Running Violet plays 2011 but thinks 1964." In late 2010, guitarist Peter Balaz and bassist Ben Muller formed a band with drummer Brad Connor, and the trio recruited their first serious frontman. After 2 weeks of rehearsing together, creative differences forced the group to disband. After a period of musical absence Peter called up Brad and they came to the agreement that they would start a new band together. After one rehearsal, it was obvious the two had the chemistry and the dedication to make a great band work. After a long search for their singer, a 19 year old Alessandro Marin replied to a posting on Craigslist. After a jaw dropping audition, it was undeniable that they had found the right voice for the band. The missing ingredient to the meal was the drive of 4 four strings, and Ben again, answered the call. The birth of Running Violet (a band name Brad randomly arrived at during class) was earth shaking and something God should have prevented.
