OE-2-KB began as a band of brothers — Stephen & Rusty. They got kicked out of karaoke and had to grow up into their own group … and learn to play nice with others, embracing the talents of Eddie Angell, Dave Hankla, Colette Oldham, and Theodora. OE-2-KB grew quickly from being part of the party to being THE PARTY!

fatcatcus (39K) Fat Cactus was formed by two former members of Out of Hand. Jeremy King is the soulful front man with a raspy edge that sets him apart from other singers and saxophonists. Jeremy fronted & booked the bar band powerhouse Out of Hand for almost 10 years, playing roughly 300 shows per year. Jeremy has played in various blues/rock bands since he was a teenager. While Jeremy was with OOH, he asked guitarist & vocalist Bert Mingea to join, which was proven to be a drastic improvement in comparison to the original lineup.

Jeremy & Bert were already the total package to front just about any band they wanted to. Bert is a very accomplished guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. He has a very refined, smooth voice and a face melting guitar style that screams blues & rock with some jazz influence. Bert has played with bands such as Out of Hand, The Druids, Co-alition, Bay Street, Jim Essery Band, and many more.
