Story:
Born outside of Detroit and Raised by a Rock n’ Roll DJ father and classically trained mother, Frontman/namesake Gooding saw KISS at Age 4, heard Queen’s “Flash Gordon” soundtrack, and the die was cast forever. G moved to Wichita at age 12 with his mom and sister, and hid in his bedroom imitating Jimi Hendrix, Prince and Yngwie Malmsteen. He soon met drummer/brother in arms Jesse Rich, they cut their horrendous mullets, listened to as many records as they could, won their talent show and they have played together ever since. G has lived all over the country, recorded and produced over 200 records, written over 2000 songs, had music in countless film and tv shows, but has yet to fulfill his dream of giving Willie Nelson a hug.

G’s dad was on the FBI’s subversive list for protesting the Vietnam war, worked with Wolfman Jack, hung with Hell’s Angels and did enough drugs to kill a horse. This may explain why Gooding’s only way to rebel was to be a square

Story:
Jesse “Rich” Reichenberger was raised a block from the Arkansas river by his Mom-Peggy, Dad-Randy, and a great wealth of family and friends. Jesse first took to the drums in his bedroom at 1939 N. Gow around age 8, where he played to every record he held. He carefully limited his public appearance within those four walls until meeting Gooding in the schoolyard of Marshall Jr. High where they, as the Tremendous Two (name suggested and hesitantly agreed to on the spot) took 1st place in their talent show. That night would be the first of what is now over 2000 shows performed together in several different line-ups, across a half-a-million miles and counting.
