Johnny and Mike met each other while attending college together in 1999 and instantly hit it off musically. They played together in several rock, funk, and jazz projects while living in Allentown, PA over the next few years, and gigged extensively in the Lehigh Valley Area both in groups and as freelance jazz musicians. Mike eventually made his way to New York in 2004, and Johnny moved to Philadelphia in 2005.

Meanwhile, Jeff had been touring the US extensively with his instrumental prog-metal group Dysrhythmia. Coming off the road in 2005 after extensive touring, Jeff settled in the New York area.
