Robert Santelli (Asbury Park Press) wrote Yuris violin style and execution were tantamount to ground-breaking innovations in music. Yuri was a founding member of Kinderhook, which took the tri-state music scene to new horizons. Mr. Turchyn, a seasoned studio session player; recently performed and was interviewed on the Hispanic NBC - Telemundo network. He has also produced, engineered and played on Teatro Sis (the premier Hispanic theater company in NJ) CD releases.

Bassist Jim Grant is known for his groove oriented playing. Drummer Al Selert has been a much sought after player in the tri-state area for years. Guitarist Ernie Fortunato is one of the finest jazz players around. Percussionist Stacy Grant has a keenly developed sense of rhythm from his years playing with MZume, a drum oriented samba group.
