Pop-punk band Moosejaw began as a social experiment mandated by the local court system. In the summer of 2011 four men faced a peculiar circumstance. In lieu of community service and anger management classes, they opted to serve their community with the gift of music. Moosejaw was born.
The plan was to give these men a positive avenue for their pent up frustration and anger. Feelings that Craigslist Rants and Raves and Yelp no longer subdued.
The plan was to give these four men a chance to give back and reap the benefits of charity. Little did they know that they had created a monster. The plan was flawed.
The band includes Beside Myself drummer Ziggy Pelayo, of Another Zeke Productions and La Escalera Records.
