Official: Fern reunites at Randy Bacon Gallery in July

The Way We Were: Fern playing The Attic in the mid-90s. Note the wall mural with the intentionally misspelled name.

The Way We Were: Fern playing The Attic (now The Outland Ballroom) in the mid-90s. Note the (we're guessing intentionally) misspelled wall mural.

We’re going back to the future for this announcement. There was a time–the late ’90s, to be exact–when Fern was The Springfield Band to Watch. Formed in 1995, the band was opening for hot up-and-comers such as The Goo Goo Dolls by 1999 and sharing festival stages with the likes of The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Moby, Our Lady Peace and more by the following year. When drummer Jay Sandidge left in November 2002, the group laid low while trying to find a replacement. That was the last we heard until it reemerged as Rabbit Fighter a few years later, but before we could even get used to a new name it disappeared again. There was talk of re-forming the band a little more than a year ago, but nothing seemed to come to fruition until now. Word just came in from Randy Bacon Gallery Sounds coordinator Justin Woods that the group will play a reunion show at the gallery and photo studio July 25. Woods says he expects to have tickets on sale in early June. We hope to have more details for you in the near future.

    This is wonderful news! I loved that band.

  2. Jason Gaylor Says:

    The rumor is somewhat true. We are planning a show in July with the original members of Fern. The Rabbit Fighter part isn’t quite right. They were a totally different band made from members of Flick and the Rhones.

    Interesting… makes sense, too. Upon inspection, Trevor Thornton is a member of RF. Sure enough. So why such a long disappearance for Fern? Nothing came of the drummer search?

    Thanks for your support fourfour, Fern is back hope to see you on July 25
