Name Taken was a pop-rock band from Orange County, California and formed while the group was still in high school. The main lineup included Chad Atkinson (Vocals/Bass), Ryan Edwards (Rhythm Guitar) and Blake Means (Lead Guitar). While they were active, they had three different drummers; Bret Meisenbach, Danny Valencia, and most recently, Juan Pereda, who did not perform on any records but played their live shows. Before embarking on a planned European tour, the band split up in 2005. On May 5th and 6th, 2007, they reformed shortly to play back-to-back shows at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA. Paul Riscalla, formerly of Dead Letter Diaries, played drums for the show. Both nights sold out. Despite playing some newly written songs, the shows were a one-time event and the band currently has no plans to continue. Atkinson and Means are currently attending a Cal State University at Fullerton while Edwards is attending U.C. Berkeley.
