Give us a little bio of the band and you guys as individual.

We are a pop duo from Philadelphia, PA. It all started when we posted our first cover of Problem by Ariana Grande in May 2014 and started playing shows, doing weekly covers and recording our music.
Where did you get the band name from?

We wanted the name to represent what we are all about. The idea of letting go and just having a good time.
Who does what in the band?
I.e. who does the vocals, who plays what, who writes the songs

Johnny plays ukulele and sings and Bruce plays guitar and sings.  We both co-write almost all of our songs.
Are You Signed?

We are currently free agents 😉
What instruments do you play?

We both play a little bit of everything (drums, bass, guitar, piano, and a ton of others)
How did the band come about/how did you guys meet?

We met when our old bands played shows together back in 2008.  Eventually Bruce recorded Johnny’s band and we just had a blast working together.  After our bands had broken up we decided to start a new band together and the rest is history 🙂

It can come from anything.  Basically, anything that we experience from day to day can turn into a song.
