Two USC business school graduates who've been unable to find jobs have decided to start a two-man band and play music together while they continue their search.

Cody Sento and Bryan Ortner decided to make the best out of a tight  job market by doing something to express themselves, and possibly make some money.

"I think an undergraduate college degree just isn't enough these days to get a good job. You need a Master's or Law degree. So, we decided to start a band," says Ortner. 

So far they said they have only been playing at open mic nights around town at places like The Loose Cockaboose and Kelly's, but they feel that will soon change.  They say they've developed a loyal group of fans since they started playing together a few months ago.

The pair say they are having fun playing music, but they have not given up on finding a steady job.

"I took the LSAT recently and if that goes well I may go to law school. We will just have to see," says Ortner.

They say they will continue to play together until something changes in their lives, but until that day music will continue to be their goal as well as their therapy.
