When I was living in Chicago, my friends and I formed a folk-rock mash-up coverband named Cold Turkey and the Fruitcakes. We recorded two albums in our basement studio, yes one is a Christmas album. We were really going for that "back shelf at Goodwill" vibe.

The Real Quaid started as an Ames Iowa college band. We played frequently in Ames, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, and the Quad Cities. The glory days. We still play sometimes. When we can.
