They have also been part of the California Youth Conservatory's productions of Rent and Spring Awakening. The lead guitarist has won many awards and has even made it to the finals of Guitar Center's King of the Blues competition. The bass player has been musical director for shows such as Rent and is a part of the SCPA multi-award winning Jazz Combo, along with the lead guitarist.
