An award-winning, California-grown, surf culture band that's established itself as a vital part of the Santa Cruz, CA music scene.
Expendables' distinctive live performances and unique brand of music. Described as an electric mix of genre-bending rock, reggae and surf. It has begun to charm audiences far and wide. Rapidly approaching status as a full-time touring act, the band is a rising star on the West Coast. To date, The Expendables have performed with in-demand musical acts such as Slightly Stoopid and reggae legend Eek-A-Mouse; they have appeared live on the Vans’ Warped Tour; and hosted their own radio show on The Santa Cruz X 103.9 FM. The Expendables landed number one in the Metro Santa Cruz Top 10 list of favorite bands in local music. In addition, Lion Entertainment and Your Music Magazine awarded the group first place in their Battle of the Bands contest in 2002.
The Expendables have five original full-length albums to their credit:
"No Time to Worry" (2001); "Open Container" (2002); "Gettin' Filthy,” (2006) the polished result of a two-month recording stint at Herbie Herbert’s Sy Klopps Studios in San Francisco; "The Expendables" (2007); and their most recent, "Prove It" (2010).
