The mild-mannered leader of team SPOT. When the call goes out Shawn summons the other heros and leads them into battle with his mezmerizing organ powers.

Paul “The Octopus” Griffin

When SPOT takes the stage you’ll always find Paul with eight drum sticks, manning the battle drums and laying the beat that the other members rally around.

“Who’s this kid on stage?”, is the last thing the crowd thinks before Evan melts their brains with his blazing guitar axe. Don’t let the age fool you, He’s got chops for days.
