Former members of the iconic 3rd wave ska band Save Ferris are suing frontwoman Monique Powell over allegations that she falsely promoted an upcoming show as a “Save Ferris Reunion” without anyone else’s permission.
Powell, who was not an original member of the band, made an announcement in April suggesting the group would be reforming for the first time in 10 years at the OC Fair in California on 27 July. Ex-bandmates and original members Brian Mashburn, Eric Zamora, Bill Uechi, Brian Williams and Evan Kilbourne have since come forward and are saying they never approved the show and had no intention of performing with Powell. They have now filed suit in a bid to legally ban her from using the Save Ferris name.
The bandmates are seeking damages for falsely promoting the show. Powell joined the band in 1995 after original singer Adrienne Knolff quit.
