Feeling a bit camera shy


MOUTH FULL started in the spring of 2011 when guitarist Mike Feeney held auditions for a vocalist to fill out the roster of a band he was putting together. After several frustratingly awful try-outs Mike found current vocalist, Rick Gardner, when he responded to an ad Mike posted to Craigslist. The band then consisted of Mike, Rick, and two other members, playing the drums and bass.

After about a... month of practicing, the drummer of the band had to leave due to personal reasons. The bass player was also having a hard time committing to the band because of scheduling conflicts and other interests. During this time Mike and Rick realized a shared interest in writing style and and methods. Because of this they decided to stay together and form a new band using the material they had produced together during this time. Mike and Rick occupied themselves with writing the songs that would define the sound of MOUTH FULL while looking for members to fill out the ranks of the band.

In late September of 2011 Mike decided to yet again post some ads to Craigslist- this time, in search of a drummer. Rick protested this idea, but Mike reminded him that it worked out pretty well in recruiting Rick. To reassure him, Mike equipped Rick with a whistle and can of mace for the upcoming try-outs.

Within days of posting the ad to Craigslist current drummer, Josiah Reebis, responded and tried out for the band. He was totally rad and was immediately initiated as a member of the band.

The band searched for two months in order to find a bassist via the Craigslist route. Since bass is really lame and nobody plays it, the guys had no luck in getting anyone to come try out. Luckily, Rick remembered that he knew how to play the bass and the band began recruiting their last member to fill out their roster; primarily a person to play leads on a second guitar.

The search for this member was the most extensive effort made by any of the band members in any venture of their collective lives. Friends, acquaintances, and strangers came to try out for this last spot, but nobody seemed a good fit. Finally, in an act of complete desperation, Mike decided that the band might have luck with another Craigslist ad. A few days later Chuck Collins responded to this ad and was welcomed as the final member of MOUTH FULL.

With the completed roster and first album written, the band immediately took to the stage to test their material out on live audiences. Playing venues such as The California Brewhaus, Water Street Music Hall and The Montage Music Hall yielded reviews of "wow" and "amazing" from many on-lookers. With their rapidly growing following and EP entitled "Come and Meet the Guys" scheduled to release in mid-February, who knows where this group will end up!
