Indecision made their official nightclub debut in 1984 at the Mineshaft Cellar in Charlottesville, Virginia. However, they began performing together in 1980 while attending high school, and in 1983 they began rehearsing regularly as “Indecision.” Aaron Evans (guitar and vocals), David Ibbeken (guitar and vocals), Craig Dougald (drums and vocals), Shawn McCrystal (bass)Dan McCrystal (sound engineer), initially formed Indecision in Charlottesville, VA.
Doug Wanamaker (keyboards and vocals) performed with Indecision for about a year prior to officially joining in 1989. Chris White (acoustic guitar and vocals) also began sitting in with Indecision as early as 1987, and officially joined the band at the beginning of 1990 to complete Indecision’s unique sound.
For the first several years, Indecision played primarily in Virginia, the Carolinas and the DC area, during which the band members attended college.
