TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Pimp Lightning joined us this morning for another edition of Sunrise Rocks!

Tallahassee based Pimp Lightning consists of Derek Helms (drums, percussion, and vocals), Brian Hudnall (lead guitar and lead vocals), and Craig Gibbens (bass guitar and vocals). 

The band started after a celebration of a competitive softball victory with a team called the Bad Seeds. They discovered that they all played music and started playing together for fun. Starting off with the name "B.C.D.," they eventually morphed into Pimp Lightning, and the band says that the rest is history.

They have an upcoming CD release party as well as more shows to be determined. Check out their website and Facebook for more information on those events, and be sure to listen to more of their music at their Reverbnation page.

Pimp Lightning performed several original songs for us on WTXL Sunrise and Second Cup. Watch their performances and interview below.
