Formed in 1992 in Bend, Oregon, UR fused funk and reggae to create an original sound that later became a staple on the West Coast. They picked up critical band members in Eugene and began traveling up and down the West Coast playing clubs, festivals, bars and taverns. Their reach soon expanded to include as far east as Chicago and as far North as Canada and Seattle to San Diego on I-5 (The Mother). 1993 saw their first release, a dreadfully reggae CD titled Right On. They follow up with 1995's release Serial Survivors, a CD which showcased their maturity as musicians and Rob's evolution as a songwriter. It wouldn't be until New Years Eve 2000 that they would release their final effort: Stop, Look and Listen, an enhanced CD that included videos, interviews and a retrospective look at the bands journey up until that time. The band broke up in 2004 with the divorce of the bass player (Rob) and lead guitarist (Danyel). Both went on to play in different (and numerous) bands. These days Rob continues to write and arrange music and create digital art. He works at Facebook in Central Oregon. Danyel lives in Maui Hawaii where she surfs and plays her own music on the local music scene.
