Beki Brindle grew up playing guitar with the legendary James "Yank" Rachell (of Diving Duck and She Caught The Katy fame.) In 1983, she was invited to Woodstock, NY by Rick Danko and Richard Manuel who had discovered her at Indiana University playing blues! Subsequently, Beki joined The Tom Pacheco band, and Eric Anderson's tour band. She played with these bands for several years as she still worked with Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, John Sebastian, and others rock and blues artists. In 1988, Beki joined Tom Pacheco for a year when he moved the band to Dublin, Ireland. While she was there, she also joined the Mary Stokes Blues Band and experienced over-night Irish fame due to playing the Guinness Jazz Festival in Cork City and also due to a week long performance on the National TV show, "NightHawks."

In 1992, Beki began playing with Yank Rachell again and made two albums with her band, Windopane. She was playing with Jerry Lee Lewis off and on.
