Aurora DuBois started off her musical journey playing piano as a young child but fell in love with the idea of playing bass just a few years ago, when she saw In Rainbows Live in the Basement by Radiohead. She has been busy playing the bass ever since. Outside of Not Fade Away, she started her own cover band centered around the music of Kruangbin, she has joined an original post-rock group, and put together an all-girl funk/soul group. 

Mike Gallardo is thrilled to join Not Fade Away at FST! In his downtime, Mike tours with his band, Nightstand, who are slated to release their debut album, Spruce, this year. In addition to drums, Mike is an avid bassist and guitarist.

Favorite roles include Leaf Coneybear in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (MAC Award Win, Best Actor), Duke in The Great American Trailer Park Musical (MAC Award Win, Best Musical), and Jinx in Forever Plaid.
