The Maria Staump Band is a newly developed group that started working together in late April of 2008. The band consists of Maria Staump on vocals and rhythm guitar, her husband Tim Staump on drums, Dan Scott on bass, and Joel Tuttle on lead guitar. Each musician maintains individual projects, but has also come together to form the Maria Staump Band. All the music performed by the band was written by Maria, but each member adds their own style and originality to her music to give songs their own unique sound. The music that is created by the Maria Staump Band is a blend of different styles: rock, blues, latin, punk, country, hip hop, folk, and alternative. The band's music is uplifting, humorous, honest, opptumistic, and discusses real life emotions and experiences. Their first performance together was on June 18th, 2008 at the San Diego County Fair. Since then they have also performed at the 2nd annual Rock the Gaslamp show, in Downtown San Diego, hosted by Staump.com. The Maria Staump Band is also currently working towards recording their first album together later this year.
