Feel This features local guitar wizard Peter Sprague, and Fattburger’s smooth jazz masters Kevin Koch (drums) and Evan Marks (guitar). Other guest players include Dave Scott (trombone), Steve Smith and Lynn Willard (keys), Vince Clementson (guitar), Justin Grinnell and Nathan Brown (bass).

Bill Shreeve plays soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, flute, piccolo, wind synthesizer (an electronic wind instrument), keyboards, and hand percussion.
