The STORY:

Back when I worked at Knott's Berry Farm I met a truly awesome individual by the name of Mark, aka, Skippy. We connected through Metallica's "Frayed Ends of Sanity" whilst closing up theater one day. Through the years we've connected off and on always trying to get together after I left the park. Eventually this past winter I was able to find a moment to visit.

I gave Mark a ring and asked what he was up to. He said he was looking at bus schedules to get to a studio.
I told him, "Dude, I'll drive you! Just pay me your bus fair for gas"
He said, "bring your gear!". So I grabbed my guitar thinking we may just jam whilst he was auditioning a drummer. Turns out, I was playing with him whilst he was actually auditioning said drummer. I didn't know any of the songs but sort of picked them up as we went along.

After one other time of jamming at the studio with his other guitarist [Zach] I was on my way to his place when he asked, "Hey, if my guitarist [Jeremy] can't do this gig would you be able to cover? We're past the point of cancelling a show." I said of course. The moment I arrived at this place he got a text and said, "Alright, you're in" and we proceeded to go over the bands entire set.

The very next day...Mark sent me a text saying, "So Zach just quit..." and we were down another guitarist.

I got on the phone and called my two buds Don and Derek and told them the situation.
Derek said, "You know, to be honest, I don't know that I'm much of a live guitarist...yet. But if Judgement Day hits and everything is about to crash and burn, I'll be there."
Don was currently sick and wasn't sure.
We had a day with Derek, he was shaky.
A week later Don came in, caught up and BOOM. After only two weeks and 22-some odd songs later, we had our first gig.

Backtracking slightly: Turns out I actually knew most of this band! Zach was new to me but he was the only other person I'd met in the band and I hear Mark talk about the others.
Turns out I knew Jeremy, I had done some shows with him at Knott's.
The first rehearsal I had 'Mike the drummer' walked in and I said, "Decamp?!" he and I did a show together last year. Here's the both of us on stage in Black Comedy directed by Modyman Mike is the one with the grayed out hair. I'm...well, you know.

Our keyboardist was another tech I knew from Knott's. The only one I didn't know in the end was Lex, our singer. I had heard Mark talk about her but had no idea what to expect. The second she walked in the room she had a presence. I thought to myself, 'No, is this her? We can't be THAT lucky...' and we are :)

At this moment we've had 4 shows and 3 more booked. We're working on a demo and rockin' on stage is...well, it's rockin! :headbang:

Of my plans for 2014 a band wasn't really penned in anywhere, but I have to say it's one of the biggest things I look forward to doing, this group really has it going when we play together, there's a wonderful energy I get nowhere else. I can't wait for my next rehearsal.

Thanks for reading everyone. And if ever we're in your neck of the woods, I would love to see you out in the crowd.

You know how you can recall being really little? And it's not really a full memory, just sort of a recollection of people towering over you and couches being fortresses you could scale, perhaps even being afraid of falling from a seat? ...I've been drawing before that. And ever since, it's just sort of stuck.

Then came instruments, trombone in elementary, keyboard in jr. high, guitar declaring itself king of the hill in high school, harmonica on my own time, bass and drums whenever I can get my hands on them...I guess singing was around since I could recognize a song as a toddler.
:headbang:
MUSIC makes the world go round, it's a part of all of us, no matter what specific sounds we choose to listen to. :horns:

:spotlight-left: :spotlight-right:
ACTING...you see your older brother in a high school show when you're a few years old, and then subconsciously you're catapulted into a world you never knew would keep you THIS busy what with performing, directing, training and designing all over the place nowadays just so you can do what you love and find a way to feed yourself.

For the record, I still have a hard time looking at myself on screen :film:...plus I sound silly.

:painter:
Painting has always sort of been around since they said, "you can draw...help us out with this!"
"...but...I...don't paint..."
"Come on!" :sprint:
Before you know it, you're the one doing all the scenic art stuff for your shows. Nowadays I love getting work where scenic design and painting are involved.

:camera:
Photography, my philosophy is shoot first ask questions later :firelite-photo:...I just need to get a new camera (miss you Olympus)

Costuming, it started as a tech class and turned into a line of work. And yet even before that I remember looking at costumes on screen and thinking "I want THAT costume! (and not the 'cheap' version you can buy localy in town)". Thus, the costumer in me was born.

What can I say? No matter how many ventures I take on, I truly feel i'm an artist at heart, I dig it, it's pure magic! What's better than sharing a little bit of magic?

Keep on keepin' on fellow Deviants!

Oh...and I like Milk...:milk:...and Batman...:batman:...wow, they actualy have these? Huh...go figure!
