Santos is the homeland of every member of the band, except for ChorÃ£o, who is from SÃ£o Paulo.
When ChorÃ£o came to Santos at seventeen (after a difficult and somewhat traumatic childhood) he already had a strong interest in skateboarding and rock music. From time to time he would stand in for a singer of a local rock band when the guy had to go to the bathroom during a show. A musician in another saw ChorÃ£o performing during these bathroom breaks and invited him to join his band.
