TAKEOUT started in 1999 in Daytona Beach, FL. The friends began writing their own material and playing shows all around FL. In 2000, with the loss of drummer Adam and Guitarist Ryan, the remaining two members of TAKEOUT (Guitarist Matt and Bassist/Lead Vocalist J.R.) began playing acoustic shows around Jacksonville. In the summer of 2004 Drummer Mat was added to the band to make the TAKEOUT you now see today. TAKEOUT now plays all over the Orlando, FL area at such places like AKA Lounge, The Social, Backbooth, and The Haven Lounge. TAKEOUT released its first E.P. at The Haven Lounge, Saturday, February 10th, 2007.
J.R. (Bass/Lead Vocals)- Uses Ibanez Basses, Hartke Rigs, Shure Mics and Blue Steel Strings. A very well rounded musician, J.R. also writes the lyrics for their original material, plays guitar and records acoustic tracks.
Matt S. (Guitar) Uses ESP Guitars, Marshall Rigs, Line 6 M13 pedal board, Cry-Baby Wah and Blue Steel Strings. A rhythm guitar powerhouse, Matt has been delving into the great unknown of lead and coming up with added depth to live shows. He is also the main contact for bookings.
Mat S. (Drums) Uses Tama Star Classic Drums, DW Pedals, Zildjian Cymbals and Vader Sticks. A freaking madman behind the kit, Mat has brought a total re-imagining to the band. His footwork, attack, and overall zen like mastermind has always drawn attention from the crowd.
