Biography

The Expendables' distinctive live performances and unique brand of music, described as an eclectic mix of genre-bending rock, reggae and surf, have charmed audiences far and wide. Now at the status as a full-time touring act, the band is a rising star on the West Coast. To date, The Expendables has performed with in-demand musical acts such as Slightly Stoopid, Pepper and reggae legend Eek-A-Mouse; appeared live on the Vans’ Warped Tour; and hosted its own radio show on The Santa Cruz X 103.9 FM. The Expendables landed number one in the Metro Santa Cruz Top 10 list of favorite bands in local music. In addition, Lion Entertainment and Your Music Magazine awarded the group first place in their Battle of the Bands contest in 2002. The Expendables has three original full-length albums to its credit: "No Time to Worry" (2001); "Open Container" (2002); and the most recent "Gettin' Filthy,” the polished result of a two-month recording stint at Herbie Herbert’s Sy Klopps Studios in San Francisco. Currently The Expendables are in the process of recording their next full length album spread over a few different producers including Miguel of the Sublime / Slightly Stoopid camp and Chris DiBeneditto of the G Love Camp. The new album will be released on the new Independent Label Stoopid Records spear headed by Matt and Jon Phillips with Slightly Stoopid. The album will be released in Spring 2007.
