Not your momma's kind of punk band

Mistaken? Who the hell are they?

Mistaken is an up and coming local punk band from SoCal. They're a group of three high school boys who came together early this year in hopes of making you rock out like whoa.It all started @ Beverly Hills high school on a bright and sunny California day. Drummer Dash Borenstein was sitting quietly in the back of Mr. Farmer's band room when all of a sudden Mistaken bassist and lead singer Ben Zuiderweg jumped up out of his seat and started a revolution. Now, exactly what that revolution is about is still unknown, but it was a revolution nonetheless. The two became friends and soon thereafter, Dash was introduced to guitarist Oren Soffer.The guys got along great and in that band rehearsal room history was made.Unfortunately, after three great shows, the heat was just too much for Dash, and he left the band on good terms. Replacing him is a new revolutionary named Eric, who I'm sure will help pave the way for the sake of punk music everywhere...


9/8: Mistaken's New Drummer named!: It is official, everyone-- the guys have chosen Eric, formerly of the band Sweet Sorrow to replace former drummer Dash Borenstein. The band has been reheasing and writing new material, hopefully to be brought to all you spiffy people real soon. Keep checking out the shows page for possible updates, as well as the band bios page for the low-down on Eric.

9/3: New Drummer confirmed The guys are currently working with a new drummer, who will remain nameless for the time being. Be sure to keep checking out the site for up-to-date info about possible shows and stuff.

8/31/: New Line-up: The band would like to thank all of the cool kiddos who made it out to the Knitting Factory show last week! If you couldn't make it, you missed one hell of a show indeed. It was drummer Dash Borenstein's last show with the band, which was a sad event indeed, but not as sad as the fact that a very close friend of the band (John) moved away to New York earlier that day. "System's Corrupt" was dedicated to him and his presense was greatly missed. [Thanks for being awesome John! oi oi oi! ]
