pop/rock/alternative
The band formed in 1996 with the line-up of Hefley, Sorbo, Thayer and Johnson. After Thayer left the band to, as they put it, "pursue real life", the other three continued out as a folk rock trio, putting out a couple of small releases that didn't attract much attention. In 1998, the band played a benefit concert for tornado victims in Northern Iowa. It was there that they met Patrick Fleming. Fleming's talent with the guitar and wild, charismatic stage presence proved to be just what the band was looking for and invited him to join. He eventually did in 1999. Using money Fleming inherited from his grandmother, the band purchased studio equipment and formed BiFi Records. The label operated inside a small home in residential Ames that would become affectionately known as "The BiFi House". It was on this label that they released Chords a Friend Suggested, which would become legendary in the Ames music scene. Word of mouth, as well as a presence in local music shops, combined with airplay on the local college station, KURE, gained the band a strong following.
