Meet The Band:
Lead guitarist, Grant Hendrix, was born in Columbia, SC and developed an interest in guitar at a very young age. His interest stemmed from hearing his dad play guitar while he was growing up. He began playing guitar around the age of 10. However, during his later years of high school he began to develop himself as a musician and spent a lot of time learning the art of the electric guitar. His biggest influences are Eddie Van Halen of Van Halen, Joe Perry of Aerosmith, and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. His raw, natural talent for shredding and his amazing tone leaves our audience mind blown when they hear and see him play.
Lead singer, Austin Hendrix, was also born in Columbia, SC and is brother to Grant. He's had an interest in music the majority of his life but didn't show it much until more recent years. He has a vocal range and sound that's a blend of great rock singers like Steven Tyler, Robert Plant, Axl Rose, and Ian Gillan. His biggest influences are Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin. His incredible sound and vocal range leaves the crowd beyond impressed.
Bassist, Matthew Shranko, who goes by Shranko, was born in North Canton, Ohio where he first learned to play the saxophone. He started playing the bass guitar at the young age of 15. In high school he played the the euphonium in his high school band and later played the trombone in his college marching band. His biggest influences are Geddy Lee of Rush, John Entwistle of The Who, and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath.

Drummer, Jack Latham, was born and raised in West Columbia, SC. His love for drums began at the age of 3 when he received his first kit. His parents, both 80's metal fans, laid the foundation for his early style of playing. His first concert was Iron Maiden in seventh grade, and then Metallica a month later. His biggest musical influences are Gojira's Mario Duplantier and Metallica's Lars Ulrich. Jack's passion for drums has driven him to learn many different styles and genres. He has done session work for a Nashville artist, played with country artist, Lenny Cooper, and toured regionally for several years with King Nothing, a tribute to Metallica. Jack's love of a "live performance" is easy to see when attending shows he plays. He makes it a priority that the audience has an unforgettable experience and a smile on their face. In his spare time, he enjoys playing the guitar, surfing, and taking care of his pet reptiles.
