Banana Gun has an odd tale of how the band ended up in Phoenix. As bass player Ross Troost tells it, he and drummer Ian Breslin and guitarist Nick Dehaan were on a West Coast tour nearly a decade ago in their old band, Fat Rabbit, when they swung through the Valley.

"Phoenix was our last stop," Troost says, "We had a sponsorship with a hotel and the general manager let us stay a few weeks, and that turned into, what, like eight or nine years now? So we've been here ever since."
It's a unique tale that goes along with Banana Gun's unique recording style, which it utilized during the creation of the band's two most recent albums, including the latest LP, Love Instinct.
