MICHAEL (Tunes) ANTUNES


Michael Antunes

Michael Tunes Antunes, is an American musician and actor best known as the saxophone player for John Cafferty. Michael Antunes began his professional career in 1960 then he became a member of John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band. The band developed a reputation for themselves as a live act around New England, especially in their home state of Rhode Island throughout the 1970s. His soulful, from the heart solos are second to none. Tunes was in the movie Eddie and the Cruisers. He still performs live with John Cafferty on a regular basis.


DEREK ST. HOLMES

It all began in 1974 when St. Holmes’ band Scott opened a gig for Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes. Nugent was making a name for himself around the midwestern portion of the United States, but thus far had been unable to take his music to the next level. After seeing, and hearing, the young St. Holmes on stage, he knew what was missing and invited Derek to join his band. Derek brought a strong set of pipes, solid musicianship and songwriting skills to Nugent’s music, and in March of 1975 the world was introduced to him via Nugent’s self-titled debut album. While it was Nugent slinging down the guitar licks, it was Derek’s voice all over FM radio singing the soon to be classics “Stranglehold,” “Stormtroopin” and “Just What the Doctor Ordered.” In addition, Derek wrote, arranged and sang the classic tune “Hey Baby.” Derek quickly became regarded as one of the best voices on the international rock scene, all at the tender age of 22 years old. Nugent and St. Holmes continued their winning combination for three more iconic albums, Free for All in 1976, Cat Scratch Fever in 1977 and Double Live Gonzo in 1978.. Derek also continued his on again/off again relationship with Nugent in both the 1980s, and ‘90s, co-writing several songs on Ted’s comeback album Spirit of Wild in 1996.
