Funky rock band FuseBox (no relation to the same-named contemporary southern gospel band or the Fresno, CA-based AC/DC tribute) was founded in 1992 by Grossmont High School grad Jason Thomas (Manganista) and Dustin Norberg, later joined by players including Steve Moore (TapWater), Mike Ruggirello (Dark Lumen), and Steve Anderson.
Jason Thomas’ song “Pretty Eyes” appeared on the 2012 La Mesa band compilation Picture Head, on the Quasi Recording label.
