Four decades later, he still sits behind the drum set. Artie has traveled throughout the world playing with various entertainment superstars and world-class musicians such as Haifa Wehbi, Nora Fatehi, and The Supertones Band.

He has studied with the famous Peter Greco and has also learned from Robby Deitz, ‘NSYNC’s Billy Ashbaugh, and others, leading to his first public performance on drums at Orlando’s iconic House of Blues.
Blake plays all genres of music with enthusiasm and accuracy, including jazz, country, R&B, hip hop, soul, dancehall, Soca, chutney, funk, blues, and dub; however, his favorites are reggae, rock, Latin, and pop.
He is currently the drummer for Latitude28 band and actively contributes to his high school bands as well.
Heavy, a.k.a. Heavymetal Trvp, is Latitude28 Band’s newest vocalist. Already an established artist, Heavy enjoys combining heavy metal and hip-hop “trap” music on his solo shows and projects.
Heavy was born in Richmond, VA, and later moved to Florida, where he has rapped in recording studios since age 12.
Heavy fell in love with dance in high school; this pursuit led him to compete on America’s Got Talent. He also joined his high school chorus, which propelled him onto TV news and qualified him for district competitions.
Post-graduation, Heavy turned to music as a full-time career. He worked to gain proficiency in production, engineering, writing, artistry development, performance, and recording technique. Through his studies, he was fortunate to be able to collaborate with several household names in the music industry.
Heavy has two projects on Spotify and a solo album in the works. His desire is to become a household name in his own right. He enjoys being a part of Latitude28 Band, bringing his own flavor and energy to the group, and also contributing through song-writing and production.
Born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, Melvin began his musical journey the moment he heard his father playing a guitar. After several lessons, he fell in love with the guitar himself. He later joined a church choir, which further deepened his love of music.
At the age of 20, Melvin relocated to Orlando, FL, and called it home. He married his wife, Liza, whom he met in church. Also at church, he found a friend, John, who provided him with additional knowledge about his favorite instrument. Working in the youth ministry, Melvin, along with friends, began a rock Christian band that traveled and performed all over Florida.
In 2005, Melvin became a law enforcement officer and has served his community in this capacity for the past 14 years. Melvin’s neighbor, Latitude28 Band percussionist Artie Givargidze, invited him to a rehearsal after hearing him play his guitar at a gathering.

Creighton Underwood is a veteran with decades of music performance experience under his belt. He grew up playing trombone in high school band before switching to bass guitar. It was the bass that gave him his ticket out of town, when after his high school graduation, he left home for life on the road with a touring band.
A man with an insatiable desire for learning, Creighton throws himself into all opportunities that come his way. He became Director of Technology for HarperCollins/NewsCorp in New York and London, a driving instructor specializing in the Porsche 911/GT2, and a successful freelance educational software writer. He since has made his home in central Florida, pursuing opportunities in music.
Although regularly sought out by other bands for his caliber of playing and the professionalism he brings to his craft, he has chosen, with joy and gratitude, to devote himself full-time to the people and the music of Latitude28.
Gregory Zigon moved to central Florida as a child, and although his work and music have taken him all over the world, he still calls Florida home.

He pursued education in percussion performance at the University of Central Florida and enjoyed performing with the Florida Ambassadors of Music for audiences in five European countries.
His varied career has included percussion instruction at three Orlando-area high schools, work as a Disney performer, and five years with the United States Marine Corps.
Today Gregory is a businessowner with a brick-and-mortar store as well as a sound engineer, producer, and composer. He is excited about the opportunities to contribute this skillset to Latitude28 band.
