We are from Chicago. Steve Gillis is the former drummer for Filter and he is the most ass kicking drummer in Chicago. He is also a tough-guy. Vijay Tellis-Nayack is the baby of the band. He plays keyboards and sitar. He is one sentence away having a PhD in rockology. Some would call him a boy genius, but that would be a stretch. Scott Tipping is our guitarist. He's the funny one. He is prone to outbursts. He plays with Backyard Tire Fire. I would say Shawn Sommer plays bass, but that would be a gross understatement. He makes sweet, efficient love to the bass. To tell the truth, I am a little worried his head is going to fall off when he plays. Until that time, he will play with the passion of an Irish clog dancer on "So You Think You Can Dance". My name is Billy Dave, I sing and write this stuff. Thanks for stopping by!
