Mike Martin (vocals + rhythm guitar) comes from Gardner, MA. He has been a music junkie his entire life, growing up with rock from the 1970's through the 2000's, most notably 90's rock. He finally bought his first guitar when he was 19 and taught himself how to play. Mike is also an avid runner, automobile enthusiast, and a graduate of Fitchburg State University.

Matt Swanton (lead guitar + vocals) grew up in Shirley, MA. He started playing guitar when he was just a 9-year-old, and is a huge blues and classic rock aficionado. Matt graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a degree in Sound Recording Technology. In addition to being a music nerd, he is also a vintage muscle car enthusiast.

Dan Mueller (bass) hails from Leominster, MA, and would gladly discuss the merits of that fine city with anyone willing to lend an ear.  In his free time he enjoys watching the Red Sox, running, and discovering obscure 90's bands. Dan is a graduate of Williams College in Williamstown, MA.

Rob Kogut (drums) originates from Leominster, MA. Rob is a pro at picking things up, as well as putting them down. His style and taste are influenced by a wide range of music, including pop-punk, hip hop, metal, and classic rock. When he's not playing drums, he's probably asleep and dreaming about playing drums.
