Forever Man celebrates the music of legendary guitarist/singer/songwriter, Eric Clapton, from
his early projects such as Cream and Derek and Dominos, to his solo work since the ’70s. With a
career spanning 5 decades. Eric Clapton truly is the Forever Man.

The band is comprised of seasoned musicians with decades of performing history and consists of:
Jerry Skaw (guitar/vocals). Jerry began playing guitar in his early teens, teaching
himself by working with records from ’70s influences, most notably Eric Clapton.
Jerry studied with Jimmy Herring (Jazz is Dead, Widespread Panic), Steve Mesplé
(Wind Machine), and Joe Scott (Wind Machine, Acoustic Eidolon). Jerry Skaw has
over 30 years experience performing across the US with local rock and blues acts. In
Colorado, this includes Blind Child Rockin’ Blues Band, Paradise Theatre Styx
tribute and now, Forever Man.

Jeff Banach (guitar/vocals). Jeff began playing guitar in high school, mainly to
meet girls. He is a veteran of many local bands over the years, including Vis a’ Vis,
Kid Foxx, Power Factor, Danny Masters Band, 69 Times and Paradise Theatre Styx
tribute. Among his musical influences, Jeff includes Eric Clapton, Rush, Dream
Theatre and The Beatles, and still finds himself angry with Yoko for breaking up “the

Lauren Parsons (vocals). Soulful, versatile and deliberate. Lauren never shys
away from a challenge. In 2012 she joined reggae group Roots in Volution, who
soon after released an album of her original songs. In 2015, Lauren united her
passions for singing and the music of the Grateful Dead by joining tribute band,
Switchman Sleepin’, which has since become a Northern Colorado favorite. In 2018
and 2019, Lauren took on the roles of legends Joni Mitchell, Mavis Staples and
Richard Manuel in sold out performances of Fort Collins’ Last Waltz Revisited. She
continues to collaborate with bands across the front range, belting out songs in the
style of artists such as Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin.

Mark Florence (keyboards/vocals). steel guitar, and keyboards in original bands
Hundred Mile House, DPM, Cherry Place Allstars, Thunk, and currently Max
Mackey Band. He is relatively new to the tribute scene playing keys and singing for
Grateful Dead tribute Peak2Peak since 2016 and most recently, Forever Man. While
being committed to being the best piano and organ player he can, he’s also been
diving into synthesizer programming of late. In addition to playing, he also records,
mixes, and masters multitrack soundboard recordings of live performances, and
can run live sound via his own mediumsized sound system.

David Bergner (bass guitar). A native of Boulder, CO, David grew up playing
piano, eventually venturing into guitar which he played for over fifteen years,
spawning numerous bands and solo projects. During this time, he studied Music
Composition at Occidental College in Los Angeles, where he honed his skills
composing classical and film music, as well as electronic and experimental writing.
It wasn’t until his early 20’s that he found his soul instrument, the bass guitar, which
brought to bear all his musical experience. David became enthralled with the bass
and its unique role in the band of marrying rhythm, harmony, and melody.
Henry Lokay (drums/vocals). Henry has been playing drums since the age of 3.
He has studied both in the US and abroad, including with Fred Buda of the Boston
Pops, Neil Grover, and jazz great Alan Dawson, and music performance and
business at the University of Massachusetts/Lowell. While Henry’s first love is rock
music, he has performed musical theater extensively with groups such as the
Colonial Chorus, King Richard’s Faire, Walpole Footlighters and Lynnfield
Spotlighters. Henry has also performed with various local artists including the Styx
tribute band Paradise Theater. Henry’s talents additionally include vocal
performances with the Medieval Manor in Boston, and cowriting, playing, and
singing with One Mile Down.
