Theory was a hybrid group of musicians that came together after Valla Dia let the sunset.  Once we auditioned and found the right vocalist, it was time to get to work. Theory worked day and night to groom the song list which consisted of popular hard rock covers and original compositions.

It wasn't too long before agencies came sniffing around to see what all the hype was about. We decided on MUS-ART Corp to represent us, and they decided that the band needed to be playing the large clubs, and immediately put us on tour. The next two years were the very best of years. Big hair girls with tights, miniskirts and heels were not in short supply!

We lost track of Scott, but I am sure he is still out there singing his heart out.  All of the other members (Still close friends) are in current projects.
