The band was originally formed by singer Andy Maize and lead guitarist Josh Finlayson as a duo called West Montrose, and later added rhythm guitarist Peter Cash, drummer Wayne Stokes and bassist Ron Macey to their lineup after becoming regular performers at Acoustic Meltdown, a weekly concert series at Toronto’s Spadina Hotel organized by Cash’s brother, singer-songwriter Andrew Cash. The expanded lineup settled on the name Skydiggers, a name which Andrew Cash had previously considered for his own band.(wiki)
