It all started on January 31, 1986 at a house on Harrell St in Blacksburg. It was Tom's 20th birthday. He and his roommates decided to throw a party and invited a band consisting of their friends from Ferrum College to come and entertain. Needless to say, there was a lot of fun going on and these friends found themselves unable to play. Tom, Wendy, Tim Taylor, Mark McLeod, Keith Cooley, Alex Hamilton, and Dave Ruggio, all friends and musicians decided they would play a few songs. A few songs turned into a few gigs, a few gigs turned into an actual band, and here we are more than 30 years later still going strong. We never intended to be a band, but here we are :)

We have gone through many personnel changes over the years but all who have ever played in this band are part of our family and are welcome to come play and they frequently do.
