What started as a garage band has today grown into an entrepreneurial pursuit to create a rock 'n roll band brand company & foundation.
The band began with a notebook full of poems and the spirit of creating a project dedicated to music, being both artistic and commercially viable. After recording our first album, LOBSTERS! - we have performed around the Twin Cities metro area at venues including: 7th Street Entry/First Avenue, The Fine Line, Trocaderos Nightclub, The Rock and many other local venues.
We have also performed at the Florida Music Festival - International Pop Overthrow Chicago - Millennium Music Conference Harrisburg, PA - Thursday's on 1st Festival Rochester, MN - As well as others.
Overall, our mission is to book performances, helping grow our online fan base as well as to continue developing our brand and sound. We seek to be considered for booking. Please browse our materials and feel free to contact us with any questions and/or offers. - email@example.com

Dodge is currently in his last semester before graduating from the University of St. Thomas as an entrepreneur major. Tom Delonge, an established musician, encouraged him to follow his passions and become a musician.
"I was at a gym in Minnesota and he was there with Travis [Barker] working out. I asked him for five minutes to ask some questions. I asked "should I become a musician?" He asked "how bad do you want it? Are you willing to suffer?" I said "yes, I want it more than family, more than friends." At that time I was still going to school and deciding what to do. It was a turning point that helped me to make a decision."
It didn't seem like Dodge suffered during his performance as he engaged the crowd throughout the performance, dedicated a song to military reserves, and even singled out an audience member before he played his single: "Egyptian Princess Eyes." "This one is for you," said Dodge, 22.
The only downside to the performance was that Dodge shared a time slot with Anberlin who played on center stage during the Florida Music Festival and may have lost some of his audience. Maybe that is what Delonge meant by 'suffering.'
His latest album was "Lobsters!"
