Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

We have many different influences, most in the genre of Rock, such as nirvana Guns and Roses, but we’ve even been influenced by older country artists as well such as , Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr and Ronnie Milsap Why, because its what we like.

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?

DONT DO IT!!!! :), Naw , its tough tho. You’ve always had to put in the time but it seems to be tougher these days in alot of aspects that weren’t as tough before. Such as the amount of money to be made is somewhat less than before and thats fine just dont expect to be a multi millionaire and you’d be alright.

Touring is definitely tough as well not alot of people can eat the same sandwich for a month! ! 🙂

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?

we weren’t given alot of advice, unfortunately we really didnt know anyone in the industry when we moved to Dallas area so we got taken for lots of rides, but still thats how u learn. Ive shared some advice with others that im sure they wished they’d listened to

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?

definitely have had some awesome ones and some bad ones , the awesome ones are generally filled with people and they’re all singing the songs but nothing really specific without divulging some graphic information 🙂

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?

Personally I love drag racing and more specifically 1/8th mile track, I have a truck I like to race and also have some friends with actual fast cars that are fun to be apart of as well

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

67317_10151527046758582_382955774_nIts definitely weird, not near as many bands pushing to get thru and venues are drying up, so its a definite chang, hopefully its just a phase , but who knows

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?

well if u ever get to look at a “contract” from those folks run unless u want to be a famous , poor, puppet


What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads?

I dont really think there’s much to be done about it, that genie is out of the bottle. Bout all I think we can do is embrace it and hope those folks come to shows.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.

I am a idiot (Tim)

Shea dances real well

And Mat is Shelley’s new boyfriend (sick in the head)

Hypothetical situation. You’re on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the survivors… Which one and why?

Maryann im into the girl next door type

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it

When I was young I found a record player of my parents, so one day I was at the pawn shop and saw “appetite for destruction” on vinyl and remembered my older brother said it was awesome, so 5 $ bought my first record! ! So yeah I know 🙂

You’re marooned on an island with Justin Bieber. Do you choke him out the first night in his sleep or what?

Naw im afraid im a talkin kind of person so I figure someone’s better than nothing to talk to

What is your opinion of Miley Cyrus?418765_10151133121653582_1985904658_n

She’s obviously talented like her or not, its a shame to me that she’s surrounded by label and management folks that encourage her demise for a spectacle to sell records

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip synching or real vocals?

Backing tracks to me are a joke , no band should do this

 Who, or what, is the next big thing?

Honestly who knows, hopefully we are 🙂

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…

Beatles truthfully

Confession time. Share a secret about yourself.

I love people, but I really enjoy kind of keeping to myself I’m not shy I just like to observe people

Favorite movie of all time and why.

The aviator I really like the cinematography it just has a real feel for the depiction of the time I think it’s pretty awesome Howard Hughes tells the US government to kiss his ass more or less

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

We are beginning to tour this summer and are looking forward to seeing is many fans as we can so please if you see we’re making it to your town come out and see us you won’t regret it
