ABOUT THE BAND
SIDE DEAL is a band of four friends from various performing and touring bands who have come back to their hometown of Newport Beach to rekindle a love of music. Charlie Colin (Founding Member of TRAIN), Stan Frazier (Founding Member of SUGAR RAY), and Joel & Scott Owen (Founding Members of PawnShop kings) have known each other for many years but never played music together.
That changed one night in 2016 when Charlie called Stan to come down and jam with him at the Lido Theater in Newport when his band, Painbirds, was performing with Skunk Baxter (The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan) to a sold-out crowd. Stan invited Scott & Joel that night which resulted a month later in the two of them collaborating at the follow up show where SIDE DEAL was born.
In this spirit of collaboration, SIDE DEAL exists not only to reshape and play the hits from the former projects alongside all new originals, but to maintain an ever-revolving door of friends from bands loved around the world to join in on the fun.
