The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


We will be going into the studio sometime in the winter of 2004 to record our first full length CD. We have a 4 song demo that was recorded using our own recording equipment, but it is being used to get us shows and is not for sale.


Feeling a bit camera shy


So what the hell is a Trespassenger?

I don't know for sure, the name came from Todd's eight year old son while they were discussing how sometimes people are where they don't belong. Actually in that context Trespassengers is an ideal name for this band. We aren't a punk band, though we can belt out a few classics if it comes to that. We aren't a country band, not Nashville country anyway. We aren't really a rock and roll band either, too many sad songs and countryish type stuff in our set list. I guess it's just music for folks like you and me. Music for regular folks, songs with lyrics that actually mean something (if you want them to). Music that isn't verbose, or over the top in anyway. Just a few chords strung together that stick in your head, the kind you find yourself whistling days later.

The band is lead by Sam Weight who writes just about all the material. Sam plays guitar and sings. The other guys in the group are Brian Lang on drums, Mike Francisco on bass, and Todd Slater on guitar and backing vocals. Trespassengers don't play many cover songs; some of the material we do cover is from bands like Wilco, Son Volt, Neutral Milk Hotel, and the Eels.
