The band was formed in 2008 by Carlos Rodriguez and Zachary Coleheavily, both of whom were influenced by early 1970's British blues-rock, usually known as "arena rock." As a result, Carlos says the band's music conveys the feeling of being at "your 1st Sports Arena show; the excitement of seeing your heroes performing live."
