Biography

With plenty of hair, no shirts, and a riotous enthusiasm that’s downright infectious, Full Service throws the kind of fiesta where metal heads, reggae skanks, college grads, jocks, and hard funk fans can surf waves or shoot hoops, boost the volume, and get down in harmony. Influenced by the Chili Peppers, the Beach Boys, Faith No More and many others, the Full Service sound and performance is one of unpredictable fun with a surprisingly deep and thoughtful underbelly. Notorious for their “Takeover” tours and grassroots-or-die ethos, the band inspires fanatical loyalty from its FanSaw Army, who know that with Full Service, you may not know where you're gonna end up, but you're sure as hell gonna be happy you got there.

Recently completed tours include direct support slots for 311 (May 12 – 16, 2009) and extensive touring with Badfish: Sublime Tribute at premier venues from Vermont to Texas.

College-educated (brothers Hoag and Bonesaw graduated from Yale University and Amherst College, respectively) and fanatically motivated, the band mixes extensive college and club touring with high-visibility tours opening for national bands.

Based in Austin TX, the band members all live together in Bonesaw's house and mix up the jamming with daily soccer matches, gardening, and even have three chickens in the back yard. It's a lifestyle!

Set List

FS has several different set STYLES rather than sets: the songs that "slay" and the songs that "sway." Many shows (especially big parties) will start with the swaying and end with the slaying! FS never writes down a set list - all it takes is a nod or a note from Bone to get Hoag, Twink, and Smellman ready for the right next song. All originals, all the time.

In other words, we can play forever (have 5 full length albums and much more material beyond that) and are masters at adapting to any venue or scene.
