Genres: Alternative, Metal, Rock

As many around the world watched the devastation of Hurricane Katrina prepare to rip through New Orleans in 2005, childhood friends Brett Bilquist and RJ Reynolds packed their things fearing it might be their last good look a the only home they had known. In an odd series of events, the pair would turn up in Las Vegas, a town a world away from NOLA. With little experience in their new city and even fewer friends, the pair sought out new relationships through music. It wasn’t long before fellow high school musicians Zach Adams, Mike Villones and Brandon Jones would join them, forming a five piece band determined to bring rock back to the all ages crowd often overlooked in the sea of 21 and over venues that dominate their newly christened hometown.
