RIYL: Café Bela, Starcrossed
Fronted by Mark Kramer (Café Bela), the Canton Mudders took their name and inspiration from the cult Joss Whedon TV show Firefly. Other members include Ryan Burdick and Mark and Christina Haemmerle.
The band was mostly inactive from 2013 through 2015, but they staged a reunion performance on March 17, 2016, at the Carriage House in Kearny Mesa. Other occasional performances included a 2019 Comic-Con afterparty.
