The history
Cheshire Grin, a hard-edged modern rock band from Omaha, Nebraska, was the brainchild of guitarist Pat Bressman and bassist/vocalist Troy Tompkins. Formed in 1995, pat and troy were looking to create a band that could rock hard, sometimes real hard, without losing that killer hook that make listeners love music in the first place. Omaha back then was a tough market dominated by top 40 cover acts and a lack of original music venues. Cheshire Grin decided that the best way to break into the market was by playing new rock covers and mix in their own originals. The road was a tough one at first, and the line up changed a few times, but the band''s line-up was solidified in 1997 when they hooked up with powerhouse drummer Mark Rothermund and guitar/keyboard player Mark Marquez.

In late 1997 Cheshire Grin entered the Motley Crue "Kick Start Your Career" contest through local radio station Z-92 (kezo). The plan was for four bands to battle it out on Halloween night in true rock-n-roll fashion --a battle of the bands! Only this was -the battle of the cover bands. Cheshire Grin stole the show and opened for Motley Crue in February ''98. The band parlayed that chance into becoming the top drawing club band in Omaha, a title which they have held for over 6 years consistently adding new fans to their devoted following. Cheshire Grin was awarded a national sponsorship from Jagermeister, which is distributed by Sydney Frank Importing.

In July 2001, Cheshire Grin played to a sold out crowd numbering in excess of 1500 to release their much-anticipated CD "Cat o'' Nine Tales". This nine song CD that received rave reviews for both its music and production. Recorded at Warehouse Studios with "hot Omaha producer" Jim Homan, Cat o'' Nine Tales would eventually become one of the top sellers in the Omaha market for the year. Three songs from CD received local airplay with the song "Release" receiving consistent airplay on 93.3 (krqc). Cheshire Grin''s music also receives airplay on Z-92''s (kezo) Homegrown Show, and the 100,000-watt blowtorch 89.7 (kiwr) The River, one of the largest college stations in the nation! Cheshire Grin used cyberspace to get their music to the public also when "Big 12 Radio" went online in late 2001. Free downloads of their music have been also available on https://www.tradebit.com, https://www.tradebit.com, https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com and are always a top download. Cheshire has recently received tremendous attention on https://www.tradebit.com for their new releases "let down" and "contagious".

In 2001, Cheshire Grin opened the jagermeister music tour at Moorhead State University in front of the Bloodhound Gang. April 2002 Cheshire opened up the Jagermeister music tour in Denver, Colorado with Drowning Pool, Coal Chamber, 40 Below Summer and Ill Nino. The band was also one of 10 unsigned bands to be part of Cruefest 2002, a salute to the music of Motley Crue. The show was held at the famous Whiskey a Go-Go in Los Angeles California in June 2002. For the third consecutive year, Cheshire Grin has been invited to join another Jagermeister Music Tour, opening for Saliva, Breaking Benjamin, Hed PE, Systematic and Stereo mud in Kansas City, Mo.

The final lineup change occurred in late 2002. Thunderous drummer, Rick Halverson joined the Cheshire team providing a new potency that has added immense strength and energy to an already solid collaboration. Cheshire Grin has recently completed the recording of their follow-up CD "Contagious" which is targeted for a Spring 2003 release.
