Where was Mustard Plug originally formed?
is Grand Rapids, MI. Mustard Plug was formed there in 1991 when founding members Dave Kirchgessner and Colin Clive attended
a show and noticed that there was little to no ska music being performed in the area, which allowed the group to carve out
their niche in the local market.
About the Artist
The group Mustard Plug originated in Grand Rapids, MI
in 1991, when Dave Kirchgessner and Colin Clive realized that there was very little ska music being played in the area and
saw it as an opportunity to distinguish themselves from other upcoming local bands. This proved to be stroke of genius, as
often a local music scene can be filled with a host of groups that all have a similar sound due to shared influences and other
factors around the community.
Kirchgessner and Clive teamed up with Mike McKendrick and Anthony Vilchez to form the
original foursome of Mustard Plug. It has been stated that the band's name originates from an instance in which a band member
was using mustard to make a sandwich and noted the crust that forms at the tip of the tube of the condiment and "plugs" it.
the course of a career spanning more than two decades, Mustard Plug has added a multitude of new band members and released
seven albums. They have performed as a part of The Warped Tour two times and toured so much that they had to retire their
faithful tour bus in 2005 with more than 300,000 miles on the odometer.
Mustard Plug broke
through in 1992 with their debut album Skapacolupse Now!. While the album was certainly rough, and released on band member
Dave Kirchgessner's own label, the release was surprisingly popular and made a name for the band. This album paved the way
for the group's subsequent record deals and albums.
People have been coming together to
enjoy live music in cultures around the world for a countless number of years. If you think about it, live music is the true
foundation of music, and really the art's purest form. It can be an epic experience to see an artist in a huge amphitheater
with thousands upon thousands of screaming fans surrounding you, or it can be an intimate experience in a smaller venue in
which you can really connect with everyone in the building. Either way, seeing a concert live always amounts to more than
just listening to music. When you head out to see Mustard Plug hit the stage at a venue near you, you're sure to become enveloped
by the entire experience of seeing a singer that you love while surrounded by fellow adoring fans that have at least that
one thing in common. And often times, when it comes to music, that one thing is enough to bring people together.
something simply incredible about seeing a concert live and in person that keeps people coming back for more. When you see
one of your favorite artists hit the stage in the same building, there's a magnetism that occurs that you can't duplicate
anywhere else. Mustard Plug is known as a top act for a reason, and that's something you'll see for yourself when you head
out to catch a live show on their current tour.
