Released first full length album, "Another Day at the Somersault Factory," in April of 2009.



Rich Neier, Bass, Vocals
Often compared to the likes of Geddy Lee (ok, so its usually for the way he throws back Canadian beer and hangs out in the North Woods), Rich brings his over 15 years of gigging and songwriting to the band, while still maintaining a happy puppy devotion to his craft.

Erik Olson, Keys, Vocals
The man who makes the golf clubs (sheet music) work so that the rest of the band doesnt have to think - which is a good thing, since his is the best mind of the bunch. Eriks influences go back as far as Beethoven and track forward to Porcupine Tree. Betcha cant wait to hear how THAT sounds!

Larry Crawford, Drums, Vocals
Larry is a bald-headed bundle of energy that makes Animal the Muppet look tame in comparison. A must-see powerhouse of sound.!

Juliann Salinas, Rhythm Guitar, Vocals
Once told that she was completely folked up, (at least thats what she thinks he said) Juliann now puts her story and soapbox-stance songs to da boyz rocked-up riffs.!

Pete Rosenberg, Lead Guitar, Vocals
With a voice that could make both Barry White and Freddy Mercury jealous, and licks that Hendrix would die for (oh, wait) Pete writes, sings, leads and weaves a head-spinning myriad of tunes!
