Sarah Pinzon - VocalsAfter spending years studying the rules of proper vocal technique, Sarah now finds great joy in breaking those rules in order to sing pop, rock and heavy metal (she is a bit of a rebel . . ). She joined Patitude in 2012 and soon found that the similarities between her voice and Pat Benatar's are striking, which allows her to focus more on artistic interpretation and less on being an impressionist. Sarah places a great deal of importance on the chemistry of the band - this becomes very obvious when you see her perform and experience the feeling of pure joy that she projects to her audience. Whatever you do, you don't want to mess with her though, after spending five years playing roller derby, Sarah is one tough cookie!
Mark Hopkins - Bass
Mark is a long-time Northwest musician. He was the owner and chief engineer at Big Rock Recording studio. He has played in many original and cover bands including Smoke & Mirrors, Battery Kate, Shades of Red, Busted Radio, and Arena Kings. Originally a guitarist, Mark moved over to bass in 2012 and hasn’t looked back. He says, “It’s like I’ve found the thing I was supposed to be doing all along!” Shifting his focus from the studio to more live performing, he’s excited to be part of Patitude and looks forward to meeting many of you at our shows.
Dave Farrell - Guitar
Dave is no stranger to the Northwest Tribute Band scene. While he can also be found performing with Shambala (Three dog Night Tribute) and Third Stage (a Tribute to Boston), he really comes into his own while playing with Patitiude. "I love the feeling I get when I play with Patitude," he says, "it's a very stripped down and in your face rock and roll band, yet the subtleties and the complexities of the music are very demanding." While accurate reproduction of the music is very important to Dave, he never forgets that he is also on stage to put on a show. When you see Patitude play, you will know what I mean!
