Members: Tawni Bates-Vocals, Andy Weaver-Giotar, Bass, Keyboards, Ross Hafler-Bass and Keyboards
SKooBER formed in 2006 as an outlet for the songs of the newly partnered songwriting team of Tawni Bates and Andy Weaver. Although various members have graced the band's live line-up over the past three years, the core of the band is as strong as ever. Their song's combine catchy hooks, strong female vocals, and musical elements of all the best classic, guitar driven power-pop. In 2007 SKooBER made their live debut and signed with Jealousy Records. Their debut album, Say!, followed in September of 2008. The album was greeted with glowing reviews from the major online power-pop websites and blogs (Powerpopaholic.com , Not Lame, Powerpopaction.com...etc). Listener reviews of the album's tracks posted on garageband.com were also fantastic (3 songs posted, all with track of the day and/or week and all with ratings of at least 4.5 out of 5). In May of 2009 the band quickly followed up the success of their debut with a brand new self-titled EP. Working constantly on writing, recording, and performing live is no problem for this Upstate NY power pop duo. "Making music isn't a choice, its a need for us. Its someting we need to be doing. It wouldn't matter if 1 person heard it or 1 million people heard it. We'd still be writing songs and recording them. That being said, we're aiming for the 1 million" says Weaver.
