In 2001, the drummer for Ryan's Illsley's band, Monkey Wrench, was unable to perform in an upcoming show. Dan Taylor's band, Procreation, was scheduled to headline the same show, so Dan filled in on drums for Monkey Wrench. Dan and Ryan have been playing music together ever since.
Dan and Ryan went their separate ways after high school, but reunited in 2008 and began writing songs together again. And in the summer 2010, they headed into Clark Creative Recording Studio to record tracks for what would eventually become A Night To Forget.
Later that year, Shawn DeCoteau joined the band as bass guitar player, and the trio was complete.
