MistermeaneR formed in March of 1997 in a run down crack house used as a studio in Honolulu. Warren (lead vocals) and Kimo (guitar) played acoustic guitar together in Kimo's house for about a month. Then Warren got the idea to get a couple of other guys together and start a band. He contacted his friends that played in other bands Hanaea, Ken, and Neil, (from the Goodfellas) gave them (Warren and Kimo) the idea of what they wanted to do.

Then came Ken "tool man" to drum, (and Warren's dad has been known to sit in on a couple of sessions on bass). Warren wasn't singing yet, he was playing bass instead, but since he didn't play very well the boys at the rehearsal room said he should sing instead. Then "tool man" left and Warren remembered jammin' a few times with Josh (drums) a while back. He gave him a call and came aboard. Then the boys where at a party and met Ernie (bass), who played guitar on his, own. They guys mentioned that they were looking for a bass player and Ernie responded with "I can play bass", then it started for real.
MistermeaneR had their first show three weeks after getting the final four together and have played many shows since. Including going on tour in September 1998 in Southern California (it went off!) Playing with Absolute and the Dead Lights (formerly Suction), and playing the Vans Warped Tour in Hawaii, "Excellent Experience!" MistermeaneR also has a full length Demo out under Stone Entertainment, a division of the Volcom clothing line. The Demo includes thirteen songs produced by Warren Hassett and MistermeaneR, available for around $10. MistermeaneR is planning on recording another twenty-something song CD when they get the funding.
