Interview with Save Ferris

Event Date: 
Friday, April 7, 2023 - 2:00pm

Tune in on Friday, April 7th @ 2PM to hear Pacifica speak with singer, Monique Harris, of Southern California ska-punk veterans, Save Ferris, ahead of their show at The New Parish in Oakland on Friday, April 14th.

Save Ferris is a ska-punk band formed in Orange County, California circa 1995. Their name is a reference to the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Led by the inimitable front-woman Monique Powell, the band enjoyed mainstream success in the late 1990s with radio hits, constant touring and appearances on a variety of television shows and movies.

The future is as bright as it has been for Save Ferris in a long time.  Powell scrapped a record she wrote prior to the pandemic and is currently at work on the first new Save Ferris album in nearly two decades.

The band recently packed the House Of Blues in Anaheim, playing in front of fans of all ages. Powell is the centerpiece of the action. Her dazzling onstage presence continues to wow audiences and the band’s energy is infectious. Save Ferris are out to prove that they’re no nostalgia act, with their best days still ahead of them.
