One Direction. ‘N Sync. The Backstreet Boys. They’ve got nothing on the dreamy boys of Coverflow. And yes, you heard right—Coverflow will be playing at Vator Splash on February 13.

We know you have a lot of questions, like what makes these guys tick? What are they looking for in a girlfriend? And who is their favorite Downton Abbey character? So we caught up with them to find out.

Raj—The Bad Boy

Quick Facts

Sign: Libra

Favorite Movie: Spinal Tap

Height: Taller than the average bear

This bad boy lead singer is the perfect amount of danger to make things exciting and get back at your overbearing parents. He enjoys watching “Homeland,” rocking out on stage, and he does NOT have a girlfriend! (Because he’s married with four kids.)

What’s your favorite way to spend the weekend?

Raj: With fortune cookies…in bed.

What’s your favorite animal?

Raj: Bat—best animal used at a rock concert.

What’s your biggest phobia?

Raj: Fear of stages, dancing, crowds, and singing.

Do you have a girlfriend?

Raj: Not that I know of.

 

Tim Chang: The Mysterious One

Quick Facts:

Height: 6’

Sign: Libra

Instrument: Bass guitar

Favorite movie: When Harry Met Sally

By day, he’s a partner at Mayfield Fund, but by night he’s the sultry, enigmatic bass guitarist for Coverflow. He likes cats, listening to Grimes, and catching up with friends over coffee and good food. And he’s on the market!*

What’s your biggest phobia?

Tim: That the universe actually does NOT operate according to Karma…

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Tim: People who act as if the universe doesn’t operate according to Karma!

If you weren’t a VC/entrepreneur/rock star, what would you be doing?

Tim: Actor/writer/teacher

What’s your idea of the perfect date?

Tim: Something new plus old favorites shared. Learning someone's life story, and discovering something new about yourself in the process. Multiple settings that start off planned and then follow whimsy and serendipity. Trying or learning something new together (or doing something that you haven't done in years but used to love).

*Except he's married with kids

 

Kristian Segerstråle: The Heartthrob

Quick Facts:

Height: 6’1

Sign: Cancer

Favorite animal: Dinosaur

With his keyboards and his non-threatening good looks, this swoon-worthy exec is the newest member of the band. He likes flying planes, playing games and music, and his ideal date would be an evening in a salsa club in downtown Havana (squeak!). But slow down, girls…he’s not looking for a girlfriend at the moment as there is simply no room in his schedule for starting a new relationship. (And because he’s married with two kids.)

What’s your favorite movie?

Kristian: Star Wars IV

What’s your favorite book?

Kristian: The Wheel of Time

What’s your biggest pet peeve?

Kristian: Paperwork. I hate paperwork of any kind - from paying bills to filling out forms where things should be done automatically.

Can I be your girlfriend?

Kristian: You’d have to talk to my wife.

 

Prashant Fuloria: The Sensitive One

Quick Facts:

Sign: Sagittarius

Favorite Book: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

Favorite movie: Spinal Tap

Having a rough day? Prashant has a shoulder you can cry on. This softie is a sweet, sensitive listener when you want to vent about your passive-aggressive co-workers and how much you hate those bitches. And he's a badass guitarist who rocks the party! He’s the perfect boyfriend!*

What’s the last thing you listened to on your iPod?

Prashant: What’s an iPod?

What’s your biggest phobia?

Prashant: Iron Maiden-inspired Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

How tall are you?

Prashant: Two inches taller than you think.

What’s your idea of the perfect date?

Prashant: Actually going out on a date with my wife.

*Except he's married with kids.

 

Ethan Beard: The Big Brother

Quick Facts:

Sign: Taurus

Favorite Movie: Pulp Fiction

Favorite Book: Interview with the Vampire

Favorite Downton Abbey Character: Matthew Crawley

Like his predecessors Kevin from the Backstreet Boys and JC from ‘N Sync, Ethan is the sweet, thoughtful big brother who will help you resolve your daddy issues. He likes relaxing with friends, listening to Will.i.am and Britney, and his dream date is a rousing night of karaoke (with someone who can sing). And he’s single!!*

What’s your favorite animal?

Ethan: Penguin.  They dress formally but walk their walk is so absurd.

How tall are you?

Ethan: 2.5 Biebers.

Do you have a girlfriend?

Ethan: Maybe

Are you looking for a girlfriend?

Ethan: Maybe

Can I be your girlfriend?

Maybe ; )

Favorite Book: HTML For Dummies

This goofy Scorpio is sure to put a smile on your face with his zany antics, which will be a welcome relief when you're doing one of your seasonal cayenne pepper juice fasts that just make you want to cut a bitch. But don't get him wrong--when it comes to your feelings, he's all business.
