In the fall of 2009 Joe (Prairie du Sac) & Tony (Lodi), who were mutual friends at work, got together to jam as Tony need a drummer on a recording project. Joe fit the bill and an original CD called "Simply 12" was born in 2010, with a few other musician friends helping out. Next came another CD titled "The Little Things in Life".
Later in 2011, we felt we needed a Bass player and we recruited Alex (Madison) and in early 2012 Alex joined the band. He added that bottom end that was badly needed. Alex had been playing in several rock cover bands but was looking for something more creative. Tony's band sounded fun and it was! Now that we were a official four piece band, a few gigs out ensued along with weekly jams at Tony's in Lodi.
However, never being easily satisfied we played with several others hoping to find another original talent for our group. In early 2013, along came Stacey (Waunakee) who joined the band as a singer who helped to complete our vocal sound.
"Monona Bay" was written while playing a private party on a deck overlooking what else but Monona Bay. We decided to record it as a demo and also put it in for the Project M contest and here we are!
