JigGsaw is an indie rock band from Champaign, Illinois. The band currently consists of Mark JigGsaw (vocals), Eddie Waldmire (bass guitar), Kyle Prillaman (drums), and Hayden Cler (guitar). Past members include Clint McGraw, DJ DeMoss, and Micheal Hicks

Band history[edit]

JigGsaw first started as a two piece including Clint McGraw and Mark JigGsaw who played dancey punk rock music around clubs in Champaign, Illinois. After three years of playing around the midwest, they added bassist Micheal Hicks (The Respondent) and guitarist Hayden Cler.

Cler and Prillaman went on to form That's No Moon which is a blend of indie rock and electronica.

In the spring of 2005, Playing Field Recordings released Zero Generation.[1]

In 2006, the band performed select dates of the Warped Tour.[2]

JigGsaw's second CD was a self-titled EP mastered by Brian Gardner (My Chemical Romance, The Killers, Green Day); released in 2007 without a label.[3] This release was positively reviewed by major Indie/Punk sites like Absolute Punk. This, combined with the attention created from the Warped Tour, gained the band national recognition thus earning them a mention in national press like Nylon Magazine in November 2007.

In June 2010 JigGsaw released their second full-length album "Vices & Virtues".[4]
