The name came from Emi”ly” and Kel”ly” who performed with me the first show. Pronounced L-Y’s which later became the Ly’s (pronounced “lies”). I like a good woman behind me hyping me and singing back up and allowing me to take breaks during dances. What started off as tricked friends became art school kids to actual musicians to whoever was willing to get in the suit and show up. These ones who came on tour did alot of heavy loading and unloading, ate vegan, danced with all they’re might and looked amazing in spandex.
We grew up together. Her mom would buy us Dairy Queen Blizzards. She’s not a performer she’s a copy store owner. I said would you please get in this outfit and make me hype me in front of a audience. She said “yes.” She performed with me proably 3 times and was in the first music video “Gold Pants"
I saw her on stage with another band behind a drum kit and wanted her for my own. I courted her and wrapped her drums in pink and swept her off to tour. She only came out for one tour but she was my first live insterment player and started a trend that will live on forever.
There is no other. He could drum, he could lift, he could charm. When we sought out a new drummer I would have never guessed a hairy man born in Altoona would do the trick. He would later book our shows and stretched out his costumes in ways mother never designed for. But when he smacked the drums ya’ body pays attention.
She was playing horn for another band and she can fiddle with a guitar quiite well. We had her play bass for a few shows. She decided to take her gifts to a well paying engineering job so we lost her. However we continue to as and once in a while will take up the call. No promo photos were ever taken of her. She is always to busy.
She took the tour job to kill some time before she’d move away and get married to a hunk. She was the merchendice table person for part of the show then would run back and hit the finale with the spark of 1,000 fireworks. You could only see her arms on stage because her beauty was to much for the audience.
When she was brought on tour she had never performed before. But it was like releaseing a flamingo from cage cause she started stomping and crushed with her beauty. Currently in many other musical projects. But we had her first.
