Bio and Band Stories:

When I first moved to Atlanta, I joined this band from called the Moody Dudes. One of our first gigs was in Winston Salem, NC playing at a wedding for a couple who went to summer camp with the guys in the band. On our break, we were hanging around the pool and the bride all of a sudden took off ALL of her clothes and jumped in the pool. This started a chain reaction and pretty soon everyone (but me) was naked and swimming in the pool. Being a sheltered boy from Utah, I froze in my tracks and couldn't believe what I was seeing. To this day I still regret not jumping in.
