from the '50s and '70s by
artists that include Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steely Dan, and The Doobie Brothers. It's all high energy dance music and great ballads that make up each exciting Unfinished Business performance enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
The original members of Unfinished Business- David Hollister on drums, Jim Witt on bass and vocals, and Ed Miller on lead guitar and vocals- all played in different local bands in California during the '60s, but they eventually set their music careers aside to pursue "real jobs" and raise families. However, their passion for the music of their youth eventually brought them
together to take care of some "unfinished business", and that is picking up where they all left off many years ago by performing again that great music of the '60s. Rounding out the Unfinished Business lineup is Thomas "Toes" Cuffe on keyboards and Karen Witt providing background vocals.
Unfinished Business can provide a show made up of a general mix of songs in its repertoire, or the band can provide a special show for an event theme such as:
