Band/artist history
Rich and Kyle played together for years in a rock band. Steve played for years with other rock bands, which sometimes included Randy. In 2000, Rich, Kyle and Steve formed a rock band together. Kyle and Steve grew bored, and started playing Irish folk, which is something Steve and Randy used to do together from 1990-92. From out of Steve's distant past came Michael, who bears a remarkable resemblance to Steve. Many rehearsals and much Jameson's later, Kyle and Michael formed the Whiteboys. Not-Quite-White Rich, Pasty-White Randy and White-Liar Steve help when needed.
