LAPUSH has been together as a band since 2003, and played their first gig together that November. The group members are, Thom Donovan (lead vocals, guitar), Kevin Bachmann (bass), and Neil Bardon (drums). Donovan says, "I knew Kevin from a local music store in town and Neil lived down the street from me growing up." "We've all been friends for a long time." "Neil just joined the band about 10 months ago but I've been friends with him for a while. We used to play shows with Neil's old band around town."
