Qed-Quod Erat Demonstrandum
5 years ago Thatwasthen began as a tight-harmonied, acoustic duo. Today they encompass everything that is considered a true-talent rock band. Utilizing their experience as performers in movies, commercials and theater, they exude a powerful presence on stage and in their musical endeavors. With deep backgrounds in the classic rock, metal, pop, musical theater and indie genres, the young men in Thatwasthen bring you amazing and unique live performance! Acoustic jams. Thigh-tightening riffs. Wailing solos. Round and ringing harmonies. Poignant poetry. Unique comedy. All of these fundamental pillars hold the mighty Thatwasthen legacy skyward! In earnest, Thatwasthen comes from the mellow town of Dana Point, CA where they attended high school. They all then went on to college at UCLA. The twist is, they're generations apart! Founding musician/songwriter Brenton Sinay transitioned to UCLA in the Fall of 2000, while founding member Nathan Longdon, a long time friend of Sinay's, began as a Bruin in 2004. The final link, young Nicky Papageorge, began his stay at UCLA in the fall of 2007. Benny Dacks, and 'Luda' Chris Bridge joined in the fall of '08. With their education, the boys have enabled their musical intuition, and have made a huge splash in a very short time, playing with headliners such as Shwayze, Marcy Playground and Fountains of Wayne. In the summer of 2008, they recorded their first EP entitled 'Q.E.D. EP - Quod erat demonstrandum' with producer Max Coane (Jack's Mannequin, Oh No! Not Stereo). Having recorded the album in one week's time, they believe the record speaks for itself. It is currently available for download everywhere!
