The band has been together for over 20 years. This is not the occasional garage band or weekend warrior band that performs once or twice a month. This group maintains their professional sound and energy from constantly performing over the years and building the skills to make events successful. The group started with Reba & Kirk, meeting in Reno NV and starting a group with Dan and working the casino circuit. This is where their unique polished sound came from! The demands for professional, polished sound, vocals, and performances came from the casino environment. They haven’t strayed far from those roots. That formula has made Proxy the hit that they are, returning year after year to events like Hot August Nights in Reno (20 years), Folsom Antiques Fair (14 years), Blackhawk Country Club (17 years). Add Myron to the mix to complete the sound and you’ve got a group that will make your happiness and event a success their top priority!
Now Proxy is focusing it's performances on wineries, small clubs, breweries, and festivals. Their desire to spread the word about Classic Rock
Who We Are
Kirk Poole (Guitar, Sequencing, Lead & Backing Vocals)- Kirk has been hooked on music since his teen days, when he performed in many local bands, which eventually led to large arena performances including the Fillmore West. His bands Opened for many groups including Santana, The Box Tops, The Carpenters, Bread, Tower of Power and many more. He worked at A & M Records in Hollywood for a brief time as a studio guitarist. In Proxy he not only plays guitar and adds his unique interpretation to guitar parts, he sequences or produces the unique smooth sound that Proxy delivers with each live performance.
Reba Poole (Keys, Lead & Backing Vocals)- Reba began her singing career as an adult. She quickly gained a great reputation as a powerful singer while performing at various venues in the Washington D.C. area. This part of her career culminated in performances at The Kennedy Center in Washington and The Lincoln Center in New York. She has been known to many as an authentic recreation of Grace Slick, and Bonnie Raitt. Two different vocal styles that show her range as a vocalist.
Myron Gomes (Drums, Lead & Backing Vocals)- Myron started his career in Madera CA and toured the state with a legendary valley band called The Ebonknights. He later toured the world entertaining troupes in The Lively Affair. He has been active in the music scene since, and now is a master of the electronic drum set. Not only must he be a skilled percussionist, he has had to master the technology aspect, of blending his drum sound into the processed sound of Proxy. When Myron sings Rod Stewart at a performance the audience wonders, how did they get Rod to perform with them!
