Jeff Porter - Vocals, Guitars Jeff's mother give him his first guitar and taught him the basic chords at age 7.
Finding it a way to work through the challenges life brought him, he developed a passion for the early classics and was whippin' out Jimi Hendrix licks in no time. As the 1980s SoCal punk scene unfolded, Jeff found himself in some of the best known punk bands of the time including China White, The Glory Holes, The Cause to name a few. Jeff continues to translate his ongoing assessment of life through his music in Mama Hagglin. His hard driving guitar leads and forceful rhythms keep the energy buzzing deep into the crowd. Jerry Adamowicz - Bass, Vocals Jerry has been playing bass since his youth and never stopped playing since.
He also plays guitar & mandolin. Growing up listening to classic artists like, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and The Who, he became very skillful at reproducing even the most difficult bass chops. Jerry is a talented sound engineer and has assisted numerous bands in attaining sounds they never though imaginable at his studio in SoCal. He has recorded and produced the sound tracks for Dick Clark's New Years Eve programs. Sandy Hancock - Drums, Vocals Sandy has worked on: 22 Jacks, Thump, China White, Joyride, Adolescents, Mechanics, The Brats James Palmer - Piano, Organ, Vocals Jimmy started playing piano at age 7 and underwent classical training.
Growing up he played baroque and classical music in local (SoCal) recitals and competitions. He played keyboards with several SoCal cover bands throughout the 1980s and 1990s (gSpotz, Mitchells, Occupants) and recorded original work with remnant musicians from the Green Natives. With an addiction for that screaming Hammond B3 sound ala Deep Purple, Jimmy delivers growling organ solos with chaotic outbreaks.
