Family Wagon’s searing blend of rock n' roll was born in early 2008 at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA. Ryan Weiss (guitars) first met Gareth Moore (bass) shortly after Gareth had completed a stint of living in his van, a Family Wagon, in Ocean Beach, CA and decided to attend college. They began jamming and working on starting a band. Shortly thereafter, Bryan Bangerter (drums, vocals), a multi-talented musician from Hawaii, joined the boys to make a band more of a reality. Next, a farm boy from Kansas, Calen Lucas (vocals), joined the mix bringing along his microphone and commanding vocals. The group began performing around town while writing and expanding their following. Trips up to Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Francisco helped the band continue to hone their captivating live show. Most recently, the band traveled to Austin, TX in March 2012 for a successful trip to showcase at the annual SXSW festival. Family Wagon released their first LP "Teleblaster", recorded by local musician Keith Milgaten (Jamuel Saxon), in December of 2010. They have recently added a fifth member, Jarel Paguio (organ/keys), for their latest EP entitled "Last Drag" which is slated for release in Spring 2012. "Last Drag EP" was produced and recorded in Long Beach, CA by Matt Wignall (Cold War Kids, Deep Sea Diver, Mando Diao). “Family Wagon plays hard-driving rock that pairs a Summer of Love vibe with tons of testosterone. You can practically smell the man-sweat…” (SD CityBeat Magazine 2010).
