Pawnshop 45, formed in July 2006 on the rooftop of a local parking garage, originally consisting of members Jonathan Hansen (guitar) and Bobby Berger (Vocals). The two began experimenting on with an acoustic, Alternative/Hip-Hop sound while incorporating elements of Reggae, Rock and Ska into the mix. The two soon thirsted for a more filled out sound after realizing the potential of the music, sparking an interest in acquiring additional members. After talking to friend and neighbor, William Powell (Bass), the two decided to add him to the band. While constantly practicing and writing, the newly formed trio proceeded to form a sound they could call their own.

By 2007 the group began performing at coffee shops and local parties. Jon's coworker, Laetitia Wilmot (Drums), heard the group play at a party and immediately formed a bond with the musicians. Coming from a formally trained musical background, Wilmot joined the group in 2008 and brought Pawnshop's acoustic sound to a new, full level. With the new addition, the band was now able to play as a full set, enabling them to play shows at larger venues. In the Summer 2009, the band played their first show as a four-piece band at Propaganda in Lake Worth, Fl. The performance went off without a hitch; which ignited a brand new slew of local and non-local venue possibilities. Sean Rahill (Guitar), a close friend of the band’s, was asked to join shortly after, taking over rhythm guitar and enabling Bobby to be a more of an active front-man. The band went on to pack the house at Largopalooza in Key Largo in March of 2010, garnering them further recognition and a name drop on a popular South Florida radio station (Big 105.9). The band has continued to play shows around the Broward and Miami-Dade County area, attracting more fans with their original sound and vibe. They are currently working on their first EP release in hopes of earning more media attention and label recognition.
