Our Rock Band Story

In late 2007, the Rock Band video game was released. Brandon bought the full band bundle and invited Stephen over to try out the vocals. He was instantly hooked and in less than a year, Stephen was the top ranked vocalist in the world in Rock Band and had started producing creative Rock Band vocals videos. To this day, Stephen continues to compete in Rock Band at a high level and produce more videos. The following are a summary of his accomplishments:
– Completed the first full game, full combos (FGFC) on any instrument of Rock Band 1, Rock Band 2, The Beatles Rock Band, Lego Rock Band, & Rock Band 4. Second FGFC of Rock Band 3.
