JB - Keys/Vocals:
JB smokes the keyboard and creates bad-ass vocal harmonies. Period. She is classically trained in music and performance and has been entertaining audiences for years with a big, bright smile and an infectious vibe. JB is versatile on the keys - providing a solid rhythmic backbone when needed and full-on, out-front solos in songs where piano is THE critical element.
RKali - Bass/Vocals:
RKali has been PLATINUM’s bassist since the band’s inception. He also provides harmonies and lead vocals on songs such as Rebel Yell and I Want You To Want Me. RKali’s contemporary bass sound and playing technique originate from key influences including Flea, Sting and Paul McCartney. His love of rhythm and providing a finger-picked foundation is only outweighed by his fearless desire to improve and be a source of constant energy and entertainment for PLATINUM’s fans - especially groupies.
