Seven Car Pileup was a groove-based rock band from Tempe, Arizona. It has heavy roots in old-school funk and a small hint of jazz. The band consists of Mark Mason (vocals/guitar), Jess Pruitt (bass), and Mike Vigil (drums). Their name is taken from the TV show Scrubs.[1]

History[edit]

Seven Car Pileup self-produced their debut album in a home studio in a house they all lived in.[1] The self-titled album was released in late 2008.[2]

The band recorded an EP with Music Producer Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket studios in Mesa Arizona in March 2009. The song Drive-In from their EP was the FM102x song of the day on June 23, 2009.[3]

Seven Car Pileup opened for Authority Zero at the 2009 ASU Polytechnic Home Coming,[4] Cage the Elephant at the Marquee Theatre, and The Crash Kings.
