Ryan McAnany:

Los Angeles, California
Former Bands:
Junction 8, Distant Fathers
"This band gets me excited as the first time I saw the breast on a young red-headed woman in the back of one of those highly educational magazines. Like Barton Fink, we strive to bring our music to the common folk and to relieve them of the daily grind, put the beat in their feet, and get their asses out of their seat. We wanna bring back American Music, such as Blues, Soul, Country (Not the Billy Ray Cyrus country, but the low-down shuffle of Hank Williams Sr. and Gram Parsons)."

Wade Maurer:

Lincoln, Nebraska (or thereabouts)
Former Bands:
The Violators, The Ripcords, The Joads
"Kiss and AC/DC- What else is there? One day, this lady came up and said she'd kick my ass if we didn't play any Country-Western. Hell, we'll play Country (loudly) - now buy me a Pete's Wicked Ale!"

John "The Worm" Kuhlken:

San Diego, California
Former Bands:
"I can't remember anything before Deep in the Shed"
"I like Lucky Beer! I wear boxers sometimes. I'm pretty simple, in lifestyle and in music"
