And a good time was had by all.


MunkyDust factoids... (A little background on the band)
MunkyDust was formed in the summer of 1997, after Matt Kennedy left the Todd Lilje/Jon Leinwand/Jeff West band as drummer. A reluctant Kennedy joined MunkyDust after about a year of pestering from Tripp. The band's first ever playing together as a group was on August 30, 1997 with Rick Loftus' band, "Bluesplotation", including Leo Viche and Andy Jarms. (On a personal note from the author of this web page, Matt Kennedy, I would like to say that meeting Matt Carpenter and Brady Willard was like meeting a distant relative. You just don't know what to say, and you think that if you do it will make you sound like the biggest moron if you say anything wrong.)
The band's history did go well before that, though. Kennedy met with Tripp in 1995 in Human Biology, but others met years earlier. Joe Smith is a sellout and Matt Carpenter went to Tucson High School for a year, selling out the band during his sophomore year, but those have little relevance, so keep reading...
Lastly, are some extra things we would like to tell you...
