Bowling for Soup

Bowling for Soup

Texas-based pop punk quartet comprising Jaret Reddick on lead vocals and guitar, Chris Burney on guitar and backing vocals, drummer Gary Wiseman and Rob Felicetti bass, backing vocals and acoustic guitar.

Reddick and Burney met in high school in Wichita Falls where Burney's family owned a coffeehouse called 'The Refuge', which boasted a music stage, and where he and Reddick first met bassist Erik Chandler and drummer Gary Wiseman in the early 1990s, although the band was not officially formed until June 1994.

The initial line-up consisted of Reddick, Burney, Chandler and Lance Morrill on drums. Morrill subsequently left in July 1998 and was replaced by Wiseman. Chanler himself was replaced in 2019.

Commercially the band enjoyed their greatest success during the first decade of this millennium, but they have continued to enjoy a solid following on this side of the pond ever since.
