Feeling a bit camera shy


In the summer of 2004 four young musicians joined together to form the group Oveproof. After the first few practices these men knew that their potential could lead to the rock revolution that the masses were waiting for. Overproof is the band that will change the face of the music world one city at a time. When Cris and Christ met up with Robbie and Ryan at a local summer camp, the interests between the four sparked like a wild fire in southern California. Coming from different backgrounds in music, they found that they could come together and create a sound that would prove to be unmatched.
When the 2004 school year ended, Cris, Chris, Ryan and Robbie got together at a summer camp (as camp counselors), and decided to put on a show for all of the children. Things picked up quickly from then. The band started writing new material and practicing on a regular basis to solidify their guitar fronted sound. Among many small venues at local clubs and several parties the band had the opportunity to open for Pennywise in early 2005. After placing in a few local Battle of the Bands, such as the Simi Valley Days Carnival, they ventured out into Hollywood and played at a handful of clubs including the Key Club and The Whisky. The band also got the chance to compete in the 2005 Global Battle of the Bands and passed onto the regional semi-finals, placing them as one of the top14 bands in Los Angeles.
As a way to get their music out there, Overproof recorded a low budget 5-song demo in Ryan’s home studio and passed that out at shows and to friends. That CD was titled “The Long Line at the Buffet,” which included tracks such as “Save Yourself” and the Overproof drinking song, “BAC of Death.” As time went on Overproof decided to invest in a professional studio recording at Deerwood Studios with Vic Germano and had the CD pressed. This CD became entitled, “The Death of Emo” in response to the number of “whiney- emotional” bands showing up on the music scene. Tracks from this EP include “Emo Sucks” and the epic anthem, “Do it Right.”
Overproof continues to rock wherever they go. Whether it’s a small stage at some local café, or a world famous venue like the Whisky a gogo, these men put on a show that is one to remember.
