Formed in 2016, a group of seasoned musicians residing right off EXIT 85 on I77, gathered via a neighborhood meetup event to reminisce about music. That conversation led to a jam session, and eventually evolved into 4 guys playing multiple packed, standing room only gigs.
Dave Kiser on vocals, has 20 years of experience in many of Dallas/Fort Worth's most successful cover bands, including: REAL, Turning Trixie and Panik Radio. Rob Stewart a blues and rock guitarist from Northern New York, has gigged extensively in the Charlotte area with the bands Barefoot Pilgrim, Young Affiliates, and Alive After 5. Jack Sutherland on bass brings versatility, with 20 years of experience playing rock, funk and hip-hop in multiple bands, including 90's favorite Hillside Groove, the Dismoire Cove Trio, and Rand Tribe. And last but not least, Greg Thompson has drummed all across the globe, including the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool. He currently also performs with Tool Tribute bands in Charlotte, as well as A Perfect Tool in California.
