SCOTT (vocals)
I started singing in the shower when I was in high school. My mom thought I was pretty good. So, I decided to start a rock band with my fellow Breakfast Club mate, Matt (shout-out to my New Trier posse!). The rest, as they say, is history.

MATT (guitar)
As Scott mentioned, he wanted to start a band and needed a guitar player. So, I got a guitar and learned to play by watching Marty McFly in the movie "Back to the Future." I also like to wear leather pants. So it was either join a band or a biker gang.

DUSTIN (guitar)
My sole inspiration to perform insane lead guitar licks/runs/riffs/jams/lines is knowing that I am standing on stage next to Ankur's magnificent beard. Seriously, it is truly magnificent. Have you seen it? If not, check out his picture in the PHOTOS section of ReverbNation. It will change your life and it may even give you the power to play insane guitar riffs like me.

ANKUR (congas)
I never officially "joined" the band. I just keep showing up for practice and no one has told me to leave... yet. I usually find out when the band is playing by listening to the other guys talk about where the next gig is while at rehearsal. I am pretty jazzed to be a member of a band of such a great group of guys.

CHRIS (drums)
I can't carry a tune to save my life. But as a child I liked to hit things with sticks. So it only made sense that I would one day play the drums. I once met the drummer of Jon Bovi. He gave me his headband. I haven't taken it off of my head since. Not even when I am sleeping. Did I mention that I like to hit things with sticks?

Bob (keys)
Can someone please yell out "Free Bird" during one of our shows????
