For a little perspective on the unlikelihood of their position, consider this: Shelter, the club where the Martinez Brothers learned just about everything they know about house music, opened its doors the same year that Chris was born. Which makes it all the more incredible that Shelter was the Martinez Brothers' first major club gig in 2006.
