Style: Showoff is best described as Pop/Rock at its best. They have the typical catchy
hooks that you would expect from a band in this genre to go along with a unique
vocal styling that only Chris Messer could duplicate.
History: Showoff was started in 1997 in Villa Park, IL. Showoff has toured with the likes of The Rx Bandits, Allister, Goldfinger, Marvelous 3, Citizen King, Everclear, The Starting Line, Lucky Boys Confusion, Further seems forever, Element 101, Home Grown, Student Rick, The Blood Hound Gang, Midtown, and many many more... have done the warped tour in 1999, 2000, and 2001. They released their first cd with Maverick records in 1999 and subsequently recorded a record that was never released with producer Mark Trombino (Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182). Showoff has reformed in late 2005 and is now out and playing once again. With a renewed enthusiasm and drive to write music and tour, Showoff is back and has recently released their "Waiting for you" EP on Pacific Ridge Records.
