They chose the name All Sixes and Sevens, worked hard together and began writing their own music and lyrics. They played at school dances, community events, local cafes, a few fundraisers, and participated in a few local band competitions. They had very limited funds for equipment, but still managed to make some great music and establish a modest local fan base. During their senior year of high school they had a professional recording made of their original compositions, resulting in their first album, Flipside.
Almost eight months ago Shane left on a two year mission to Romania, and the band began a two year break. The other band members are attending college, and all look forward to more music together in the future. Sometimes when I am missing Shane I listen to that CD just to hear his voice and music filling my house again.

Thanks for the great music guys!
If you are already a fan, which song is your favorite? Post it in the comments section, and I can spotlight it in a future post.
