If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? A hula-hoop. Because the fun never ends, and if it does you can just pick it up and start hoopin’ again.

How do you keep it fresh? By learning new material and buying new toys.

Where’d the name come from: We avoid this question at all costs. The story is simply not interesting. If you ask, we will lie to you.

Home base: Colorado – the whole state. We’ve lived in Denver, Boulder and the Vail Valley.

Type of music: Improvisational rock. Meaning we will rock you, a different way every time.

If your music were a tangible item, what would it be, and why? A submarine. Long, hard and it’ll blow you away.

Why do people love ya? We provide a place where people can forget about whatever ails them but also not feel like they have to dress a certain way or be part of a certain “scene.” Of course, people will refer to us as a jam band, but that’s always been a label, which just means a band that provides a good time for people.

How do you keep it fresh? Never, ever playing the same set list twice.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve done/weirdest experience? Here’s one you can actually print. We ran out of gas on the top of Kebler Pass and coasted all the way to Crested Butte. As we pulled into town, late for the gig at this point, we ran what must have been a dozen stop signs and just before rolling to a stop, a gas station appeared on the right. We had just enough momentum to coast in. Perfect.
