Heffron Drive, actually founded by Kendall Schmidt prior to his joining Big Time Rush, was born of a chance meeting. After chatting at an industry event one night in LA in 2008, Kendall and Dustin Belt realized there was a lot more in common than meets the eye – both had been born in Wichita, Kansas, and when they went to make their way home, they realized they lived on the same street – Heffron Drive! Aside from becoming instant friends, the duo formed a band – what to call it was obvious – and thousands began streaming uploaded tunes via MySpace. The internet was soon buzzing about this new band, but shortly thereafter the Big Time Rush opportunity came along. Kendall joined up and eventually, Dustin was tapped as the touring guitarist for Big Time Rush. The two never forgot about Heffron Drive, though, stealing spare moments to write and plan, and now they are ready to hit the road with the FIRST EVER US Tour – Heffron Drive Live – with over 20 US tour dates so far, beginning November 23rd!
