Drums and Percussion
Introduced to Fleetwood Mac in the mid 70’s, Don was attracted to the rhythmic beat drumming style of Mick Fleetwood and the syncopated drum patterns of his music. Having the opportunity to re-create Fleetwood Mac’s music is both an honor and a privilege. Don plays DW, Paiste, Zildjian , Vic Firth, and Latin Percussion.
Vocals and Percussion
Singing since she was five years old, Claudette learned she had a talent for vocal performance. Claudette has studied opera and theater, has a natural, quick-vibrato, and has found amazing costume designers to replicate Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks outfits. Having the opportunity to perform Fleetwood Mac’s classic songs live is her “dream come true”.
Keyboards and Vocals
Barbara, our music director, has studied and taught classical, jazz and blues piano, and can play just about any instrument. Barbara has always been inspired by the singing/songwriting skills of Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie and thanks to that inspiration, she has performed and published many songs of her own.
Guitars and Vocals
Christopher has been an avid Fleetwood Mac fan since the age of 14. The band’s songs inspired him to learn the guitar, and he worked with several local bands before moving to Los Angeles to study audio engineering. For eight years, while working as an independent engineer in various studios throughout the LA area, he had the honor to work on projects with acclaimed artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Stephen Bruton, Eddie Money, Rod Temperton, and the writing team of Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg (Madonna, Roy Orbison, Celine Dion, Cyndi Lauper, The Bangles, The Divinyls, Chrissie Hynde, and Whitney Houston). After subsequent years of working on stage and in the studio, Christopher hopes his longstanding admiration of FM’s history (and particularly of Lindsey Buckingham’s various live and studio performances) offers Fleetwood Mask concertgoers a carefully curated blend of Buckingham’s best work with Fleetwood Mac.

Bass Guitars and Vocals
Paul was the one who had the vision to unite the band back in 2011. He started playing bass before he was a teenager and was influenced by 70’s and 80’s rock, soul, funk and punk sounds of the Bay Area. True to the John McVie sound, Paul plays Alembic, Fender, and Rick Turner basses and enjoys the role of the dedicated bass player and drives the business side of Fleetwood Mask.
Jason has been playing guitar for over thirty years, his seminal work being his 18 years as axeman for the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies. In all, Jason recorded six album with the ‘Daddies from 1994 through 2009, including their 1997 double-platinum hit Zoot Suit Riot. He toured extensively with the band, including the Vans Warped Tour, stints opening for the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and international routes through Australia and Europe. After moving to the bay area from Eugene, OR in 2012, Jason taught at Walnut Creek’s Red House Music School and gigged with a variety of local bands. He’s now happy to call himself “The Sixth Mask.”
