Still Pacific is a rock band from Minneapolis that loves dark poppy hooks. Their melodies and big sounds will bring you back to the late 80’s and early 90’s. Their influences are The Beach Boys, The Wedding Present, Joy Division and 60’s girl groups. They have been playing out for the past year opening for Red Pens, Pink Mink, Birthday Suits, Gringo Star, The Hounds Below (Von Bondies) and many more.
The band started with Brad and Tracy (who are hitched, by the way). They’re experienced rockers who met playing at a rock n’ roll croquet party and started playing together a couple days later. Between the two of them, they’ve played in a handful of Minneapolis bands: Brown Star, Hicky Party, The Psychedelicates and Rebel Yellow. Their friend Stuart Lysne played drums with them in Rebel Yellow for a while and eventually that band grew into Still Pacific. Tim Ritter joined the band the summer of 2011. Tim was in Shapeshifter, Astronaut Wife, Bella Koshka and currently in Blue Sky Blackout.
