With other previous projects done separtely, we've played hundreds of gigs with different groups.

We rehearse in a well-equipped home studio. Drums, keys, and vocals are miked, and tracks are available for other instruments into and Alesis Studio32 board, through a MOTU 896HD and into a Mac Powerbook G4 running DP4.5 via FireWire. We have the 'tape running' for all of our rehearsals and review via Mackie Studio monitors.
