Doug and Ryan started playing together in Liquid Sphere around 2000. They played almost all originals and played around Holland for a few years before the band split. Then a few years later Ryan was in Tennessee Snow Friends and they where looking to get some recording done so they went to Adam. This got Adam and Ryan together and they started playing acoustic guitars together. Realizing that they had a good sound together Adam was asked to join the band Ryan was in and Bullfrogs and Bottlerockets was born. As an original band they played Holland, Grand Rapids, and some pretty crazy Grand Valley State University parties in Standale. MI. After losing their drummer Ryan and Adam started a band Yellow #5 that only lasted a year or less before the bassist left and they grabbed Doug on bass to create Super Heavy Duty Dudes. They played originals around the Holland area for a year before disbanding around 2008. A year or so had past when Adam, Doug, and Ryan decided to grab a couple of there talented friends, Jon and Chad (former early drummer in Uncle Rhombus), and play some jam sessions together and see if the energies where compatible. Well they are! The birth of Trip Triab had arrived! Experience on stage, musical vision, musical diversity, originallity and drive are what make Trip Triab who they are. There is not much out there like them!
