When Travis McCoy and drummer Matt McGinley first became friends in their upstate New York high school gym class, they could have never anticipated the success that awaited them.
After learning of each other’s talents, the two decided to start a band, and thus Gym Class Heroes was born. With the addition of Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo on guitar and Eric Roberts on bass, the foursome have achieved success beyond their wildest dreams.
Their hit single "Cupid's Chokehold" reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the single "Clothes Off!!" peaked at #5 on the UK Singles Chart. Also, the Gym Class Heroes were fortunate enough to take home the trophy for Best New Artist and were also nominated for Best Group at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards.
Focusrite had the pleasure of running into Gym Class Heroes’ guitarist, Disashi in Miami, Florida at a red carpet event. Here’s what he had to say about Focusrite gear:
“When I record, I’ve been using the Focusrite Saffire. It’s extremely convenient, portable and it gets the job done when I am recording in logic. I haven’t had any problems with it!”
