Is freaking AWESOME!! Randy & I are so happy to have these guys with us. Randy used to be in a punk band called HighSchool Logic, and Danny Reuland (far left) was his drummer, so we brought him onto this project. He's a great drummer and the ladies love him! He's gonna kill me for saying that.... Randy had also played with our bass player - Jeff LeGore, (second from right) in a band called Pretty Sneaky Sis, and Jeff plays in a band called Psychedelic Cowboys with our guitar player, Don Ian (far right). Did that all make sense? Anyway, we're thrilled to be playing with them.

So, to catch you up - here's a little about us... my partner- Randy Dunham- and I met several years ago at Burbank Bar & Grille, he was playing a resident gig there as an acoustic duo with a girl, and I joined him when his partner headed off to Broadway. We began playing together and discovered a mutual love for country music (I'm from Georgia and his family's roots are in Oklahoma), and began writing songs. Just this past fall of '08, we headed to Atlanta to record with Jan Smith, a kickass vocal producer, and recorded a 4 song EP. In February, director Andy Fickman heard us play and asked for a demo- a week later he asked us to write a dance song for him. We did, and he then offered us a role in Disney's Race To Witch Mountain, which he directed. We had a ball on the movie- we recorded 5 songs with producer Jamie Houston, and were also featured in a performance sequence - we are the band in the Honky Tonk Bar...and we got to work with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The movie has opened a lot of doors for us, and we are now playing out at all the LA venues and some outside of LA as well. We've got a lot of things cooking, we're working our tails off, and we're lovin every minute!
