‘Bad’ Brad Morse, and Kevin Matthews who all come equipped with music degrees from Chicago, Boston, Jacksonville, and Denver, respectively. They each add flavors of their own background and heritage, further diversifying the band’s signature sound.

Over the last several years they have toured throughout the
U.S., Belgium, the Netherlands, and Belize. Today, the Gas Pops continue to bend genres and electrify live audiences with ferocious sincerity.
