Teri Alison (Vocals)
Teri may not have been born on stage... but it was close! It's rumored that she danced before she walked -- Always singing, performing for family and wearing out the needle playing songs over and over! At eight, she sang Rhinestone Cowboy with a local band on stage for a large crowd. That little taste of the stage hooked her. She watched every show about music... the Osmonds, Soul Train, Solid Gold, and American Bandstand. As a teen, she discovered Pat's Crimes of Passion album during a summer with her sister... By summer's end, that tape was spent! But not Teri - She sang all the time! At home, with friends, in choir and just about anyplace she could get away with it!

A friend suggested she try Weekend Warriors and join a band. It was a success - she's still hooked on performing. That Warrior band provided her a second shot fronting a band and she kicked it off with Hit Me with your Best Shot. Ever since, Teri has been giving it her best shot fronting several bands including Unlicensed Therapy, Straight Shooter and Press Play. It has come full circle and today Teri plays Pat in Invincible and is again singing all Pat's songs... this time, under the lights on stage!

Steve Quartarola (Drums)
Steve Quartarola – a.k.a., Crash (“Myron”) is a Bay Area-bred drummer who spent most of the 80’s and early 90’s slugging it out in the hard rock/metal circuit in both the S.F. Bay Area and L.A. music scenes. Although he immersed himself in jazz and classical music in high school and college, his first love was always rock. His influences range from Terry Bozzio, Simon Phillips, John Bonham, Danny Carey and Neil Peart to such jazz legends as Buddy Rich, Louie Bellson and Tony Williams. He has collaborated and performed with numerous bands and musicians, covering a wide range of musical genres and has performed on and released world-wide recordings with the bands Black Ice, Altar of The King and Testament, to name a few. Like many musicians from the 80’s, he took a break from the music scene when grunge took over during the 90’s, but by the early 2000’s got back into performing via, offers to record and perform live with various local acts. In 2013, he was offered the drummer spot for local, 80’s hair band tribute, Skid Roses, which he continues to perform with to this day in addition to INVINCIBLE. Regarding INVINCIBLE, Crash says that getting to perform the Pat Benatar catalog is a dream come true, as Myron Grombacher was always one of his favorite drummers and the songs themselves were so incredibly good and timeless. “The amount of success and attention this band has garnered in the short time we’ve been together has been both exciting and incredibly promising, but not surprising given the stellar musicianship and attention to detail each member brings to the songs and visual presentation. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for INVINCIBLE.”
John Balestrini (Bass Guitar)
John Balestrini (Bass Guitar)
The first song John could play all the way through as a kid -- on guitar -- was Hit Me with your Best Shot. Turns out it would also be the first song he played live in his college band in someone's garage. Later in life, his boys started playing bass and challenged him to learn bass with them. Game on! Bass just clicked in John's hands -- it fit, felt natural, could funk, groove, and rock in ways that meant that he simply couldn't put it down. His first song as a bassist? Hit Me with your Best Shot! Soon the guitars were collecting dust and bass was John's instrument. When the opportuniuty to start a Pat Benatar Tribute came up, John was all in -- technical challenges, musicality and groove... Pat's songs have it! John hasn't looked back and likely playing a Pat song as you read this!
Philip Wright (Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard)
Philip Wright (Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard)
Philip grew up listening to classical music and '50s pop, oblivious to modern music until "Jessie's Girl" caught his attention in 1981 (he didn't know that Neil Giraldo—Pat Benatar's lead guitarist—played the solo). This ignited Philip's passion for music. He joined every middle and high school band and orchestra within reach, finally getting his own guitar as a graduation gift. Philip first met Thomas Murphy during the 1991 Skip's Music Stairway To Stardom program, where Philip's band took 1st place. After a chance reunion in 2016, Philip became the keyboardist and rhythm guitarist to Thomas' leads in the newly formed Pat Benatar tribute band. Aside from Invincible, Philip writes and records original music for The Huṣht, and returns to Stairway To Stardom as a winning coach. Philip looks forward to many years performing live with his talented Invincible bandmates.
