www.facebook.com/overdrivekc overdriverocks@hotmail.com

BRIAN: Originally from northern California, he moved to Kansas City about 3 three years ago and has always had a passion for music. As a child he took piano lessons and then moved on to drums in high school. He traveled with the high school audition choir and played in a few different garage bands. He enjoys a wide range of musical in-fluence, including Def Leppard, Van Halen, Dave Matthews and Chevelle.

NICK: Born an Okie from Muskogee, transplanted to St. Joseph, Mo. and now rooted in Kansas City. Nick started playing in bands in the early 80's and into 1990...and has always been involved in bands, no matter the decade! He also does a lot of his own writing and home recording. When asked who his influences are he states, "My list starts with Rick Wakeman from YES, and ends with Steve Walsh of KANSAS.

SCOTT: Born and raised in the K.C. area, he was influenced by music from a very early age because of the extensive record collection owned by his parents. He tinkered with both the guitar, and the piano, that his family owned. He played trumpet and violin durning early school years and eventually moved to bass. Playing in band and or-chestra he admired Bach, Mozart, and jazz greats Rufus Reid and Ja-co Pastorious. Later, he would grow to admire bassists Geddy Lee, Cliff Burton, and Billy Sheehan.

LAMAR: Grew up in South Kansas City and started playing the violin at age 6, then switching to guitar at 13 years old. His first influence was Ozzy Osbourne, and from there it became guitar greats like Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen. The list just keeps on growing and once you hear this guy play you'll understand why he's called "Guitar Lamar."

CHUCK: A transplant from Indiana, Chuck became interested in drums when his sister told him girls liked drummers. This one thought motivated him during the long hours of practice throughout high school and into the early years of his career. He had been playing drums professionally for five years before he learned his sister had just made it all up. Fortunately, Chuck discovered that he enjoyed playing drums and has continued, with only the music motivating him. Influences include Van Halen, Motley Crue, Rush, and Ozzy Osborne.
