When you watch Jeff Nevaras play the guitar you can't help but to stare in amazement! With a degree in performance from Berklee School of Music, Nevaras consistently wow's the crowd by showcasing his incredible skill and versatility; with a sense of confidence and humbleness that engages his listeners. Given the situation, he has the ability to wail on a rock solo, finger pick an acoustic folk song, and strum a slow jazz tune with the kind of power, passion, and energy that truly draws the audience in, keeping them captivated all night long. But that's not all; his solid lead vocals and ear for harmonies give dimension to each performance and brings any band he plays with to the next level.
A veteran on the Boston and National music scenes, Nevaras has shared the stage with Ricky "King" Russell, Jon Finn, Dave Buda, and internationally acclaimed vocalist Concetta Gordon; and has also toured with Country Hall of Fame Inductee Al Downing. Currently, Nevaras is the lead guitar player and male vocalist in First Class and Two-Way Street. He is the lead guitarist, male vocalist, and musical director in Ezra, and also teaches guitar lessons at his home studio.

Anthony Grant has quite the musical background. Growing up in Toledo, Ohio, Anthony listened to his dad sing Opera, Pop, Country, Jazz, R&B, and Gospel music, which explains why he feels "right at home" when performing for some of the same audiences today. Anthony began his musical career playing classical saxophone until landing on the front steps of Berklee College in 1980.

At Berklee, Anthony studied sax with George Garzone and Andy McGhee, and sax, flute, clarinet, and oboe with Joe Viola, who was the department chair at the time. Since leaving Berklee, Anthony has served as arranger/copyist for The Henry Jimenez Orchestra, and various other Boston area Merengue and Salsa bands. He has written jingles and theme songs for a variety of clients, including the community showcase "Visions", which first aired on Channel 56 in 1987.

Anthony has shared the stage with Chaka Khan, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, and the entire Parliament Funkadelic crew, Tower of Power, Freddy Cole (brother of Nat Cole), Average White Band, Kool and the Gang, Danilo Perez, Walter Beasley, Branford Marsalis, and countless others. In addition to performing with First Class for the last 12 years, Anthony currently runs his own recording studio and music production company "SCBT Productions", working for several different record labels, working with up and coming artists, and continues to contribute o the national music scene. Some of the many dance moves you'll see Anthony execute, can be traced back to his dad, who danced professionally, particularly in the Toledo Ballet's version of "The Nutcracker" for almost ten years! As you may have guessed by now, the talent and energy that emanates from Anthony, has been in the making for many years!
