Sprouting out of the dawn in Madison Wisconsin, Baghdad Scuba Review is a first-rate model of what the band is attempting to introduce to its listeners: full scale, well disciplined progressive rock. As a six-piece group of uncommonly talented musicians with both entertaining and amusing personalities, this bold group of artists carries impeccable musicianship to spawn a chimerical stage presence and as a newborn band has already embraced a sizeable following.
Baghdad Scuba Review line up:
John Schneider (Bo Duke)- Lead Vox / Rythm Guit.
Chad Thompson (Gonzo)- Lead Guit. / Vox
Erik Riedasch (E)- Bass / Vox
Jason Krueger (Cuz)- Keyboards / Piano
Justin Gerstner (Justin Gerstner)- Drums / Vox
Rob Bloch (Shankar)- Percussion
The band evolved from members of such bands as One Fluid Ounce, Groovulous Glove, Minglewood, The Green Situation, Runga Kutta and The Northern Pines Band.
What started as a group of rotating musicians surrounding John Schneider as "The John Schneider Project" turned into a legitimate band. Once the now known members were recruited, the name was changed to Baghdad Scuba Review.
The Goal of BSR is to stimulate our listeners thoughts, emotions and physical being with feel-good original material.
