Founded in the cruel winter of 2007, The Kansas City Bear Fighters first took shape as one lonely man's homage to music as a salve for the soul. Originally, the group performed under the nom de plume "The Denver Broncos" which many considered to be the product of one man's struggling and genius search for a fire that could crack the deep cavernous walls of his soul. Quinn McCue, the band's leader and sole songwriter, took up music after a failed career as the leader of a short-lived, but violent, cult. Sean McCue, brother of Quinn, son of Stephen and Katherine, is as tough as the soviet hammer and as crooked as the scythe that crosses it. Mark Johnson is a man of many talents who collects stamps and is an amateur etymologist; both trades he learned while serving a eight year sentence in Leavenworth for torturing a farmer and his wife. Bobby Evans works odd jobs throughout the Kansas City area earning little money and even less respect. He joined the band on a dare from his dark protector. The crooners play regularly in Kansas City and Lawrence.
