In 1998 a group of past and current commodores of the PUGET SOUND CRUISING CLUB played for a dance at Seattle’s Corinthian Yacht Club at Shilshole Bay Marina. They included a University of Washington professor, his wife and a Shoreline Schools music teacher....all blue-water sailors.

he TROPICS have changed personnel over the years earning a reputation as one of the Northwest’s top bands. Today, in addition to weddings, private parties and corporate events, they perform for more yacht clubs than any other band in the state.

      The TROPICS line-up features the brilliant vocals of Elaine Skeffington, the saxophone, flute, guitar, keyboard and vocals of Shoreline Schools music teacher Greg Boehme (Bay-me), and the guitar wizardry and vocals of Craig Webb.

     The TROPICS perform as a trio yet produce a sound beyond the abilities of larger groups. They perform for clubs, weddings, private parties and corporate events providing friendly, professional entertainment services featuring the music that people really want to hear!
