The band started in June of 2010 when Eric made the irresponsible decision to move up to Seattle to play in a band with somebody that he hardly knew anything about.
Ike had recorded Eric’s solo album for his college class a couple of years earlier when he came up to the visit one of their mutual friends. One of the days, of the 4 day session that was booked in the studio, was canceled due to a scheduling error. In that one day, Ike invited Eric to come over to his house where they jammed for a little while. Eric was so impressed by this that he invited Ike to come visit him in California to play a one-time show in Sacramento. After the success of that pay-to-play bullshit (Eric was new to the whole playing in public thing) they made plans to play together again.
Flash forward to June of 2010, and Eric had moved up to Seattle, making the daydream a reality. Keep in mind that before this, the only interaction that they had was the recording session, and the one California show. It was a little weird.
The band played as a duo from the beginning until Jason made his debut appearance on Friday, April 13th, 2012 as the permanent bassist.
The first album, Short Bus Ruckus, was released on December 15th 2012.
Under a bridge, Ike got his start playing pots and pans for homeless people that paid him by not giving him a shiv in the rib and letting him eat their scraps.
Eric was raised by squirrels and lived in the garden section of his local elementary school for the first 20 years of his life, hidden from view by an overgrowth of blackberries. He learned piano by knocking on the skulls of dead raccoons that he had collected and arranged by pitch. After being evicted, and having nowhere else to go, Eric packed up his giant sack of raccoon skulls and headed to the same bridge where Ike was staying.
The two quickly bonded, realizing that if they slept in shifts, the bums would have less opportunity to steal their food. Flash forward a couple of weeks, and they were riding in limos and dating supermodels. That is, until the record company they worked for realized that they weren’t, in fact, Justin Bieber’s backup band side project.
At one fateful show, while Eric and Ike were playing Nickelback covers for food, Jason showed up on a black unicorn with ATV wheels instead of legs and demanded to be included in the band. The sight was so beautiful that Eric cried blood for 3 straight days and Ike was stricken with Alopecia. Present day, they are a melodic, piano-party-rock band that is playing on your local stage. Also, Ike wears a wig.
