Moustache of Sorrow
Rp Wigs started in the beginning of 2007 with guitar player Chris Johnson and bass player Dustin Riley. After several failed band attempts together, the two decided to break it down into basics: write good groove oriented tunes that people can move to. These musical ideas needed to come alive with a strong vocal melody: enter lead singer Korey Zehr. A chance encounter at a party paved the road for a budding musical relationship between the three. With the recruitment of a friend on drums, the early incarnation of Rp Wigs was off the ground. After a handful of well recieved local shows and the release of a three-song demo, the drummer had to quit for personal reasons. During the summer of 2007, Chris received a call that would change the band permanently. After reading their Myspace profile that was searching for a drummer, friend and fellow guitar player Cory Johnston from Indianapolis, Indiana band Shine Somber, offered his services as well as drummer Landon Hapner. The permanent line-up was now solidified. All members seek the same goal: to create music, heavy or light, with mood and feeling that you can bob your head to. The band released their debut album \'Moustache of Sorrow\' July of 2008, and have been making a name for themselves through a series of regional shows.
