The band is also not afraid to share their heartwarming stories with fans. One such story occurred when the band lost a member.
Fortunately, it was just an unfortunate mishap and not a fatal one. However, it does have a sad side to it. The Pygmies lost bass player Jacob Sanders in March after a fishing excursion in Florence Harbor. After a quick search, authorities determined that the water levels were too low for an efficient search. But luckily for the Pygs, Stacey and Link were on hand to lend a helping hand.
