The Reunion Show was a Pop Punk band from Long Island New York that was signed to Victory Records. The band was started in 2000 and disbanded in 2004.
Based out of Long Island, the Reunion Show formed in 2000 after lead singer Mark Thomas and drummer Skully left Step Lively. Adding former members of The Waiting Process and Edna's Goldfish, the group began rehearsing in the New York area. Taking the name from a conversation in La Crosse, WI, the Reunion Show immediately began touring in the tri-state area and eventually throughout the United States.
In 2002, the Reunion Show -- also comprising guitarist Derrick Sherman and vocalist/bassist Brian Diaz -- released their debut EP, The Motion, through Law of Inertia; they signed to Victory Records in May of that year as well.
The full-length Kill Your Television followed that fall. Consisting of crunchy punk riffs with melodic pop, the Reunion Show has been compared to Jimmy Eat World, Elvis Costello, and the Cars. The group also released a video for Kill Your Television, which was directed by Andy Dick.
The video can be viewed here.
Sherman and Diaz had left the band by the early fall of 2003 and were replaced by Adam Manning and Clarke Foley, both formerly of Count the Stars. However, due to the member changes, the Reunion Show eventually dissolved and three-fourths of the remaining members reappeared as Action Action in mid-2004. Derrick Sherman now plays guitar and keyboard in Long Island band, Brand New.
