GDB / Bio

Founded sometime in the late 90’s in high school by always-member Jordan Rosenthal (drums) and friend Brian Kolek (bass), the band became a Ska-Punk favorite around town. Jordan and Brian endured numerous line up changes and and continued to progress musically until they were led to Kyle Vaden (saxophone), Tony Venniro (vocals and guitar), Lauren Coleman (vocals), and Christopher Piro (guitar). This is the line-up that turned the band into a musical endeavor that embraced experimentation and musical improvisation as much as it did catchiness and harmonization. It morphed into more than the sum of its parts, into something bluesy, rootsy, soulful, heavy, and light. To say it was a contradiction would be an understatement. Since 2006 members have been anything but idle in the interim. Brian Kolek and Kyle Vaden went on to form the band Huxtable for a brief time. Christopher Piro has been involved on and off with numerous local bands. Tony Venniro started the more rock influenced band Picture Pilot. Lauren Coleman relocated to the cooler shores of Orange County, CA, and formed her own project known as Pebaluna, who toured briefly with Rx Bandits through California, as well as a guest appearance on the 2008 The Sound of Animals Fighting release ‘The Ocean and the Sun’ (Epitaph Records). Jordan Rosenthal toured extensively across the country with local favorites One Pin Short, most notably opening for Streetlight Manifesto and Reel Big Fish, as well as writing numerous songs on their recent S/T release. In August on '09, He decided to leave the group and join 'HaleAmanO' a great Island/Reggae band breaking out in the Vegas Scene. It’s obvious that all members have kept music at the forefront of their lives.....and Now they are back about..With their best songs to date and an album in the works!
