Band Bio

BOXCAR WINO - The Legend!

Boxcar Wino rocked, tearing up all the small clubs in the early 90's! Landon Jackson's amazing leads and Richard August Zaydel's smokin' bass lines were heavily influenced by early OC punk like the Adolescents and bands such as the Descendents, English Dogs and early Metallica. Nolan Thomas helped incorporate a blues feel to all this as Box Car Wino's frontman.

The band initially started out with an entirely different line up some where around the very late 80's or early 90's with Paul Bush and other local musicians.

Eventually, Paul went off to start one of many bands and some where along the line the band switched names to Greenhouse. With Paul gone, the band took a slightly different direction, being more blues oriented with Nolan Thomas as front man.

Greenhouse was Nolan Thomas (Lead vocals,rhythm guitar), Chris Patton (bass) Landon Jackson (lead guitar,backing vocals) and Kelly Heard (drums).

Eventually, Chris Patton left the band, which left an opening for Rich Zaydel. Nolan gave Rich a tape of the music and asked Rich to learn a song or two for the next practice/audition.

Kelly was skeptical of Rich's ability, but the whole band's concerns were put to rest when Rich played not one song perfectly, but went through their whole set perfectly.

Rich and Landon were old friends and had played together in another band (GOFT, also with Paul Bush), so they were able to influence the others to play a little more punk influenced music. Around this time is when the band switched its name back to Box Car Wino.

Eventually, Kelly Heard left the band, finding the band leaning more toward a punk edge rather than blues/rock were he had initially started with the band.

This brought in Jeff Law for the final drummer. Jeff was a raw talent and great punk drummer. The final line up were all friends in high school and had all played together through the OC punk scene at one time or anther.

Be sure to check out the live footage on youtube that no one know existed! Links below!
