Nicole and Eric are married and live in Ste. Genevieve where Eric is the police chief. Leach and King both live in Fredericktown. Leach is a pharmacist and King is a medical compounder.
The group formed about three years ago. They met through the music team at their church, Meadow Heights in Fredericktown. Each has been playing music for many years. Eric’s father, Stormy Bennett, was a professional musician most of Eric’s childhood and still plays music today as a hobby. Nicole’s mom is a music teacher. Jeremy’s dad played in a family gospel group. Cory is a classicly-trained pianist.
The band currently plays mostly at wineries with their play list ranging from Etta James to Script and Pearl Jam to Lady Antebellum.
