Learning from the best watsonville has to offer (Mrs. Camacho) the two brothers Pat and Dan were classically trained by high school. Dan was first to learn classical percussion (Musician of the Year 1996 Scholarship to UOP) and Pat soon followed. After this brother gained prowess on the drum kit, Dan then switched to guitar in attempt to find a voice that could express himself. After years of playing cover songs the two had dissected rock and metal and began to combine the elements of their favorite bands to create their own style. They now write and perform their own music.
Dan has a solo project call BuilderBeats which can be found on myspace music BuilderBeats
