"We were playing together in a tour road version of the Mar-Keys, we were the rhythm section. One night we were playing a gig in Mississippi at a college. We were the only part of the band that showed up. They expected a performance and we gave them one. On the way home we thought we would put together our own band. We rehearsed for about 6 months and started playing teen clubs like the Roaring 60's, in Memphis.
