Ever hear of “The One That Got Away?”

Well, this fish tale just happens to be true, and it happened right here in the 757. Josiah and Zeek VanFleet went out on what would be an “ordinary” fishing trip – or so they thought.

They were very excited as they had just become the proud owners of their very own boat, and were ready to test it out in the open water.

We had a quick chat with the members of Starcoast and premiered their latest song, Believe In Love.  Now, we get a bit more personal.

How did you first know that you, as a band, were a good fit?
