Being friends since knee high to a grasshopper... we started playing music together at 14 (drew) and 17(dave)influenced by our parents records and always good rock and roll. Now at age 19 and 22 we are more influenced by life and its circumstances our musical expeditions did more into jazz, fusion, pyhcadelia and world rhythms...while always maintaning a solid groove. We love a good show ( especially Widespread Panic!) and like to put one on as well.
more to come...
