Stanley L. Witinski  (08/05/1943  – 06/26/2016)

Our hearts remain heavy as we remember the passing of The NEW EARTH BAND bassist and beloved friend Stan Witinski.  Stan was not only a superb bassist, but he was also a fine pianist and organist, having played keyboards for many years with Bobby Newton & The Band.  Stan, whose father was an icon in motorcycle racing, had a long and well-traveled career in rock, pop, blues, and jazz, dating back to the late 1950′s, playing with more headliner bands than memory allows – including Rock’n’Roll pioneer Chuck Berry - ultimately joining The NEW EARTH BAND in 2010.  Pleasant, easy, and so agreeable, Stanley L. “Smith” Witinski was truly loved by all.  To say Stan will be sorely missed would constitute the understatement of the 21st Century.

WARREN  L. ”Mose” BOYER   (10/11/1927  -  09/13/2011)

  REMEMBERING   NEW EARTH BAND  fiddler and bassist Warren “Mose” Boyer.  A most earnest, courteous, respectful, kind, gentle man, and a true master musician, “The Moser” was one-of-a-kind,  irreplaceable indeed.  He will be missed by fellow  NEW EARTH BAND  members, as well as by the countless numbers of followers who loved “Mose” throughout his astounding, seven-decade-long, musical legacy.
