Once upon a time, a band by the name of 650North was formed in Osgood, a small rural town on the eastern border of Indiana about 90 miles from Bloomington. Since the beginning of this fairy tale, the band members of 650North have since moved from their small country town to Bloomington, where their musical careers have been flourishing into a type of success only few start-up bands live to see. Since the beginning of their success, the band has been seen playing in shows with the likes of Ryan Cabrera, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row and the recently reformed Guns N' Roses. But this fairy tale did not begin yesterday. It has been a continuous work in progress for many years. Chris Bultman, the bassist of 650North, describes the band's feeling of success up to this point in one word: thankful.
