Bio: Noted as the 2nd best band in Portland, 8-FOOT TENDER stems from Long Beach and Los Angeles legends such as The Humpers, Falling Idols, Busface, and The Charms. 8-Foot Tender was started in the spring of 1994 by Mike Moe, Greg Odell & Glen Brunton. Saul Koll (then in The Charms) recomended Jeff Fieldhouse to join up in early 1995 to make the band a 4 piece. Mike Moe then departed in 1997, taking the band back to a 3 piece. Saul Koll then joined winter of '99...thus another 4 piece. The name 8-Foot Tender was coined by Mike Moe after his adventures on the high seas. The name continues to represent the band as a 'life line', each member working hard to keep the pure spirit & soul of rock alive & well underneath a sea of phonies fabricating jaded & pretentious music, clogging ninety percent of the general public's mental capacity.
