Official Website of The Whereabouts Rock Band
San Clemente Official Music Video
The Whereabouts are the kind of act it’s hard to write about, but easy to enjoy: A straight-ahead rock band, rooted in album-oriented classic rock and all that classic rock itself is rooted in. Whether they know that or not.
Formed late in 2012 in Laguna Niguel, California, The Whereabouts have played the run of West Coast venues where clubgoers still show up to listen than to be listened to, to see rather than be seen. These four guys — Christopher “CJ Hazard” Griffith, bassist Timothy “Timmy VG” von Gremp, drummer Andy “The Andimal” Gardikas, and guitarist Andrew Talley — have at least six feet of hair between them. But poseurs they are not.
At a time when rock’n’roll has become an ironic term, and bands have been replaced by wannabe celebrities whose live appearances are scripted marketing events, The Whereabouts want to remind you what rock music was all about in the first place: Not an onramp to Hollywood, but a road trip to wherever we end up.
