Happy 20th Birthday Bowling For Soup! Next year, you’ll be able to drink beer legally in the US 😉
On 4th June 1994, Bowling For Soup officially formed in Wichita Falls by Jaret Reddick, Chris Burney, Erik Chandler and Lance Morrill.
Bowling for Soup has its origins in the small northern Texas city of Wichita Falls, where Jaret Reddick (born March 6, 1972) and other members of the band grew up. Reddick and guitarist Chris Burney (born May 25, 1969) knew each other in high school (they met in 1986), and as students in the 1980s, they grew up on the commercially successful heavy metal music of bands such as Quiet Riot, Ratt and Mötley Crüe, but were also influenced by the zippier punk rock of the Ramones and later Green Day. Burney owned a Wichita Falls coffeehouse “The Refuge,” with a music stage and played there with his first band “The Persecuted”, where he and Reddick met bassist Erik Chandler (born December 22, 1974) and drummer Gary Wiseman (born January 6, 1979) in the early 1990s (although Wiseman wouldn’t come into the band until 1998).
