WHAT IS THE PANDA CONSPIRACY?
"Best PNW band! Loved every show I ever got to see: be it at The Jet, Zombie Prom... Hell, even Twisp's Medicine Wheel. I MISS THEM!!!" - R.G.
Originally started back in 2004 by a group of pals fresh out of Bothell High School, The Panda Conspiracy quickly built a serious fan base. Known for kicking out the jams at festivals and clubs from San Francisco to Bellingham, The Everett Herald called us a "high energy party band" around 2007 and we've fully embraced that vibe!
With a few different lineups all bringing killer grooves over the years, we threw a party everywhere we played. But all was not right in the world: our brother and founder TJ Berry fell ill, eclipsing his musical prowess. Without TJ sharing the spotlight, The Panda Conspiracy made the tough decision to hibernate. (We know: panda bears don't actually hibrenate... But this one did!)
The Seattle music scene eventually suffered the devastating loss of TJ, who joined the ancestors in 2019. After soul-searching conversations with TJ before he passed — and amongst ourselves over the years, we've decided the time is right to reemerge and bring the party back.
