Tell me about one of your first musical memories?

MARCOS: The first time I ever sang to someone was a Backstreet Boys song to get this girl to date me when I was like 7 or 8. Since then I was hooked to performing for people.

PARKS: My family has these big Puerto Rican Christmas Eve parties and live music is always a big part of it and I remember one year getting a Harmonica passed to me and I hit a couple of notes that sounded good and I haven't stopped playing since.

MATTY: I was at my friend's dad's funeral, and they were doing a church service. The drummer didn't show up and they came to me and wanted me to drum and i didn't wanna do it and i kept telling him no, but like his dad had just died so i was like ugh i guess i have to do it, and I just killed it up there. Just me and a church organ at a funeral.
