Bart is Coastbeat's guitar player. Born in the fifties (just in time). This is why he rock 'n roll runs through his veins. For Bart, his inspirations come from Merle Travis, George Harrison, Lindsey Buckingham, Mike Campbell, Jimmy Vaughan and Brian Setzer (sorry Ernie). The big example for Bart of how a guitar player should let his tones roll is ''girls go wild'' from the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Every note hits the right tone.
Ernie is the singer/guitar player in Coastbeat. Together with Marion he laid the foundation for Coastbeat.
Ernie has been making music since he can remember. He started in different kinds of bands as a rock 'n roll drummer. During his teenage years, he followed numerous percussion and singing lessons. But, to be honest, the real inspiration came when he was improvising and started to learn to play the guitar by himself. His musicality goes beyond playing multiple instruments. He takes the lead vocals with great ease, while effortlessly sings a three part chorus.
