The Menus

The Menus were formed in 1983 in drummer Brandon Ryan’s family basement, on the west side of town in Cincinnati, OH. The lineup consisted of Brandon on the drums, Mark Wills on the bass, and Steve Perrman on guitar and vocals. Although at this very early stage of development, the trio never actually performed at a paying gig, bigger and better things certainly lay ahead. Without any better ideas, “The Menus” name developed due to the hundreds of collected menus from restaurants frequented by the band, which now were plastered and taped to their P.A equipment, so the stories told.
