Feeling a bit camera shy


The members of Killing Santa Clara started playing in early 2000. Chris Wellman (drummer), and Mike Oberley (guitarist) met and right off the bat had the same dreams. They knew where they wanted to go and how to get there. After playing in their first band with a hand full of people, they found Joey Swords in 2002 (current bassist) who had also been in previous bands, and formed an inseparable match. During this time they struggled to find the right front man with the same professional views and qualities that they have. They had seen Dave Escobedo (current front man) in previous bands and through a friend they contacted him and met at a Waffle House in Grove City, Ohio. They discussed personal dreams and views and realized that every thing was a perfect match. The name Killing Santa Clara has an artistic meaning of letting go of the pains that this world, or those in this world have caused us. In other words forgive, forget, and move on with life. Each member of Killing Santa Clara is a seasoned musician and always strives to be more professional yet still have fun in the process. With their passionate, yet powerful sound and devoted members, Killing Santa Clara has all the right ingredients to be successful in the music industry.
