Down Side Up:
Down Side Up was formed in 2006 by 5th graders: Ryan Mankin, Aaron Mankin, and Joe Lawler in order to blow Immaculate Conception’s student body’s mind at the 5th grade talent show. The show would go down infamously in history and Down Side Up’s journey would begin. Joe Lawler soon after parted ways, but will always remain a founding member. In order to prepare for the 7th grade talent show Ryan and Aaron would join forces with friends Jason Kremer (lead guitar) and Adam Buhr (bass). This team in fact did go on to nail their talent show performance and make several house party, birthday, and county fair appearances. Freshmen year of high school the band once again parted. Aaron Mankin and Ryan Mankin were soon introduced to Helias High School Senior, Hunter O’Donnell, bass player. The three of them and guitarist Jason Kremer once again prepared for yet another talent show but their audition was denied. Ryan Mankin, Aaron Mankin, and Hunter O’Donnell, the current lineup, began their long jouney of vengeance, delving deep into themselves and harnessing their Rock n’ Roll chakra. The trio began playing bars/music venues in 2013 at such establishments as the Mission in Jefferson City, MO and later the Bridge in Columbia, MO, now located in Jefferson City. Down Side Up released their first EP “Down Side Up”, recorded and produced by Pete Szkolka Music Productions, in March of 2015. The band has since released three singles: “Hollow Street”, “50 Reasons”, and “Jibberish”, recorded and produced by Jack Gue with Winksigh Recorders formerly known as Meth Lab Recording Studio. The boys of Down Side Up play their original music as well as classic rock and 90s covers all over Jefferson City and Columbia, Missouri, and are always working on new material which they hope to release in the future.
