Tie-Dyed Giants formed officially in 2015, though the two core members, Stephen & Corey, have been performing with each other since 2007, when they started their first high school band together.
In 2013 the duo began their early stages of a music career, which could have been accurately described as a paid hobby at the time, booking gigs at local restaurants and cafes for as little as $50 for 3 hrs of music, split between the two of them, but it was a start.
A couple years past, the band eventually grew to 7 members and changed its title from "band" to "collective", since everyone in the band was essentially responsible for their own gigs, but contacted the rest in the collective if the gig called for 2+ members.
After a two years there were some that didn't have the drive for the cover band life anymore and bowed out to pursue other avenues. Now we are a collective 4 members strong, still rehearsing every week together, and the best sounding band in our local area, and the best sounding individual musicians to boot.
