Tim - Guitar/Vocals
Tim's musical interest started in grade school when taking piano lessons. He went on to play the trombone in his high school. When he turned 16, his parents gave him the gift of music: his first guitar. That first guitar parlayed into a lifetime love of the instrument. By age 21, Tim was playing the electric guitar and dreaming of forming his own band. Shortly thereafter, he made his dream a reality, starting his first 80’s cover band: Destination Unknown. While in college, looking for "easy credit" classes, he picked up drums along with percussion instruments.
Some of his many influences are Brian Adams, John Mellencamp, Ted Nugent, Lynard Skynard, and Poison along with a country flavor from Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams Jr. and Charlie Daniels. He developed an eclectic taste and enjoys many styles of music.
In early 2009, after a few years away from live performances, Tim joined the now retired Westbound Band. It reignited his interest in entertainment. Westbound, together for more than 28 years, performed with many national acts and were inducted into the Midwest Rock and Country Hall of Fame. During the time Tim played with Westbound they performed with national acts including Ashley Hewitt and Tommy Jennings, Waylon’s younger brother. Westbound was honored to backup Tommy Jennings at the music festival Country Splash June 2009 staring Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney and Miranda Lambert. For Tim, it was an amazing experience.
Currently, Tim performs with a new group called 2 Mile Final. The group performs some of the most popular and hard hitting country music of today. Many of their current influences include Trailer Choir, Josh Thompson, Dierks Bentley and Trent Tomlinson, spattered with some of the classic favorites like Dwight Yoakum, Kentucky Headhunters and Skynard.

 

 
Tony - Guitar/Vocals
Tony’s interest in music started in the grade school band and choir as a trombone player and tenor voice. He was also inspired by his parents. His mom taught him to sing harmony church hymns and influenced him to take a few years of piano lessons. His dad sings perfectly on key even when joking around.
Attending a small school in North Dakota, a class of 32 students and a small music department indirectly presented many opportunities for Tony. The high school pep band needed a drummer so Tony picked up the sticks and started banging away. A local band Dakota Road, whose members were Tony's parents' age, needed a drummer, heard Tony play at a high school basketball game and picked him up.
Making music on stage at VFWs, weddings and street dances at 16 years old lit a fire for performing music and began Tony's interest in playing guitar. Tony started out on his mom’s old Sears catalog six string. He learned chords and picked out, by ear, his favorite 80s rock and country songs. At age 17 Tony and some guys from school started their own band called The XPress.
His talents enabled him the opportunity to play and sing in several different groups over the years. He has performed with members of Kid Hollywood, The Johnny Holmes Band, and others. Some of his biggest musical influences growing up were, Guns n Roses, Poison, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Hank Williams Jr., Travis Tritt, Eagles, and Alabama.
 
Mitch - Drums
At 12 years old, Mitch received his first drum set; that gift put a beat in his heart and set the rhythm for his music career. When his middle school band teacher refused to let him play drums in the school band due to lack of previous experience, Mitch got a few tips from his dad and set out to learn on his own. By age 14, Mitch was playing live on stage for more than 100 fans. We can only imagine what Mitch wanted to tell his band teacher to do with his drum sticks and "lack of experience." Mitch also plays guitar and has an ear for music. His musical influences are Green Day, Foo Fighters, The Who, Kenny Chesney and more.
