Local band celebrates release of first single

The group members said the experience of being in a band together also brought them closer as friends. The members had attended school together but didn’t run in the same social circles.

“It connected us,” said Bogaert.

It turns out that the rock and roll lifestyle isn’t always glamorous. The band admits that they’ve had their share of on-stage problems.

McFarland was once stung in the leg by a wasp mid-song, but kept his cool and turned the flinch into a cool rock pose.

Haddock has had his instrument go out of tune during songs and Bogaert has battled with his drum stool slowly lowering itself throughout the course of one of their sets.

The band’s favorite part of playing live shows? Shattering the crowd’s expectations of what 11 and 12-year-olds can do.

“People don’t think we can actually play,” said McFarland. “At the last church we played, I saw mouths drop.”
