Kathie Martin, born Kathleen Susan Griffin, grew up in Silver Spring, Md and always wanted to be on the stage. As a small child she loved to sing and dance and was always in school plays and musicals. Kathie taught herself to play several instruments, guitar, piano, flute and saxophone. She started her professional career in music as a member of the Fabulous Hubcaps Show Band from 1980 to 1993. Then formed Kathie Martin & The Hot Rods along with her late husband, Willie Farrell. She has toured all over the US and shared the stage with many of the great rock & roll bands. Kathie sang back up with the Tokens on Lion Sleeps Tonite at several live shows. After a 5 year hiatus from performing, Kathie was encouraged by former band members, drummer, Mike Naumann and singer, Mickey Gasbarre to put the band back together. Kathie's son, William "Will" Farrell is stepping up on trumpet and guitar. Bob Clifton on Keyboards, Gabby Gabaldon on Lead Guitar and Pete Booker on Bass round out the 7 piece group.
