Story behind your band/artist name: 

--We needed a name. One of us took an hour to brainstorm about 20 names. About 60% of those names turned out to be taken. The remainder were sent to two other original band members, who both independently picked the same name. We took that as a sign.

Band Members: 

--Scott McKnight, Bill Williams, Arch Alcantara, Jim Faris, and Steve Woehrle

What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : 

--Band members live in Rockville, Silver Spring, Alexandria, and NEDC. We rehearse in Silver Spring.

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area:

--2) DC bands that we've played with include: Last Train Home, Kevin Johnson and the Linemen, The Neighbors, and Naughty Pine.

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: 

--We play in different configurations, based on the show. Anywhere from two pieces to five. Acoustic to full-on electric. We primarily play originals in different styles, but have played tribute shows and have a lot of old covers in our list as well. Covers tend to be oddball and often played in new ways. "Acoustic, Electric, Eclectic." That's us.
