Political Party Crashers

In 2006, the wheels were put in motion for what would become the Political Party Crashers. Founding members Pete Imbesi, Andy Brown, Spaz Curran, Mike McMahon began practices with then-called Fiasco, a fledgling ska band with a very different make-up. The music was different, the skill questionable, but the passion for entertaining a crowd was born. Before too long, Andy switched over to tenor saxophone, creating the running melodies and strong backbone to a developing horn section.

In 2006, the wheels were put in motion for what would become the Political Party Crashers. Founding members Pete Imbesi, Andy Brown, Spaz Curran, Mike McMahon began practices with then-called Fiasco, a fledgling ska band with a very different make-up. The music was different, the skill questionable, but the passion for entertaining a crowd was born. Before too long, Andy switched over to tenor saxophone, creating the running melodies and strong backbone to a developing horn section. In 2008, Casey Henrichs began mixing in the signature blast of his trombone to the mix, and in the following year, Pat Piaggio brought his alto to the group, making strong, compelling highs an integral part of the sound. The tight, rolling bass lines that hold it all together are the work of Alex Morey, who joined in early 2010. Over the years, members came and went (and even, now, returned), but a sound started to evolve. There was a sheer joy in it all, an ironic joke of a name and a unique blend of genres to call their own. The Political Party Crashers are energetic, entertaining, but most of all, something entirely their own. One thing that sets PPC apart from other bands is the live performance. Even though there's a specific sound of the record, each show is uniquely different than the previous. A hard working young band that has potential to create something very special in the near future as they teeter on the fence of their "post-ska" creations. Bands that come to mind when listening to PPC are: Less Than Jake, Big D, Reel Big Fish, Suicide Machines, Streetlight Manifesto, Catch 22, Dispatch, and Rx Bandits « hide
