Chad Preston - Drums & percussion
I have been a percussionist for 40 years, playing kits of all sizes. I’ve played rhythms from the world of jazz to rock and everything in between. I am influenced by the likes of Gene Krupa and Stewart Copeland. I live inside the beat. My first drum kit was pots and pans until my parents bought me a three-piece kit. My father would only play jazz on the stereo so I had to listen closely to the complex beats and time signatures. I’ve played with many different musicians and styles ever since high school. I am proud to have been given these talents to add to the sounds of the Steve Wentworth Band.
JD Doyle - Guest Artist

I grew up in a very musical family. My father played fiddle, my mother sang and my brother and sisters played various instruments and sang. I’ve played guitar or bass in several bluegrass, country, blues and rock bands over the years including Chelsea High School Marching Band (drums), Sky Band, Kelly Clarke Band, Blazin’, One Eye Open, Hartt Hollow, and Steve Wentworth Band.
Jimmy Goodwin - Guest Artist
LEAD GUITAR ON GOOD AND BAD ALBUM
I am a well-seasoned Vermont blues musician who has been playing since my early teens. I have played with local blues bands as lead guitarist even at a young age. I have played throughout New England and the east coast and have found many bands in Florida to play with. My genre is basically blues though reggae and rock are easily improvised.
