Boat Race Weekend Bio:
Jay and Evan met in kindergarten and quickly became best friends. Evan began playing guitar in elementary school, and when middle school rolled around he mentioned to Jay that they should start a band so Jay picked up drums. The two jammed together all throughout middle school and high school. Evan and Jay became good friends with Collin in high school. When graduation came, Evan went away to St. Martin's in Lacey, WA and Jay went to Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA while Collin finished his senior year of high school in Pasco, WA.
Evan transferred to Gonzaga his sophomore year and Collin decided to go to Gonzaga as well. Jay was the very involved with another band, Scenic Roots, at the time. The following year, Scenic Roots seemed to be coming to an end and the three began talking about playing music together. When Gonzaga's coffeehouse coordinator needed a band to play with very short notice, she contacted Evan because she heard of his weekly performances in a bar in Florence, Italy where he had studied abroad. The three threw nine covers together in a week and decided on the name Boat Race Weekend. Thus BRW was born.
