In the mid- to late-80s, a band from Billings, Montana changed my life. I’d sneak into the bars and sit with the sound engineers to watch in awe as this phenomenal band brought ridiculously brilliant originals and impeccable covers of the greatest rock and roll songs to a sleepy little Montana college town. They left The Cat’s Paw in shambles, every girl in town panting, every local musician wishing they were a part of something so magical. Over 35 years later, I’ve got them ALL together for a live reunion (well, chat)! Come hang out with Chris Fahnlander, Art Eichele, Frank Wilson, Bryan Oakley and James Sloan live!

Luke is one of those people that instantly makes you feel welcomed. He’s one of the most intuitive musicians I’ve ever been in the band with – we’ve been like brothers for over 30 years! A phenomenal bassist, Luke also possesses immense talent in graphic design and visual arts. He’s the Art Director for Montana Outdoors Magazine, the “go to” art designer for political campaigns in Montana, and shares his passion for creative design in all mediums with anyone who’ll listen. Our conversation on Thursday will, without any doubt, inspire you – Luke embodies creativity and progress. I love this man, and would bet you will to (if you don’t already). Come listen in!

Rob is one of the first players I ever toured with. He’s a true Montanan, but has the wanderlust spirit, taking him across the globe to soak up culture from each stop along the way. We’ve got some hilarious history together, and I love this man’s heart. Listen in on our conversation to find out why.
