Singer/guitarist Phil Shoemaker, bassist David Boye, guitarist Steve Lamphere, and drummer Dave Robel began their career as Shithook by performing together in countless Florida bands in the same circuit. After stints with local legends like the Boys and Rock Therapy, the members came together with one common idea: live karaoke. The band would play popular songs, and the audience members would pay to get up on stage and sing. They also recorded their debut, When a Boyscout Gets the Blues, while continuing to perform their weekly live karaoke gigs.
