Ignition was formed around 1992 from a random Craigs list "looking for bass player" ad that hooked up Jim (bass) and Chris (Vocals) and shortly after that Craig on guitar.
Ignition (then called 13th Floor) began writing original music that fused the various members influences which ranged from Gothic to Hard Rock to Fusion. Ignitions initial music included some songs we still play (Talisman, The Latest and Madelina).
Over the years the only member changes we have had are drummers. The same core (Chris-Vocals, Jim-Bass and Craig-Guitar) have been performing together for the duration and our most recent drummer, Tim has been involved with the band for years.
Ignition currently plays both old and new original material that spans many styles and continues to be truly original. We can probably be best characterized as "Alt/Hard rock". We have played many shows over the years. A few venues (all in SoCal) include Hoagie Barmichaels, Friar Tucks, Industrial Lounge, The Loft, Blackwatch Pub, Rude Dog, Granada Theater, Old Town Pub, Grape Harvest Festival, Caseys, Namm Jamm, Sunset Club and most recently Gem City.
Stay tuned, we have plenty of new original music in the works! Writing and performing our own music is a passion for us and we will continue to create!
