Tony met Spencer and Hillery during a survey course on Elizabethan era funeral dirges at the Oxnard Conservatory of Music and Dance during the Spring of 2004 when most (if not all) of them were on academic probation. Before Tony met them, Hillery and Spencer were certain that they were cousins. However, Tony had some documents proving that he was in fact Spencer's cousin and that Hillery was just some random person that ended up at every family reunion his family had ever held by accident. Hillery found this new evidence difficult to swallow, but Tony had the proof, and Hillery didn't dare contest it. Aaron and Thomas shared a dorm room down the hall from where Spencer was staying. While passing their room every morning on the way to class, Spencer could hear Aaron and Thomas concocting a new and infectious blend of afro-punk beats and rhythms. Spencer realized that Tony kind of had an afro at the time, so it only seemed natural that he recruit Aaron, Thomas, Hillery and Tony to create the ultimate party band to rawk every valley this side of Oxnard. And that's how they became Elizabethan Report.
