GI9 - an idea that once sat on a couch in a few people's minds - is now manifesting itself faster than anyone thought possible -especially the band.

Once the idea was set, the project just needed a name. The name GI9 has and will always be accredited to an upset four-year old in Fairfax, Virginia. The band name was brought forth when she took a sharpie and ruined a brand new drum head by writing in very large lettering 'P I G' on the surface. With the deed done, adding insult to injury she lifted the head in the air for all to see. Holding it up backwards so she could read it, there it sat in big bold letters, 'G I 9.' She proudly pronounced 'Pig!'

With a direction - and now a name - the band began. After a few lineup changes, the band was finalized and sits five strong with Ron Thayer on vocals and guitar, Ryan Whitmore on lead guitar, Scott Kingsley on bass, Justin Wilson on drums, and Aaron Forbes on the keyboard. Practices began and the band gained confidence for their first show. Gi9 was given an opportunity to start off with a big name in the industry and was directly supported by the mult-platinum band Nelson. When Gi9 first took the stage, hit the first chords, after the first song the crowd knew that this was not the stereotypical local band.

The family began growing - people began asking just who GI9 was. The more people looked, the more they discovered about Gi9. The band played many shows in the D.C. metro area, looking to spread their sound. They've done it all, from headlining at Jammin' Java to opening for bands such as The Road Ducks, Gojira, The Agonist, Threat Signal, (hed)PE, Powerman 5000, Thy Will Be Done, Mushroomhead, Carbomb, The Chariot, Sponge, DRI, Bam Margera, LA Guns, and many others!!
