Biography

California, United States (1995 – 2002)

The band formed in 1995 after the dissolution of a number of Southern California third-wave ska bands. Los Pantelones members Brian Mashburn (guitar/vocals), Bill Uechi (bass), Eric Zamora (saxophone), and José Castellaños (trumpet) joined with Larry vocalist Monique Powell, Nuckle Brothers trombonist Brian “T-Bone Willy” Williams, and drummer Marc Harismendy to form Save Ferris, whose name was taken from the John Hughes film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

The band released their debut EP Introducing Save Ferris in 1996. Later that year, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences gave the band a Grammy showcase award for best unsigned band, earning them a recording contract with Epic Records. The band released their debut full length for the label in 1997. It Means Everything featured several re-recorded tracks from the EP, several new songs, and a cover of Dexys Midnight Runners’ “Come on Eileen,” which the band released as a single and was a minor hit. The band also released “The World is New” as a single which was featured in the film The Big Hit as well as being used in Tara Lipinski’s debut program as a professional skater in the 1998 Skate TV Championships.

The band toured extensively in support of the album, opening for bands such as Sugar Ray, The Offspring, and Reel Big Fish, and Powell also provided vocals on the Reel Big Fish song “She Has A Girlfriend Now.” In April 1998, they made their television debut on HBO’s music series Reverb and made an on-screen appearance in the film 10 Things I Hate About You.
