Tim Clotworthy: Guitar
Tim Clotworthy started playing guitar when he was ten years old back in 1971. Tim played in various rock, country, and classic rock bands in high school, college, and after graduating from college, at various times performing at clubs and colleges in DC, MD, VA, and the Eastern Shore beaches through the 80s and early 90s. After taking off most of the 90s to raise his children and focus on his career, Tim returned to performing around 2013. Tim enjoys performing most styles of music.
Estel Dillon: Drums
Estel Dillon has been playing drums since childhood, and his influences include great percussionists such as Ringo Starr, Buddy Rich, Billy Cobham, Ginger Baker, and Tony Williams. Playing in bands throughout high school and college, Estel spent a year studying jazz at North Texas State University before graduating with a double major in communications and music from Virginia Tech. He spent several years “on the road” playing all over the United States with a variety of groups: rock, jazz, big band, Broadway, supper club floor shows and disco music. Of note, Estel performed with the Roanoke Symphony under the baton of conductor Arthur Fiedler, he has backed up singer Vic Damone, and performed with jazz greats such as guitarist Randy Johnston and pianist Steve Kessle. Some of Estel’s most memorable performances include appearing on the Dinah Shore show, and he performed in Germany for six weeks on a USO tour. After moving to the Washington D.C. area in the early eighties, Estel took a break from music to concentrate on his career job at NBC News. In 1995, he got the music bug again and began playing on the wedding band circuit, with groups such as Legacy, Kaleidoscope, and entertainer Tom Saputo’s bands. The Too Extra band provides Estel with new inspiration and enthusiasm to continue to make great music with Dave, Danielle and Tim!

Dave started playing piano when he was 5 and by the age of 14 he was thinking about athletics...then he and his older brother Jon heard the Beatles.....WOW! Dave and his brother Jon had to be in a band!
He has played guitar, bass, and keyboards in a variety of different bands ever since.
Dave is the driving force in this band that keeps the band booked solid and absolutely loves performing with his super-talented bandmates.
