S.H.I's roots hail from New Mexico with the exception of Rene Ramos a true blue born Texan from Abilene.
As a boom of ambitious musicians fuel the Duke City's Rock Revolution! They create a sound so familiar yet unique in its own form!
While experiencing a S.H.I. show you cannot help but to be drawn into the party. Playing the Fire & Ice Bike Rally since 2003 S.H.I's 1st rally appearance was at the Sail Fish Saloon. Since then S.H.I has played many Rallies including a steady string of special events. Monsters of Mock, Bud True Live Music, numerous Battle of the Bands, countless Blarney Bashes and over 800 local shows including benefits to date.
These local rock rebels forged their name into being . . . After a decade they remain a solid pillar in Albuquerque's thriving music scene. In November of 2012 S.H.I went into the studio for the first time and recorded ten songs. February, 2013 the "FirstfouR" EP was released to promote the May 17th release "11 Year Itch".
Tim Mercy a seasoned musician singer songwriter guitarist has been at it since the ripe young age of 12. Thallium was my first band he recalls & Unstoppable was my first real paying gig in middle school. Pulse, Beyond Reality and Down on Mercy led me to where I am today. Playing clubs in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado since he was 15. Tim says "My parents were very graceful when it came to music as long as my younger brother and I stayed out of trouble they supported us" as he chuckles. Tim was chosen for the Ultimate Band 3 Vocalist competition in 2006 sponsored by "104.7 The Edge Radio" . . . . . . . . . . . His band "POSSESS and CONCEAL"managed by Dex Toth rivaled Bucks band "BLINDDRYVE" on the Buck & Dex morning show.
Fito Garza is a veteran and real crowd pleaser, the backbone of S.H.I. since the early days when the band formed in 1991. He is the only member remaining from the original High School lineup. Fito boasts "I didn't even know how to play the bass when we started I just picked it up cuz they needed a bass player!"
Rene Ramos brings a true energy and tightness to Shit Happens Inc ... former drummer to local talents (Who'z Ur Daddy and Phat Jasper) His lavishing beats thump like a human clock!! Rene has had a passion for the drums since his early youth. At age 8 he remembers the start of his life long affair. At age 14 his mother bought him a pearl kit red birch wood he remembers.
Louis Torres a former member of S.H.I. quit in 2005. Lou rejoined winter 2012.
Lou has a talent for writing great riffs and a mean sound! Lou started playing at the age of 13. Since, he has dabbled in a variety of styles but he found his true calling in Rock n' Roll . . . . From a technical standpoint Lou is always up to date with the latest and greatest guitar goodies. Lou uses ENGL amps exclusively!! " It just seems to fit and brings attitude to the bands branded style" he says!!!
If any band in the southwestern U.S. deserves the title, "Party Band", it would undoubtedly be "SHIT HAPPENS INC."!!!!! "With the energy these 4 souls release in a 45 minute set they could quite possibly supply power to a small city........ Definitely check out these Bad Boys of Burque! You wont be disappointed!!!
