Kaz has always been a singer - singing in the bath, singing in the kitchen, the aisle in the supermarket… However, she had never thought of doing it with a band or on a stage. In the 70s, Kaz and Mike were teenage sweethearts, and 25 years later they got back together. One summer night in 2004 Mike happened to hear Kaz's kitchen repertoire. He convinced her to go to an open mic night at The Roadhouse, and her singing career was launched. When The Lightning's original vocalist Andy went AWOL, she was recruited as his replacement with minimal use of force, all well within United Nations guidelines.
