"About 4 years ago, I started playing bass. I had been playing guitar and drums previously and to be frank, it was getting a bit boring. I had to expand my horizons. Another reason I wanted to take up bass guitar was many of my biggest influences were bassists rather than guitarists or drummers."
Luc's influences are Billy Sheehan, Flea, Lemmy Kilmister, Paul McCartney, and more. My first bass and amp was a Squire P-Bass that I got for $90 on Craigslist and a Fender Rumble 30 that I got for $20 from a friend. Right away I plugged it in and played so loudly the house shook. At that moment, I was hooked.
"It may seem like it, but no, I don't only play music. I enjoy skateboarding, writing stories, playing sports, mountain biking, surfing, and more. Back to the subject; I really love the role I fill in this band and the people I'm lucky enough to call my brothers."
Matt learned how to play the drums at the age of 7, but didn't really get into it until the age of 12. Drums came naturally to Matt because he had good rhythm and loved the feel and sound of playing drums. He was involved in many other activities but gave most of them up to focus on drumming.
One day, Matt's dad brought home a Yamaha drum set for himself to jam with his older brother Seth , who had just started playing guitar. Seth started playing, "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy. Matt played a beat that didn't quite match well, but it worked. Matt's parents were there to see it and they knew that Matt was getting somewhere. That was the moment that Matt knew he always wanted to be a drummer.
Matt's influences are Green Day, Metallica, AC/DC, The Eagles, The Beatles, Nirvana, Buddy Rich, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guns 'N Roses and many more.
"Outside of music, I write songs, study my favorite drummers, act, make screenplay for music videos, ride my longboard, chill at the pool section at Randalls and attempt to play the xylophone."
Seth started playing guitar at the age of 9. Out of boredom, he started rummaging through the hall closet and came upon his father's old Fender Stratocaster. After uncovering it, he was eager to try it out.
"My dad bought me this instructional DVD on the basics of playing guitar. Once I learned how to play chords and make my own sound, I was hooked."
When he entered his teenage years, Seth took a liking to using his voice to make music as well.
"I had been able to sing since I was little, but never thought much of it. It wasn't until I watched concert videos of James Hetfield, Kurt Cobain, and Brad Nowell that I knew from then on I wanted to multitask. It felt right and I love combining my lyrics with my riffs."
Seth also has an aptitude for the bass guitar and plays a mean triangle. Seth's major influences are: AC/DC, The Offspring, Sublime, Residual Kid, Ugly Kid Joe, Nirvana, Black Flag, The Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies, The Side Eyes, and Cristina The Astonishing. When he's not with the band, he can be found watching "That 70's Show" or at the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark skating the bowls and vert ramps.
There is no doubt that Seth loves what he does best, and there isn't anything that will keep him away from freedom of expression through music.
"I began playing guitar in mid 2013. I grabbed my family's 1969 Yamaha G-60A, watched some videos, and got to work. Everyone will have a hard time at first, but you need to stick with it to become proficient."
