SCOTT HEARLEY - Drums

Providing the pulse to the rock-solid rhythms of Chasing Mabel, drummer Scott Hearley has played the timekeeper's role for numerous bands in the Upper Midwest, including underground alt-rock favorites, Lampshade Honey.  Following a 10-year hiatus from the music scene, Scott spent 6 years with the Polly Baker Band before establishing the heartbeat of Chasing Mabel.

CHUCK BACKUS - Bass / Vocals

At home in the deep end, bassist Chuck Backus injects the Chasing Mabel groove with workmanlike-precision and blues-inspired passion.  With a gig resume that has taken him across the United States, Canada and Mexico, Chuck keeps Chasing Mabel tight in the corners and hell-bent on the straightaway.
