Jerel and Casey have been friends since their sophomore year of college at Santa Clara University. With other housemates, Alex Lasnik, Hans Krippaehne, and drummers from Scotty Carbombs, Ben Vickious, and Toddy Sticks, they formed the band ALL MEN FUNK. Since graduating school and the band dispersing to all areas of the country, Casey and Jerel have been working on music with many close friends as contributors. Casey is a Denver, CO native mostly influenced by Hip-Hop and has always been an Emcee, but has expanded his music taste and love since meeting his friends at school. Jerel is from South Lake Tahoe, NV and has always been an incredible musician who can literally do it all, but excels as a singer/songwriter with his funky guitar licks. For the last 8 months Jerel and Casey, have been working on a two part album, trying to combine their loves for all types of music, forming the band NEXT DAY FRESH. This album is a mix of acoustic music and electronic. Each song is different from the next, with singing, rapping, wailing guitar licks (feat. Alex Lasnik), and growling electronica, that provides a sound really not heard before. Most importantly they make music for the people they love, and could not do it without the support of the crew and all the amazing friends, family, and supporters.
At the end of the day, they both appreciate music from any genre and care more about making people happy through sound rather than making it big. Music is about the love and the listen, not about the fame. Listen Loud and often.
