After playing several gigs as Emerald Town, the trio recruited drummer Charlie Bushor and started playing around the region. In 1993, the music group recorded Thanks for visiting the Why Shop for Blee-Hee-Hee Information and followed twelve months later with In the Why Shop. Longtime keyboard participant Jeff Pedersen was produced an official person in the group, as well as the Why Shop authorized to MCA’s Method Awesome Music subsidiary for his or her first major-label work, a self-titled LP released in 1996.
