The Band(Jones Sparrow and Leiley)OOC
The 1920's was the prime of the United States. Technology advances, and the worth of the dollar has made America the true Land of Opportunity... The 18th Amendment made alcohol illegal, so it took gutsy people to illegally sell said drinks in bars secretly. This business was called bootlegging. And the people who run this aren't the friendliest of people. They are gang members. One of the most notorious in the crime world is The Band.
They are a group of friends that play at a very popular and fancy club. They have respect, and the fame of their jazz performance, but they are also cruel at times. They bootleg, kill, rob, sabotage, you name it. They hide their dark lives and mostly prefer their club life. Women, drinks, and money. And they swore that they wouldn't let anyone close so they won't get hurt.
That was until the leader of The Band started falling in love with a woman. Although it was frowned upon with his friends, he tried his best to hide his gang side from the woman so he could be with her more often... But that can't be all that easy. Things can come up, fights can be fought, and there might be that rare chance that The Band might get killed, or wounded.
Will they be able to keep the best of both worlds, or will both crumble?
Feel Free to add/remove whatever you want!
Name: Raymond Chase
Bio: I was raised off the streets. My father worked three jobs trying to pay for me and my sisters...My dad was an honest, brave, and the strongest man I've ever met... He taught me the value of family, money, and love... But then he died falling off a skyscraper in New York... I tried to help my sisters the best I could. I became the father figure, and I thought I did a pretty good job... But then I got into the wrong crowd, starting to use violence and smuggling for money at a young age. I stopped that, and went into the music business, picking up jazz from the people up in Harlem. I got some friends, and we started our own little jazz band, and soon became famous... Then prohibition came. That's when we got an idea. Start getting money by doing both performing, and crime... Sure, it wasn't the smartest, but at least it kept us in real good shape.
