Save Ferris tour dates
Remnants of several Orange County, Calif., bands that called it quits in the mid-'90s, the eight-man ska punk band Save Ferris (a nod to the 1986 comedy Ferris Bueller's Day Off) has played the Vans Warped Tour, Reading Festival, Ozzfest and the Lowlands Festival, and will take to the road again in 2017.
Save Ferris background
After gaining considerable attention in Southern California, Save Ferris released its full-length debut, It Means Everything (1997), which went platinum. Modified brought more recognition two year later and was supported by several tours, but by 2003, the group had all but disbanded. It would be 10 years before lead singer Monique Powell reformed the group.
Save Ferris biggest hits
Both studio albums from Save Ferris have landed on the Billboard 200 chart. It Means Everything, in fact, climbed to No. 75. This success was fueled by their cover of the Dexys Midnight Runners hit "Come on Eileen," which rose to No. 26 on the Alternative Songs charts. Their single "The World is New" gained widespread acclaim when it was featured in Mark Wahlberg's film The Big Hit.
Other songs of note are "I Know," which was featured on the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack, and a live version of their song "Goodbye." The latter landed the group back on the alternative singles charts at No. 32.
Save Ferris noteworthy awards
Save Ferris has received Grammy recognition. In 1996, they were honored with a Grammy Showcase for being the best unsigned band.
