People often ask out loud, “Angela, how many bands are you in right now?” This post will answer this question.

As of today, the number of bands is:

5

They are:
Preggy Peggy and the Lazy Babymakers
Negative One
Grizzler
Moshi Moshi I Am the Decider
Angela Sawyer/Michael Rosenstein/Jesse Collins

Preggy Peggy is a solo project, which is currently a rather odd mix of comedy and improvised jazz. It began as a duo with James Apt (Six Finger Satellite) in the late 90s. Or maybe it was the early 00s? A long time ago, anyhow.

Negative One is a hardcore band. Angela is the vocalist & there’s also Shawnie on guitar, Sam Potrykus on bass & Nick Neuberg on drums. It began in 2015 & will kill you.

Grizzler is a longstanding large ensemble for improvised jazz, & has up to 20 performers. It is run by Dave Gross.

Moshi Moshi I Am the Decider is a project set up expressly to play the worst possible sound you can imagine. Members include Dave Gross, Polly Hansen, Vic Rawlings & Angela. It began around 2000?

Michael, Jesse and I have a jazz trio. We sound like this.

Past bands include but are not limited to:
Duck That, Exusamwa, Bad Telephone, Party Waters, Pig Sex, The Life Partners, the Phenomenological Boys, Les Garcons Sur La Plage, Christmas Morning, Byron Jimmy & Gerard, the Human Hairs, Sunshine Sanitarium, The White People, Blue Oyster Cult Dot Com, plus many, many other fantasy bands, bands that recorded one song for a specific release, & so on.
