STAGE MOVES: Equipment Failure, Guitar Dropage, The Robot. Shortly after starting Spank Bank with Aaron, Mike opened the doors at Starwipe Studios in Circleville, Ohio. Cutting his producing and engineering teeth on the Spank Bank records, he branched out and recorded poet laureate David Covington's groundbreaking 'Iambic Pontifications.' Mike freelances as a sound bite recorder for National Public Radio. Samples of his recordings, 'Crusin' in Town,' 'Donkey and the Dancer,' and 'Prom 2003,' have been used in many chart-topping hits.

A penchant for riffs and rhymes lead Aaron to create Spank Bank with Mike. Moreover, his penchant for drinking and womanizing lead Aaron into a 'Three's Company' style situation that resulted in a weekend jail sentence and forty hours of community service. Other than of having to relinquish his peaches at mealtime, the jail term passed without much incident. He was able to count band practice as community service.

STAGE MOVES: The Sanford, The Haymaker, The Hound Dog Two-Step. Rob's Front Man routine quickly gained admirers from the dance and conceptual art communities. He hosted dance recitals, often times performing a twenty to thirty-five minute routine, consisting of an intricate blend of classic and contemporary moves, including those of his own design. Such offers quickly dried up, however, when he returned from the Competitive Eating circuit sixty-five pounds heavier and still insisted on wearing a body stocking. MIKE SAMMONS (aka: That Mike) SIGN: Unknown POSITION: Hittin' and a-Kickin' IN-TUNE PERCENTAGE: 1.000 RFTC CODE NAME: B-Side Lightsaber SIG. STAGE MOVES: Sitting Down, Falling Over. While visiting the Orient, 'Colonel' Jason Courtney, thinking he was in a restaurant and ordering pike salmon, purchased Mike to be his servant. Making the best of it, The Colonel made Mike his house keeper and errand boy, which included fetching hookers and blow. Tiring of FBI raids and making Mike do 'women's work,' Mike was ordered to play drums with Spank Bank and perform for The Colonel's birthday party. Except for one disastrous Saturday rehearsal, practices went well, and the show was the highest grossing in SB history ($17 each). Learn more at spank-bank.net.
