|Name: Jonathan Lee Siebels
Jon grew up in La Crescenta with parents who were both working musicians and by high school he had started a band with his friend Max Collins called "Yakoo." While friends were flipping burgers and doing homework, Collins and Siebels (plus a drummer with whom they later parted ways) were writing songs, practicing, and playing gigs at coffeehouses, parties, and bars where they were too young to buy a drink.The group morphed into "Eleventeen," added Tony Fagenson, changed their name again to "Eve 6" and spent the next 7 years touring and making records. "Eve 6" by the way took the name from an episode of "The X-Files" in which a psych ward patient bites her guard's eyeball right out of its socket. "Eve 6" disbanded in 2004 and Jon joined up with Eric Gardner in the band "Monsters are Waiting" (http://monstersarewaiting.com) and usually plays bass with "The Motels" (though depending on the situation he also plays lead guitar, drums and keyboard). I understand his scrabble playing is pretty good.
