PLANET B   is the brainchild of Brett Palm, who plays bass and writes the songs. Brett spent years in the Caribbean, where he developed a taste for calypso and reggae, and worked extensively with Costa Rican singer and guitarist Carlos Herrera, playing Latin/South American music. It was after living in the Caribbean that Brettís extensive musical experiences led him to compose songs and continues to do so. He assembled the finest local musicians and in 2013 Planet B released their first CD and itís fabulous! All of the influences from the past come through in the tunes: You can hear rock, swing, reggae, calypso and bossa. Brett puts together well-crafted songs, leaving room for the musicians to stretch out. The stellar local musicians that comprise Planet B are David Schrader, Malcolm Granger, Randy Quan, Carlitos Medranos, Kendrick Freeman, and Brett Palm. The guys in Planet B are excellent players and they shine in the recordings and performances. They can rip it up with tasty leads, and support the other musicians. We look forward to hosting them at OCA for something completely different for Schaef-Abel Productions!
