There’s a little buzz going around that Save Ferris is playing the OC Fair. Word on the street is that this is inaccurate it is just Monique and her band.

We’ll let you know as we learn more about it, but for now, don’t get too excited.

 

**UPDATE**

Here is the official word from the rest of the former band members:

ORIGINAL “SAVE FERRIS” BAND MEMBERS DEBUNK ANNOUNCEMENT OF “REUNION SHOW”

Anaheim, CA, April 9, 2013 – To Our Fans: It was brought to our attention that on or about April 8, 2013 Monique Powell, the former singer for the band “Save Ferris,” announced that a Save Ferris “reunion show” would be taking place at the Orange County Fairgrounds on July 27, 2013. We feel it is important that fans of the band Save Ferris know that this is NOT a reunion show and the show will NOT include any original or former Band member other than Monique Powell. We have not authorized Monique Powell to perform under the name Save Ferris and the original and former Band members regret any confusion to our fans that may be caused as a result of any misleading statements or marketing materials disseminated by Ms. Powell or any other parties connected to this concert engagement. From what we can infer by the marketing and advertising materials we have seen thus far, this engagement is simply a Monique Powell performance of Save Ferris material accompanied by various musicians, who are unknown to the Band.

Due to the large number of inquiries we have received about this subject matter, we felt it was appropriate to release this statement to better clarify the participants of this event so that the public and our loyal fans can make an informed decision regarding whether to attend the event.

Although we would like to perform an actual “reunion show” at some point in time featuring the original and former Band members, we would like to take this opportunity now to thank all of the Save Ferris fans who have continued to support our music and the Band over the years. Thank you!

***UPDATE 2***

Brian Mashburn did an interview with OC Weekly that goes into a little more detail. It also contains the following statement from Monique:

Apologies for not posting something sooner, I came down with a nasty case of the flu last night…

So the pre-sale tix went up this morning and based on the FB messages I’ve received, a lot of you took advantage! Thank you so much, this is going to be a great show!

Just to clear up any misinformation that may be out there — while I had hoped this could be a reunion of sorts with all, or some, of my former SF band members, unfortunately that isn’t the way it looks to be turning out. Some of my former band mates are currently in a band of their own which they are fully committed to and which I completely respect. While I am certainly disappointed that they won’t be joining me, I wish them all the best always.

Ok, so back to the show — i’m getting together a great group of musicians who are my friends and we are going to put on the best show ever! It’s been 10 years since I’ve performed these songs and recently I had major spinal surgery. Because of great doctors and physical therapy, I am feeling like a miracle. I am able to walk and to sing and I have finally recovered and I can’t WAIT to put on the best show for you guys…thanks for sticking around and for continuing to support me and my music.

I’ll see you all in July at the Fair!

Mo.

An awesome show, and a few pictures to capture the glory. Hooray For Our Side, The Long Holidays, The Originalites, Suburban Legends, some awesome shirts on the wall, and a special photo set up by the one and only Matt King!

Lots of live footage of the music, the karaoke contest, and an interview with SL to come! Keep a look out.
