Soda Can may have been from New Jersey but as far we're concerned they were North Carolinians. Trip Costner, Fred Mann and Tom Gerridge moved to Winston-Salem and became a favorite band of Wake Forest U frat parties. They spent endless weekends traveling the southeast spreading the Soda Can gospel.
After a few years Fred had to take a break from music for medical reasons. Trip continued on with what became Squatweiler. Fred later joined Squatweiler for their last album "Horsepower.”
