About The Band
Sir, Please is a band of four best friends from Agoura Hills, California. The origins of the funkadelic pop outfit are still a complete mystery, although numerous theologians have dedicated their lives to uncover the many secrets of old (and failed). What information we can gather through the collected ancient texts is sparse, but informative nonetheless. It is written that Shane Cronin was a semi-finalist in the 2013 Fingerboarding World Championship, whose career was brought to a swift and tragic end when he broke his pinky kickflipping a 10-stair. After dabbling in numerous finger-sports, his passions translated nicely to piano. Michael Leese and Josh Cronin were deep-sea scavengers in the Caspian Sea, on a quest to discover the hidden city of Atlantis. When their search lead them to a resort and spa in the Bahamas, they lost their passion for the pursuit and decided to start a band instead. They immediately pawned off their scuba gear and deep sea medallions for a guitar and bass. David Kohn was the son of two spice runners on a distant planet, whose force sensibilities were completely unmatched. Though he was still a youngling, he had grown too powerful, and his greed overtook him; there was no stopping the darkness within. Ever since, he has been on a mission to rule the galaxy. He has to play drums on the side, because galactic armies are increasingly pricy. Once they had all banded together, there was nothing to stop them from making funk history... except for a complete lack of talent and material. Now, after years locked away in a stinky dungeon together, they’re back for revenge; but against what?
Shane discovered his ability to sing and to play songs on piano by ear during his freshman year of high school. He continued to teach himself how to play piano, drums, and a little bit of guitar. He then quit the basketball team because he wanted to direct all of his attention to making music. He gained some experience performing in a local band with a few of his friends, until he was kicked out from that group. A few months later, he met Michael Leese, and along with his twin brother, Josh Cronin, the three of them wrote Sir, Please's first song, "Heartbreak Hill", and formed what is now Sir, Please.
Ever since he was young, music has been Michael’s undivided passion. A self taught multi-instrumentalist, Michael first came up on the scene as a bass player for various different local bands. After a couple years of searching for the right musicians to form his own project with, he met singer Shane Cronin through some mutual friends they both knew on the music scene. It only took one jam session to realize they had something special on their hands, and Sir, Please was born. Michael’s rhythmic guitar style and poetic songwriting helps bring a unique dynamic to the Sir, Please sound.
David has played drums and guitar since he was 7 years old. David has been playing in bands since sixth grade which is when he met Michael Leese. A couple years later, Lead singer Shane Cronin gave David a call about playing one gig with his band. After that, "Sir, Please" was born.
Josh Cronin plays bass and sings background vocals. He was inspired to start playing the bass when he was 15, after watching his friends play local shows. When his twin brother Shane Cronin, and guitar player Michael Leese, started Sir, Please, it didn’t take long for Josh to join as well.
