The Pink Pajamas started in 2009 when Zander Yates, Alaia D'Alessandro, and Alan Ismach got together with the common interest to make some music. Alaia sought to write lyrics akin to those of Joe Strummer. Classically trained Alan, and Drum savvy Zander persued a instrumental sound influenced by The Arctic Monkeys, and White Stripes.
For some time Sean Crutchfield, a good friend of theirs, played bass in the band. Realizing that the band didn't feel right for him, he stepped out. Now searh of a new bassist, the Pajamas grabbed Isaac McDonald in his high school freshman year 2010. Almost immediatly he became an essntial part of the band, writing songs, and earning the nickname "Baby Goat" for his soft blonde hair.
In early 2011, Devin Wear joined as the band's permanent guitarist and solidified the band with his innovative bluesy punk songwriting. He immediately clicked with the band, being friends already with Isaac, Alan, and Zander.
The Pink Pajamas are friends first, and bandmates second. We are always trying new things, like the formula Slap Bass+Slide Guitar=Great, and things like Go-carting down a hill at 12:00 at night. Every member brings a different style to the band, and we incoorperate these styles into our music. To name a few we have: Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Alternative, Punk, and Funk.
