The band is Federico Peña on piano, Mikel Combs on bass, and Quincy Phillips on drums.

Federico Gonzalez Peña was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His first piano was left to him by his grandmother, an accomplished pianist and organist. After two years with a local teacher, his parents saw that Peña had a talent and sent him to renowned classical pianist Antonio De Raco, with whom Peña spent seven fruitful years. Feeling constrained by the rigidity of classical music, Peña began to branch out and play recording sessions with many of the finest musicians in Buenos Aires, though he was still just a teenager. He began exploring other styles of music like the funk of Earth Wind & Fire, the classic prog rock of Rush and Genesis, as well as the jazz-rock fusion of Jean-Luc Ponty and Herbie Hancock.

In 1984, at 18-years old, Peña made the move to the States, attending the Berklee College of Music for one year before settling in Washington, D.C. He landed gigs with the city's best go-go bands and began to spread his wings from there. His skills on both the acoustic piano and electric keys have led to tours and recordings with some of the world's most accomplished artists.

Peña continues to demonstrate his superior talents working with an extensive list of well-known artists such as Me'shell N'DegeOcello, Maxwell, Angela Boffill, Rare Essence, Pieces of a Dream, Digable Planets, Alana Davis, George Howard, Roy Hargrove, Chaka Khan, Cassandra Wilson, Marcus Miller, SMV (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller & Victor Wooten) and many others. Currently he occupies the keyboard chair in SMV, tours some with Marcus Miller, and devotes his musical time to writing and producing.
