Basketball Shorts Bio:
After the dissolution of the purposefully short-lived Summer Time Fun Band, guitarist Ben Shorts was looking for another project that would capture the fun, vital energy of the Austin, Texas house party scene. Joining forces with best friends bassist Daren Shorts III and drummer Casey Jones, Basketball Shorts was born out of a passion for rocking hard and drinking lots of Lone Star.
After two cassette releases and citing personal reasons, Jones moved to North Texas. Basketball Shorts, on the heels of recording a new record, recruited touring buddy Adam Sharp on drums (ex-Those Howlings) and Ben Chinisci (ex-Pretty Alright) on lead guitar to fill out the sound. Armed finally w/ a dual guitar attack, Basketball Shorts now plays their mid-tempo party punk with a rejuvenated and updated vigor.
