A random/ interesting fact about you
Justin - I’m a huge fan of the UFC and have been since I was a kid.  Even trained Muay Thai for a time, or another way of saying that is that I got beat up by professional fighters and paid a monthly fee to do so.
Michael - While in marching band during high school I tripped over a fire hydrant while playing the bass drum. I hit my face on the drum and it knocked me out. I bit through my lip and had to go to the emergency room. Don’t worry I made a full recovery and was back playing bass drum the next day.
Jordan – I have a studio called Jetlag Recordings in Jeffersonville, IN. When I’m not playing with Carrollton I record other bands.
Jeremy - I learned to juggle when I was in jr. high. Those were awkward years.
