Founded in Seattle, WA by vocalist and songwriter John Maiello in 2013, and joined later by C.J. Frederick, Jon Oddo and Elliot Thordarson, Dead Bars had a very specific plan to play one show, record a demo, and tour only Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
After four years of playing more shows, recording five 7-inchs released on three different labels in three different countries, and never touring outside the continental United States, Dead Bars released their first LP titled ‘Dream Gig’ on No Idea Records in 2017.
Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, and sometimes you don’t get what you want. Keep On Dreamin.
