Five Year Mission – Shore Leave
This is one great 5 man band. Lumpy was lucky enough to catch up with them in this year at Gen Con 2014 and can’t wait to see the Gen Con regulars again next year.
The members of the band are:
Noah Butler – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Andy Fark – Percussion/Songwriter
Patrick O’Connor – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Mike Rittenhouse – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
Chris Spurgin – Guitar/Bass/Keys/Vocals/Songwriter
They are all veterans of the Indianapolis music scene. In fact, one of the thrills of the Gen Con was that you could also catch the various members as members of other bands performing. It is clear that these are serious musicians who are the same about Star Trek. I only wish that they would decide to do a song of every Star Trek episode period and not just the original series. It is that hard to get enough of their rocking music.
They shared a video on Facebook, I thought you might enjoy it enough to check them out more at the links after the video.
