Spider Bags got it's start in Muskogee, OK at the Air Force base there. Dan McGee was training to be a cadet, as was Gregg Levee. They were both unceremoniously discharged from the Air Force in 2006. Dan is very near-sighted and Gregg is flat-footed. They were waiting for the bus back to New Jersey and they both had guitars, so they started writing songs. By the time they got back to their stop in North Carolina, they had written 20 some-odd songs. They had some friends in North Carolina so they called them up and made a record.
