Founded by Brad Wait in December 2005, the band hails from Marin County, just north of San Francisco, California. The band features songs written by Brad and bassist Rich Recker that are eclectic and fit well in pop, alternative, and Americana genres. Pleasure Trip songs are melodic and dynamic with catchy hooks, compelling lyrics, and intricate arrangements. The band mixes current day angst and power pop energy, delivering driving chord arrangements and melodies reminiscent of 60s pop and guitar-based modern rock. Listening to the band is like spending time with a good friend who reveals deep secrets and passions, and perhaps gives you advice you may not be ready to hear. You will find yourself singing along as if the experiences they share are indeed your own.
