who is ...as is?
…AS IS is a rock band based in Columbus, Ohio. The band took the scene by storm in 1999 and immediately started performing at all the major venues in Columbus.
They won the Greater Columbus Music Awards’ “People’s Choice Award”, headlined Comfest, opened for Men At Work, Fuel, Living Color and shared the stage with Barenaked Ladies, Tonic and Sixpence Non The Richer.
Their debut EP was recorded at the legendary studio in Brooklyn, Mission Sound (All American Rejects, Taking Back Sunday) with engineer Peter Keppler (David Bowie, Katy Perry, Nine Inch Nails) and received national commercial and college radio airplay. Singles, “Last Time” and “Convertible” were both featured on MTV shows “Undressed” and “Making the Video”.
Their official CD release show at the Newport Music Hall was SOLD OUT getting the attention of every major record label in the country. They went on to sign with David Margolis (Radioactive Records, My World Productions) and entertainment attorney Todd Rubenstein (Perez Hilton, Nelly).
Their journey was cut short due to the events of 9/11 and the band disbanded shortly after.
For the first time in over 10 years, …AS IS reunited and performed on the stage where it all began, Victory's in the Brewery District.
Now, ...AS IS returns with their legendary, high-energy rock show and new music set to come out in 2024
