The unique band formed in 2004 out of Seattle when vocalist Steven Douglas, guitarists Ted Norris and Kenny Van Dkyke, drummer Cory Olsen and bassist Fraser Midstokke fused together to jam. They found the perfect fit with each other and released their first album in 2005. The band’s high-energy rock was so perfect for the motorcycle music audience that in 2007 a local motorcycle dealer, Sound Harley-Davidson, invited them to participate in a Battle of the Bands. The ultimate prize for the contest was a chance to perform at the Bufflalo Chip’s August music festival during the annual Sturgis motorcycle rally. Destined for Sturgis, the band went on to win the battle and has since played at the August music festival many times.
Midstokke released their second album in 2009 followed by their third rocking album in 2011, giving people more party-like energy to get up and rock!
