We had the wonder gift of Arlan Oscar Schierbuam’s keyboard talents joining us for Project ELÉCTRICO. There’s some rocking Mini Moog that we couldn’t film because it’s a new beta keyboard that Arlan is testing. Awesome day! Thank you to Randy Troast for hosting our B3 music-making party in Pasadena, CA, and making the tastiest, homemade pizza’s and margarita’s to boot.
Arlan Oscar Schierbaum started dabbling with the keyboards at the tender age of three. His parents quickly signed him up for piano lessons the very next year, and soon he was playing organ at the local church in his South East Los Angeles neighborhood.

Rocket was born in Temple, Texas and grew up in Attleboro, a small town in Massachusetts. His father, a country guitarist going by the name Rick Rayle, had young Rocket appear with him on stage at the Grand Ol’ Opry. Rayle played with many greats from Johnny Cash to Minnie Pearl. Rocket traded in his Mickey Mouse guitar (literally) and started guitar lessons with his father at age 11. Five years later, he was playing clubs all over Boston and Providence (they were a little more lax on ID’s back then).
