The first few years Joel and Lance were together they had auditioned various drummers and bass players, none being satisfactory in the style the two were looking for. However, in early 2003, drummer Mario Silvas auditioned, blowing away all expectations formely possessed by the guitar duo. Mario was added to the ranks immediately bringing un-paralleled style, skill, and song writing abilities to the fold.
Now with the group being a trio, the search for a bass player ensued. Unfortunately everyone that auditioned was not near the musical level of the three existing band members. Some applicants would arrive to the audition only owning small practice amps, and one applicant informed Joel over the phone he did not even own a bass guitar! Eventually the group decided to begin auditioning vocalists hoping to have better luck. The first vocalist to audition was Logan Perez hailing from San Marcos, Tx, also the hometown of Lance. Logan put on an impressive vocal display, and showed much creativity from the initial audition. The three band members decided a few days later to cancel all other auditions, and add Logan to the group bringing much musical skill and song writing knowledge along with his unlimited charisma to the band. In addition, it was also discovered he would be capable of taking over duties on bass, thus completing the line up.
