Our Stories

Jon Crenson (guitar/vocals/noises) started playing music with childhood friends in the band "Who Cares", covering songs by many of the great rock bands of the time, including "Cream", "Jimi Hendrix", and The "Allman Brothers". In the late 70's Jon joined the band "Alexis", playing a diverse repertoire that ranged from "Pure Prairie League" to "Judas Priest", and everything in between. Later, Jon joined friend Ned Solomon's band (too many band names to list), playing a mix of folk-oriented cover tunes, along with some fantastic originals penned by Ned. During all of this, and for years after, "Who Cares" members got together whenever possible, and those jams and reunions became Jon's musical outlet while building a family and a career. When the "Who Cares" odyssey finally came to an end, Jon still had the passion to rock out and joined Fudd's Law. Jon's most important musical influences include "Eric Clapton", "Jimi Hendrix", "The Allman Brothers", "Jeff Beck", "B.B. King", "Freddie King", "Albert King", "Albert Collins" and "Rick Witcowski".

Walter Welch (drums/vocals/harmonica) started playing in bands in high school in Upper Marlboro, Maryland in the 60's and has been playing rock 'n roll and blues ever since. He played in several bands in the Boston area in college. Since 1975 he has been back in the Baltimore-Washington area, playing in such bands as The Mystics, Easy Money, The Rackers and Freezing Hot. His musical influences include "Cream", "Jimi Hendrix", "The Allman Brothers", "The Beatles", "Led Zeppelin", "Aerosmith", "Blue Oyster Cult", and "The Rolling Stones". About playing music, Walt said "When you're doing something you love, and other people really like what you're doing, it doesn't get any better than that!"

Philly-native Bill Cozzo (Guitar Vocals) started playing guitar when he was about 15 and has played in MD bands since he moved here after college more than 30 years ago. He has played in both cover bands and original projects at venues including the Columbia Lakefront Summer Music Series and D.C.'s prestigious Blues Alley. His Classic Rock and Blues influences include the Allman Brothers Band, Carlos Santana, Rush, Deep Purple, REO Speedwagon, and Blue Oyster Cult. A founding member of Fudd's Law, he is happy to return to the fold after a hiatus and looks forward to bringin' da' noise with da' boyz once again.

Mike Hutchins (bass/vocals) is originally from Upstate New York, but now lives in Severn. He has been playing guitar and bass off and on since he was twelve, performing in the 70's with Fat Chance and Summit, and later playing acoustic guitar and bass (as well as vocals) in Loose Thoughts as well as electric bass helping out Flashpoint. Mike also currently plays with Wasted Gravity, another classic rock band in the Central Maryland area.
