VIDEO: Capt. Michael Renn had a few minutes before dinner with the rest of the crew at Louisville Fire Department’s Engine 2.
With diving gear from training that day drying out behind him, he sat down for a quick jam session with Sgt. Alex Eckert — fellow firefighter and fellow band mate.
"I think it started off with me kind of probably just playing guitar, bringing my guitar up to the fire house, and then bumping into actually…our lead singer,” said Renn.
Lead singer and harmonica player Capt. Sam Pierce works out of Engine 15 and Sgt. Trevor Dixon, on the drums, is at Engine 9.
Eckert plays bass and also works out of Engine 2.
“The name of our band is Quickline,” said Renn. “On our engine companies, it is the first line that we would pull off. It is our go-to hand line with water in it that we take into a structure."
