SQUAB = RIP (1997-2007)

:: For the record.....

As of aug 15th 2007,
ChrisPee has decided to call Squab quits....ChrisPee founded the band in late Dec. of 1997 starting with just 2 members (just bass, drums & guitar-with both members switching back & forth) it grew into a much more involved & extravagant 4 piece which included Bass, 2 drummers, synths, & trombone & dual vocals.
We grew apart musically and decided it would be best to go our separate ways.
We have had a great time (these Almost TEN years!!) & we love our fans & thank you all very much for all of your wonderful support & awesome dancing! It sounds very cliche, but it's true.... We wouldn't be anything with out you!!! so thank you all again.!!
much love!
~Chris


PS- There is some talk of new projects - stay tuned and we'll keep you updated!

We've got the show at the Knitting Factory (main stage) on June 25th (check the show dates) and our Last show for Scutterfest (July 5th), again at the Knitting Factory (I believe at the side stage- alterknit lounge). Then we break for a while to concentrate on recording another full length album. So come out & dance!
