Bio

66ohm began in 2001 as a project between Paul "bub" Stevens and Ron "Cowboy" Rice. Originally an alternative band with Pixies and Nirvana style influences, they had an epiphany in 2002 as they soaked their souls in alt country and americana. Turns out bub had a natural affinity for writing tunes in that vein and they took off from there. Starting off as an acoustic duo, 66ohm played some great venues in the San Diego area, including The Golden Goose, Claire de Lune's, Twiggs, and Lestat's. They soon grew restless playing acoustic and found a rhythm section to back them electrically. With Sean "The Colonel" Lawson on bass and Todd Caschetta on drums 66ohm started firing on all cylinders playing venues such as The Alibi, Tio Leo's and the like. Unfortunately, during this time bub's alcohol and drug abuse took a toll on the band, resulting in increasingly erratic shows and internal conflicts. Caschetta left after a particularly drunken Stevens could barely stand during a show up in Encinitas. During this time, 66ohm did manage to record 5 songs packaged together as 5 roads back to where we started. Including songs like Divided, Maybe, Hang on Tight, One More Time and Nowhere. It was engineered by The Colonel and showed the promise that this band had but failed to achieve. In 2004 they finally gave up the ghost. Bub's inability to clean up for any length of time finally took it's toll. 66ohm for all intensive purposes was over. Cue to 2008. Bub had finally been able to clean up and he and Cowboy had been asked to play a birthday party for one of their close friends. It went well and they decide that they would like to make a go of it again at least acoustically. Which is what they have been doing for the last couple of years, most recently hitting the open mic nights at The Clean Scene for the last year, honing their chemistry and songs back to where they were in The Golden Goose days. Again, fate intervened. After playing a gig with League of Liars, they realized that they missed playing electric. Exit acoustic guitars. Enter Doug Saladino on drums and Carl Froehlich on bass. Enter 66ohm putting four on the floor. Looking forward to playing great shows at top venues and recording some more memorable music, 66ohm can only see blue skies on the horizon as they begin the 2010's with great hopes and even greater expectations.
