Alex Lasher - Lead Guitarist, Vocals: Alex has spent most of his entire life playing with the Star Wars toys that he collects but somehow he found time to devote to the guitar. From a very young age he saw it as a way to desperately try to be cool enough to make others overlook the obsessive sci fi addiction. He is also a relentless gear junkie that frequently loves to hang out at locally owned Rochester guitar shops constantly exploring the world of sound. Alex is also a raging foodie that wholeheartedly supports Rochester's best eateries as well as experiencing the endless boundaries of Flavor. He currently lives in the city and is an Employment Specialist for The Employment Alliance, an initiative of Heritage Christian Services. Above all else Alex appreciates most spending time with his beautiful wife Faith who is also an accomplished saxophonist and plays with him in the local blue groove band The Deep Blue Dream, and their wonderful 3 year old daughter that is the light of his life.
Allison Stephens - Lead Vocalist: Allison has been working in the Rochester music and theater scene for fifteen years. She dances all the time, even though she has no rhythm, just watch, you'll see. She loves performing for a crowd and can be seen singing on top of any bar (or chair, or anything elevated) that she can get to. She can also hyperextend her knees and elbows, beat most people thumb-wrestling, cartwheel on command and has excellent Super Mario Galaxy skills. She desires a rare and majestic unicorn, chocolate to have no calories and world peace.
