The Civilians have a long and storied history. Founded in 2007 with a debut show at the Shamrock House in Charlottesville, VA, the original band of Kevin, Pat, Colin, Ryan, and Tyler spread their love of 90s rock for over three years until Ryan and Tyler bid the band adieu in 2010.
Matt and Nathan stepped as the band transitioned from Civilians 1.0 to Civilians 2.0 during the summer of 2010. Four years and one trailer with a 90SROCK license plate later, the band closed their second chapter with a blowout show for the Sigma Chi Bahamas party.
In the Spring of 2014, the band dispersed to the far corners of the US and have reunited for two band member weddings since. They have not officially retired, so the clock has not started ticking for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
