The brains of the operation, Logan is the voice of reason and his sharp wit gives everyone the perspective they need to stay true to themselves and their goals.  Life in the business is not easy and their antics often get them in trouble with the record label.  From falling for the same girl to redecorating their apartment at the Palm Woods to misbehaving with a new school teacher at the recording studio --  the group learns that success comes with hard work and dedication – and the support of one another.
