|It was the summer of 2003 and MP3.com's active message board community was heating up as well -- with flame wars.
Along came Chaz Fanaro, looking to cut through the negative noise. He began to interview many of the musical artists who pitched a tent on the popular indie music forum. Others pitched in with questions of their own. July of 2003 could have turned ugly, but thanks to the interviews blanketing the forum, it became a home for insight and mutual respect.
The forums were wiped clean by Vivendi in December, 2003. The interviews live on.

Stacks Getaway was formed at Western Washington University. The five members, Mike Mostert, Brad Stirling, Scott Dusek, Adam Brown and Zach Miller all agreed that it was time to play some original music that would surely move a crowd. With this idea in mind, Stacks Getaway was born. A funk band at heart, Stacks G's music is founded on the principles of originality and the ability to entertain. "The minute we start sounding like everything else is the minute we give up music."-Stacks Getaway

Stacks Getaway, this is a strange name for a band. How did this name become the groups name?
Well, it is multifaceted in its origins. The primary reason stems from the movie Goodfellas, which is a favorite of all members. If you've seen it, it should make sense. It also has roots in that we met in the Ridgeway Stacks (Western Washington University housing complex) and music is our getaway from the bullshit in life. Plus, it just sounds funky. -Adam Brown, guitar
