The Quitters are right-side up finger stylist (Stevie Coyle), and an upside-down flat picker (Glenn “Houston” Pomianek). They were the two original members of The Waybacks quintet, and Glenn was the long-time lead guitarist for Houston Jones.

Glenn Houston’s guitarist influences range from Michael Bloomfield to Doc Watson, as shows in his mastery of both the acoustic and electric guitar. Glenn has been voted Best Guitarist by the Northern California Bluegrass Society and has shared billing with Emmylou Harris, Merle Haggard, Earl Scruggs, Doc and Merle Watson, Willie Nelson and countless other famous artists. He co-founded the Waybacks in 1999 with Stevie Coyle and Chojo Jacques, and was co-founder of the powerhouse Americana band, Houston Jones.

Stevie Coyle was inspired to take up finger-picking guitar by the first Hot Tuna album. After degrees in Theatre and Theology, he hit the road with The Royal Lichtenstein Circus, doing comedy, magic, wire-walking, sword-swallowing, and juggling. Since then he has released a solo CD and opened his own high-end acoustic guitar shop, Mighty Fine Guitars, in Lafayette, CA. In addition to his stellar musical career, Stevie also claims fame as an actor and comedian, including appearances on Cheers and The Comedy Store.
Honey Whiskey Trio tells stories through song and stomp, highlighting the musical traditions of American Folk Music.

They arrange and explore music from the front porches, music halls, and hymn books of early America, and create new music that honors these rich histories. Beyond the stage, their passion for music education, community engagement, and singing unapologetically drives them as they work with youth and adult vocal ensembles and lead community workshops with life-long music lovers across the United States.
“Their sound is intoxicating… To simply classify this trio as folk, bluegrass, or jazz would be to do them a great disservice. What I hear is great music and what I see is great joy.” – Bluegrass Spin
-Courtney (and Ann Louise & Christina
