Brief Member Bios:

Mike:
As the main contributer of the songwriting for the first Leeside album, "Cosmic Chill Factor", it's completion has been a long awaited event for Mike. Give Mike an acoustic Guitar and he'll play for you a whole smorgasbord of original songs he has mastered. Along with BR, Mike is considered the founding member of The Leeside.

Zach:
Maturing rapidly on guitar, Zach has shown tremendous devotion to his musical development. Zach grew up in Florida and started playing guitar about 7 years ago. He joined The Leeside (making it a 4-piece), and with surprising speed had all the songs down packed. He even contributed to the writing process on the first album by writing all the music for the song "Crooked Path".

JASON JONES.. one hell of a bass player, plays guitar awswome,has experience and hass been jamming for years. Has great equipment and loads of booking experience....

BR:
Holding a large repertoire of musical experience, playing gigs is not a new thing for BR{AFTER 15 YEARS}. Many influences make up BR's very energetic style. He's absorbed bits and pieces of Black Flag, The Ramones, Pennywise and even such classics as Led Zepplin and the Jimi Hendrix Experience. He draws his energy and technical skills from his 15 years of drumming experience.
