Randy Budner (Plainfield, NH), vocals/guitars
When not taxiing his three kids around to school and sporting events or overseeing the training and competition schedule of the Dartmouth Men's Water Polo Team, Randy busies himself as a solo musician, playing venues around the Upper Valley, or as the frontman for Loose Cannons. Since moving from Manhattan to Plainfield, NH, in 2002, he has been performing regularly at most of the local spots. Inspired by Jerry Garcia, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, and Keith Richards, Randy finds ample material with which to fill Loose Cannons' sets.
Andy Bourke (New London, NH), bass
As a retired bass and tuba player in the US Army Band, Andy has played virtually every style of music in a variety of arrangements. A consumate professional, Andy's services are in high demand in the Upper Valley. As a member of Sol Food, About Gladys, the Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble, and as a 5-year member of Loose Cannons, Andy has played anything from Dixieland to Funk to R&B, to Classical. When not playing his bass or tuba, Andy can be found at home with his wife, Diane, running marathons or on his bike or skis.
John Foster (Lebanon, NH) drums/percussion
John brings a wide bredth of performance experience to the band. As a veteran of the Nashville studio and touring scene, John has played every style of music with touch and grace. In the Upper Valley, John's services are employed by no fewer than 5 bands on a regular basis. If you see a lot of live music in the area, chances are you've seen John sitting behind the drums.
John Sanchez (Grantham, NH), guitars/vocals
John made a triumphant return to the band last year after taking a 4-year break to tour with a country band. John's tasteful Tele licks are ubiquitous with the Loose Cannons sound. It's hard to believe we survived his absence during his country stint. Aside from ripping guitar leads or providing vocal harmonies with Loose Cannons, John spends his time teaching guitar lessons, pursuing his Master's degree in education, and being a father to his two sons.
