Unlike most traditional bands Dennis Robicheau started out with a revolving cast of local Long Beach musicians that are powerhouses in their own right. They formed and played their first show at Alex’s Bar on super bowl Sunday 2010. The rotating cast of musicians make for a great live performance and this is where the band really shines. The current lineup consist of front man Dennis Robicheau and The Sophisticates (ranging and not limited to, sometimes, all the times, part times, and full times) JP Bendzinski, Alfred Hernandez,  Mike Franke, Aeron Archambault, Chris Mckinnon, Miguel Vasquez, Dylan Wood, Mike Khalil, Jonathon Theimens, Mattise Ibarra, Sheridan Riley.
