This latest incarnation of One gig At A Time formed in the fall of 2010. The powerhouse trio of Cookie Willacy, Eric Kurtzrock and Steve “pUNK” Cunningham fuses dynamic songwriting with unbelievable musical prowess.

Frontman Willacy brings with him years of experience with such greats as Bob Marley, Trent Reznor, Inner Circle, S.W.A.M.M.P. Band, Zephaniah and many more. His prodigious electric guitar talent is equalled by none, and continuosly astounds his audience. Authoring a majority of the band’s compositions, his music has a fresh but powerful message that lends itself ideally to funk, rock, country and blues.

Drummer Eric Kurtzrock spent most of the last 20 years drumming professionally in the L.A. and San Francisco markets before returning home to western Pennsylvania. He provides the percussive backbone with bewilding precision. His former projects include collaborations with the likes of David Byrne, Chipito Ayeres (Santana) and Eddie Henderson (Head Hunters, Herbie Hancock).

Bassist Steve “pUNK” Cunningham, a staple in the Pittsburgh Jam scene for nearly thirty years, rounds out the bottom end. Also a contributing author, his works offer a different angle, into the improvisational and often psychedlic worlds of music.

Together the three perform an incendiary set of original music that leaves their audiences completely spellbound and always wanting for more…
