As the night unfolded, Joseph and Jared knew instantly that it was meant to be: Thayne filled in completing what the band needed vocally and as a second guitar player. After a lengthy process of going through many people, Hans Ringger was finally brought in by a gust of wind, and the shoe fit from the moment he picked up the bass guitar. With Hans’ experiences and talents completing the missing puzzle piece, Shark Speed was complete. The band officially formed in the winter of 2008.
Shark Speed separates itself from other bands through its hard work ethic and D.I.Y attitude. Every member playing a different instrument then they have previously played in past projects has helped create the band’s own unique style. Having three out of the four members raised in the Las Vegas music scene has also helped bring an instant common ground to the band. Hans, who hails from Mesa Arizona, has likewise brought his own desert feel to the mix, and has helped narrow that common ground into something ground-breaking. With less then a year under its belt, Shark Speed has seen a continual increase in its local fan base, and recently recorded its debut album “Sea Sick Music” in the summer of 2008.
Taking out loans and working second jobs, Shark Speed band members invested and financed the whole record themselves. Producer Bob Hoag recorded the album at the Flying Blanket Studio in Mesa, Arizona. Hoag is known for his work with such band as The Format, Dear and The Headlight, Scary kids Scaring Kids. The band released the album themselves, and has been actively engaged in promoting their music throughout Utah and the entire country.
With Thayne’s unique vocal style and the bands progressive music, Shark Speed has created a refreshing sound. Playing to sold out crowds, and winning the words of countless critiques, the members of Shark Speed, through their hard work and friendship, have created something lasting and worth listening to.
