In 1998 a group of Past Commodores of the PUGET SOUND CRUISING CLUB performed at Seattle’s Corinthian Yacht Club. They included a University of Washington professor and his wife, a yacht repair specialist and a Shoreline Schools music teacher....all experienced blue-water sailors. 

After 18 years of performing The TROPICS have earned a reputation as one of the Northwest’s top bands. In addition to Weddings, Private Parties and Corporate Events they play for more Yacht Clubs than any band in Washington State!

The TROPICS feature the brilliant vocals of Elaine Skeffington, the saxophone, flute, guitar and keyboard of Shoreline Schools music teacher Greg Boehme (Bay-me) and the guitar artistry of Brian Monroney.

The TROPICS perform as a trio producing a sound beyond the abilities of larger groups. They provide reasonably priced professional services with an incredible variety of music including Classic Rock, Current Hits, Swing, Country, Blues and Jazz.
