Jason Gardner -Bass Guitar/ Vocals
My love for music was sparked as young boy by Dave [my dad] and Pony's band, The Regulars. At age 12, I got my first bass and from there that love exploded. Over the next few years I spent countless hours learning to play by ear. Just jamming along with the first couple cd's I ever owned, Rancid: And Out Come The Wolves, Green Day: Dookie, and RHCP: Blood, Sugar, Sex, Majic.
Around the age of 15, my closest friends (including 9M2E Lead Guitarist Jay Neubauer) and I formed the punk/ska powerhouse Red45. We had a solid run for a bunch of crazy teenagers, we even put a few battle of the band titles under our belts. Red45 met its demise when we all went our separate ways to attend college.
After a 8 year hiatus I'm back, sharing the stage with my father and our life long friends on this crazy journey ready to hit the scene harder than ever!
