Started in Summer 1999 after Sam's Choice broke up. Nick Kroll recommend the name of the solo act be modified slightly. Part of The Old 89ers group.
In the Winter of 2006/07, Sam's Predicament's song "Big Oak Tree" was (without the band's prompting or even knowledge) played on a radio show in Manchester, UK, officially making the band an international phenomenon.
Played several shows at Ralph's, mostly with other Old 89ers bands. Also played a few shows in Tempe and Phoenix, AZ, between 2002 and 2005.
