Harrison, Alex, Pete, & Ian
The original trio came together while exploring the American West on a cross-country road trip during the summer of 2021. Packed into Harrison’s mom’s Red Kia Telluride, this mix of old and new friends set out on a journey that bonded the group as a band of travelers before they came together as musicians. Fast-forward a year later when they were serendipitously brought back together on the East coast, the trio brought each of their respective instruments into the mix and tapped into the spirit of the open road to reach a new level of musical exploration. Taking inspiration from the grandfather of jam bands and initial bonding passion, the Grateful Dead, the band shares an appreciation for improvisational rock/blues/funk and adds their own new twists to familiar tunes. The original road trip may be over, but the adventure lives on through the music. Oh, and there’s also a bass player named Ian, who is arguably the most talented musician of all of them.
