Cardboard Paradise was origionally formed in Punta Gorda, Florida in 2004 with original members James(Guitar), Travis(Guitar), Bada(Vocals/Melodica), Miah(Bass), and Dilo(Drums). Several years later the group moved to the grand city of Gainesville, Florida,where they would reside for a number of years refining their sound. In 2008 Cardboard Paradise grew by 2, adding Chip, who brought a new energy and precision to percussion, and Kollin, who laced Cardboard Paradise's sound with the smooth stylings of the Baritone & Tenor Saxophone. Then, on a suggestion from Chip in 2009, Cardboard Paradise's sound grew once again with the addition of the high impact sounds of both the Trumpet & Flugelhorn brought by Jesse, to form the band as they are today.
"We would not be the band we are if it wasn't for the families and fans we share such a tremendous love of music with, and all the support, and love, they show."
