In August 2005, the band caught the attention of University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) football coach Chris Ault. The coach liked the title track of the CD, “NEVADATUDE,” and decided he wanted that song to be used for the UNR football team. So, he asked Rick and the guys to go back in the studio and do a re-write of the lyrics to better match the football team.
Today, the band is out playing their music from their last 2 CD’s, cover songs, and writing and playing new songs for their 3rd CD.
