    Banyan is an art rock/alternative rock band with heavy jazz, funk, and punk influence, based in Los Angeles, California. The leader and co-founder is Stephen Perkins, who first played drums for Jane’s Addiction (1986-1991, plus later regroupings), and then for Porno for Pyros. He co-founded the group with David Turin. The core members of the band are Nels Cline on guitar, Willie Waldman on trumpet and Ex-Minutemen Mike Watt on bass. Mike Watt also sings on some Banyan songs. Both Mike Watt and Nels Cline generally play only West Coast dates and at various times the band has had Rob Wasserman on bass and Clint Wagner on guitar fill in when they are unavailable. Saxophone players Steve Mackay and Herman Green, guitar player Calvin Newborn, and bass player J. D. Westmoreland have also joined the band during select live shows.
