What got this band together and started in this business?

We formed up back in early 2003. Bob and I (Chris) came from the band Zwarte’ and Drew and Shane came from the band Stones Throw. We are all original members. We started this band to put on great live shows, to produce original music and to have fun!

Who writes and produces all the material for the band?

It is entirely a group effort.

Has the band played in front of or with any acts our readers would know from the Mainstream?

Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, and The Young Dubliners.

Where can people access your music on the web?

Once our new website is up: but for now

Any embarrassing moments on stage?


Any good stories you want to tell us?

We have way to many to tell. We’ve had truck breakdowns, blizzards, and national acts playing on our gear during our breaks.

Who is the bands musical influence?

AudioSlave, RATM, The Police, Eric Johnson, Foo Fighters, Aerosmith, – the list is really long but mostly rock stuff present and past.

What is your musical background like?

All of us grew up playing music. It’s just what you did! Drew, Shane, and I (Chris) have a traditional musical background but all of us grew up playing in rock bands in High School.
Any other members in your family that are musicians?

Drew’s parents are in the band DD and the Fayroh’s. His dad also plays in the Abbey Road band.

What is the TOP reason why you want to play music?

We all love playing in front of people.

What’s your stance on file swapping?

It costs money to make an album. We put a lot of work into all of our songs and it does suck when someone steals it. Spend the $.99 and go on iTunes and buy it.

What is the process of making a cd?

We are currently working on our 2nd album so I’ll tell you how it’s been going so far. We started out by renting a cabin in the middle of nowhere in South Dakota and we spent a total of 6 days writing and recording songs. We’ll go back and rerecord a few things but the music itself is pretty much finished. We just have to finish writing lyrics for some of the songs.

How do you get the word out about your music?

Show show shows!  Just go to and look at our calendar; we play a lot of shows.

How is your local responce to your music?

Our new songs have been getting a tremendous response from our shows and we have been getting some radio airplay even before the album has been released!

What is the furthest you have traveled for a gig?

We played at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

What tune on the cd are you most proud of?

From our first album I think Best Intentions is my favorite song but it’s too early to tell with the new album. I like all of the new stuff!
