How did you form?

We formed in the winter of 2009 as a group of serious young musicians who wanted to seriously pursue a career in music.

Who are some of your influences?

We’re influenced by the pop rock music we all listened to growing up as well as the new sounds we grow into everyday. Currently we really like the Boston band Bad Rabbits, as well as bands like Circa Survive, Monty Are I and Paramore. We’re also influenced by the dance music that flows through the city’s bars and clubs.

Finish the sentence, someone would like your band if they like…

…dancing, letting loose, partying, fun, humor…

What has your most memorable moment as a band been?

The most memorable moment would be stepping on to the stage at CollegeFest 2010 at the Hynes Convention Center.

Walk us through your songwriting process.

Our songwriting process is usually a storm of ideas between members. Each member comes from a different background, which often makes it difficult to agree on certain creative directions, but in the end it gives us a diversity that’s not often seen in local music.

Who is the best musician in your band?

I’d say the best musician in the group is Tom. Everyone has different skills and contributes in unique ways, but Tom has something special.

What is your favorite local venue?

Church of Boston. We love the stage setup,atmosphere, and the staff is always very polite and professional. And to top it off, the venue is in a great location right next to Fenway.

What separates you from other local bands?

We incorporate a custom light show with very dance oriented rock music, all wrapped inside a party atmosphere.

What do you have coming up that people should know about?

We have our CD release party at Church of Boston on April 9. We’re Sponsored by a clothing company called The Royal Crew Apparel who will also be launching their new clothing line at the show. It will be a combined CD release show / Royal Crew launch party complete with a fashion show.

Convince our readers to see your next show.

Our show is unlike any local show you have ever seen before. The show is just that -it’s a show – not just some musicians playing music. It’s filled with energy, movement, and dancing; all under a crazy light show.
