    The Bumbs began when Merc convinced his friends to drop out of school, quit their jobs and play in a rock and roll band with him. Their sound is vintage urban buskin' blues, polished to a soulful sheen and cheery smile by a handful of disgruntled and tongue-in-cheek millennial sky grazers.

    Eli had been studying visual arts at UNT and was only a freshman, so he was chill with that. He'd grown up down the hall from Merc and had made music with him since babehood; it made sense to hang around and see what went down.

    Zach was selling garage doors and was quickly becoming renown for his caffeinated negotiation tactics, but decided to pursue his true life goal of becoming Keef Richards Hendrix IV. He and Merc had known each other since high school Biology, when they'd shoved textbooks down each others pants and talked the merits of 60's blues bliss. It wasn't a hard decision to leave it all behind for rock n roll...

    Cap'n John had been slaving away makin' burgers in Nashville for a couple years, but in his spare time he played drums for some Nashville bands and led a small group of political banditos he called "Las Pequeñas Cosas Rojas". They called him Cap'n John. He met Merc rollin' a stoney and the two quickly formed a jam bond. It wasn't long before he was bumbin' down to TX to join up with the rest of the crew...

    After a couple weeks in TX the boys were kicked out of their residency for bein' too rock n roll. So they made their way back to Nashville.

    All was for the best though because Zach met up with Kevin at his underpaid job makin' tacos on Broadway. After a few weeks bumbin', the curse took hold and Kevin lost his job, fully completing his initation into the Bumbs. He was dubbed Maraca Jesus on account of his inhuman auxiliary talents and long flowing hair.

    Lastly, came Brandon. Before Brandon lost his job as a professional milkshake maker he made the acquaintance of John, who was flippin burgers at the same joint. Once The Bumbs returned to Nashville they dug Brandon out of the waste bin behind Phat Bites and had him play some shows opening for them. The Bumbs quickly saw Brandon's guitar talents and added him to the repertoire.

    As for Merc, well nobody knows much about him other than he's one lazy street rat...

    And now, you have it, The Mostly Unedited and Ramblin' History of The Bumbs.
