MAINTAIN was formed in the summer of 2001, but the band was conceived 4 years prior when Gino (bass/vox) and Jason (guitar/vox) were introduced by a mutual friend & musician named Dan Hastie (ORGONE). The two instantly recognized each others musical abilities and stylistic chemistry and developed a deep respect & friendship. Soon they began writing and recording demos which started a local buzz. The missing pieces to the puzzle came soon after. They are Joakim (Drums) and Rhassan (Keys/Vox). The combination of unique catchy songs, raw soulful vocals, addictive grooves and over the top musicianship was the sound & chemistry that these 4 musicians and their loyal fans had been waiting for. MAINTAIN is gaining popularity by the second. They are in the studio working on their full length record which should be out by the end of 2004!
