Behind the name "My July"

Dave & Barbie grew up in a musical family and every year their parents (Jimmy & Deb) host elaborate 4th of July parties complete with a rockin' jam session. Family and friends would come together earlier in the day to set up a full stage complete with a PA, microphones, full back line, instruments and lights. Once the sun went down, the lights came on and the jamming sessions ensued for hours with a full dance floor and routine visits from the local police department (haha). Their annual 4th of July parties were literally the talk of the town and would draw 150-200 people at it's peak. After one of the many annual 4th of July parties, Dave called Barbie and said "Hey sis, we do this at every party - let's just keep the party going and start a band". And from one 4th of July spark...this explosive band was born.
