ABOUT THE BAND
Ghostbox was formed in 1997 by friends at Washington College who had previously played in two other campus bands, Who-Hash and Jazz Incubus. The six members--Mike Buccino, Ted Knight, Greg Parent, Tim Parent, Dermot Quigley, and Andrew Stein--came from diverse musical backgrounds, ranging from psychedelia, alternative, reggae, funk, jazz, and electronic music. The Ghostbox sound revolves around chordal harmonies and layered, textured melodies. Our influences include Radiohead, Thievery Corporation, The Allman Brothers, Talking Heads, and Victor Wooten, among others.
Ghostbox has been featured on 103.1 WRNR, and played consistently in the DC-Baltimore-Annapolis area at various venues, as well as up and down the east coast, in New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Delaware, and Virginia. Among the great bands we've shared the stage with include: The Disco Biscuits, The String Cheese Incident, Guster, Fighting Gravity, Jimmie's Chicken Shack, Strangefolk, among many others. Four members of Ghostbox later formed another band called Astralyte, focusing primarily on electronic music. Astralyte wrote and performed the theme song for Metro Connection, featured on Fridays at 1:00 pm on WAMU, 88.5 FM.
