Composed of three music educators (Masami, Afton, and Kristy) and a classical guitarist (Walter), Walter and the Night Owls was formed when a last minute gig sparked a musical kinship. The band is currently working on their debut full length album. For more information on Walter and the Night Owls visit www.walterandthenightowls.com .
