Glenn (the clutch) Noyes - Lead Vocals/ Percussion/Harmonica

Delbert “Del” Puschert-Sax
The saxophone-playing barber! Del started playing the sax when he was 3 years old. Lucky for the Assisted Living Band he has no plans to stop anytime soon! Best known as the sax player for Elvis for a short time, Puschert has also played with The Coasters, James Brown, The Drifters, Otis Reading, Ike and Tina Turner, Asleep at the Wheel, Charlie Daniels, Chuck Berry and Smokey Robinson, among others. About the same time he met Elvis, Puschert also became a member of the newly formed Van Dykes. During that racially charged time period from 1956 to 1966, he was the only white man in the African American eight-member group. He and his wife spend their winters in Texas
John "Nowa" Nowakowski-Bass
Nowa has played many types of music from big band, pop, Bluegrass, and Jazz with various bands in the Baltimore - Washington area. He enjoyed listening to WCAO, a Baltimore top 40 radio station in the Fifties. He loves playing "ELVIS" tunes and bass lines for ALB.
Tim Aquilino-Keyboard/Synthesizer & Vocals
Tim is a classically trained pianist, who began taking music lessons at the tender age of five. By the time he hit his teens, he had already been seduced by FM radio… and another rock-n-roll deviant was born. Where there was once Bach, there was now Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Instead of Richard Strauss, there were the Rolling Stones and Beethoven took a back seat to the Beatles and the Beach Boys. Over the past 35 years, Tim has routinely contributed to a number of bands and recordings spanning a wide variety of musical genres - from rock to reggae. His journey has now led him back to the roots of rock and roll with ALB.
