It all started with a Goodwill find. We advise, however, that you don’t try what followed at home.

“We were really into shows like ‘Jackass’ and ‘Viva La Bam,’ skatepark life, because growing up here in Cheyenne, there was nothing else to do,” said guitarist and backup vocalist Nate Coleman. “We found a wheelchair at Goodwill and would do everything from dragging it behind a car with one of us in it to pushing each other into bushes in it.”
