Bobaflex was established in 1998 by the McCoys. The idea for Bobaflex happened in 1997 when Shaun, Lutz and Drebbit met at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. The brothers were no strangers to the press, having ancestral ties to the most infamous family feud in American history, between the Hatfields and the McCoys which almost caused a war between the states of West Virginia and Kentucky in the 1880s.
Shaun said in an interview that the band’s name was inspired by the bounty hunter Boba Fett from Star Wars.
Continuously co-headlining Ohio’s largest independent rock festival Woodshock three years in a row, the band performed for crowds of over 5,000.
After playing out of state for months at a time, the band returned to West Virginia to find itself booked on 106.3-FM’s X-Fest, West Virginia’s largest Rock festival, sponsored by Huntington’s largest commercial rock radio station, WAMX).
Performing to an audience of 12,000 and sharing the stage with Nickelback, Disturbed and many others, Bobaflex played there three years in a row, thus landing a spot on the renowned Locobazooka tour in 2002 playing with Filter, Sevendust, and Mushroomhead just to name a few.

Samm Bauer – Keyboard/Samples
JR Anderson – Drums/Percussion
In Rapture as described by Chris Jorgensen of the Billings Gazette
“The guitars dive in on top of each other, piling up over the keyboards and sampled sounds, the drums rolling and bashing, the songs building to huge, rapturous crescendos, sometimes unraveling slowly, sometimes collapsing into silence. The songs can be mesmerizing, operatic in their emotional sweep.”
At Home in Hell
Paul – Drums
Kevin – Guitar
Lafe – Bass
Hailing from the cold, mysterious mountainscape of western Montana, At Home In Hell blends an abundance of musical stimulus into a brutally deranged onslaught of chugging riffs and hard hitting catches, mixing influences from east coast hardcore, west coast thrash and southern power groove while topping it all with a bit of industrial metal. At Home In Hell has been an intimidating presence in the Metal scene since 2005, having shared their visually striking stage performances with elite acts such as Soulfly, Suffocation, Immolation, Act Of Defiance and more. Though it seems onerous to subside on any specific genre characterization, rest assured there is something for everyone to enjoy, whether it be a solid groove, a neck-snapping riff or a soul devouring breakdown. At Home In Hell is Ben Epperle (Vocals), Paul Epperle (Drums), Kevin George (Guitars) and Lafe Boucher (Bass).
