Disturbed by the lack of reality in the Tampa music scene, Sam and Richard formed GYROJETS to inject their own brand of realistic music -a genre once thought played out by the arm-folding dancers of Hillsborough County- into a world that needed to be told "You're Never Nothing". In only a few short months, GYROJETS became Tampa's premiere realistic music band, landing several historic gigs at Pegasus Lounge's first location. After several years of being told that they needed a bass player by passive-aggressive punks at (now defunct) bars, GYROJETS added their most realistic member to their roster, Markky Karloff. Karloff, who was there the night a ska band stole GYROJETS’ 2am slot on the bill at Insomniacs, maintains the DNA of a cat-snake stored in a secure location. To this day, GYROJETS are committed to making sure that the ghost pizzas are hot and the broplexxes are cold.
