Biography

Long Beach Shortbus was a reggae-influenced punk band from Long Beach, California. The band consists of four regular members: RAS-1 (lead vocals and guitar), Trey Pangborn (guitar), Eric Wilson (bass guitar) and Damion Ramirez (drum kit). Shortbus originated as a side project of RAS-1 and Eric Wilson, eventually taking shape after the Long Beach Dub Allstars disbanded in November 2001.

The band is something of a Supergroup: Eric Wilson from Sublime and Long Beach Dub Allstars, RAS-1 also from Long Beach Dub Allstars, Trey Pangborn from the Falling Idols and Bargain Music and Damion Ramirez from Capitol Eye. The latter two bands, albeit not as well known, were quintessential Long Beach bands that helped influence the sound of Long Beach Shortbus today.
Their first CD was a self-titled EP and featured their hit “California Grace.” Their second CD was entitled Flying Ship of Fantasy, featuring tracks from their first album. “California Grace” is also available on the soundtrack to the MTV reality series Laguna Beach. Sadly On October 7th, 2007, it was announced that the band will be parting ways. Their final show took place at the Haunted Ball And Chain festival in San Diego, CA, on November 2nd and 3rd.
