In the early - 1990s, Chris Rice and Scott Mabry formed a band (the original denizens) for a high School talent show.  After being well received and playing around   Orlando , FL, the two decided to move out to Los Angeles , CA, to become a part of the L.A. music scene.  (Read Rock Stars) They found out that the L.A. music scene of the mid-1990's wasn't for them, and were soon back in Orlando forming a new band-- the denizens...  

Scott was the driving force behind getting them together.   The band went through several incarnations... Culture Shock, the Swinging Richards, Destiny's Child, and finally the denizens....

When the denizens played a show at the Hard Rock Cafe' in Orlando, Rob, Greg, and Josh saw the band and quickly became fans.  The three, who are lifelong friends since preschool, formed their own band and soon found themselves opening with their new friends the denizens.  Each band split up in 1999, only for the five to form the new lineup of the denizens in 2001 and made a six song demo CD.   

The denizens played several clubs in Melbourne and Orlando Florida.   Tony Mickle, a talented artist, left the band after Scott and Chris came home from California.  Scott and Chris stayed together until Chris joined 3AE.
