Save Ferris

A failed ska group turned alternative popsters, Save Ferris was originally formed as a ska-punk band named Los Pantelones. After the group broke up in 1995, guitarist Brian Mashburn and saxophone player Eric Zamora began writing songs, together with former bandmates Bill Uechi (bass) and José Castellaños (trumpeter). The quartet later recruited drummer Mark Harismendy, vocalist Monique Powell, and trombone player T-Bone Willy.

The band gigged around the Orange County area for just one month, and recorded the EP Introducing Save Ferris. Invited to compete in a Grammy Showcase of unsigned bands, Save Ferris won local and regional competitions, then flew to New York for the final round; after just one show, a senior executive at Epic Records began talking to the band and signed them, even before they found out the results of the competition. Working with producer Peter Collins, Save Ferris recorded their debut full-length It Means Everything. Thanks to an energetic cover of "Come on Eileen" (by Dexy's Midnight Runners), the album did well on alternative radio. Modified followed in 1999. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Care to expound on that Hipstermusic a l i e r ? It's easy to express offense, but it would really help to know what exactly is offensive.

My cousin is lead singer Monique Powell. I am offended at how atrocious and off mark this ridiculous bio is.

They're not saying that Save Ferris was a failed ska band... Save Ferris was originally formed as a ska-punk band named Los Pantelones. After the group broke up in 1995,

Failed Ska group????
I think their first album was much better than their second, and the first album was Ska!

Failed ska group? Who writes these summaries? I'm not a fan, but Save Ferris built their reputation on having a heavy ska touch to their poppy mix.

It's funny that every song Pandora has played for me from Save Ferris has had the chirping ska chords in it...yet Pandora's summary says "failed ska group."

Get with the program, Pandora.

Saw them perform in Portland, Maine. It was a great performance form a truly energetic and engaged band. Whereas when I saw No Doubt live, I thought Gwen Stefani can't sing her way out of a paper bag

yes it was a pun on ferris bueller. great band though i think they lost steam when this album came out. Monique seemed to even lose her voice at a lot of shows that in previous shows she had wailed like a banshee. and no this wasnt their first album there was an album before this called introducing save ferris. whoever wrote this need to research a bit more. still love the band and always will

This band wouldn't happen to be named after the phrase Save Ferris from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, would it?

Failed? Pshhhh... Stupid reviewers like the above need to have seen bands like this LIVE before being WAY OFF in their write-ups... This guy propably thinks that Sublime was just another flash-in-the - p a n Garage-Punk band from Long Beach...
