Most of the time when you think of sewers you think of disgusting underground waste systems and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. However, for a few students at Whitehouse, they think of their band, Sewerville.

Sewerville is a Punk/alternative/indie band consisting of juniors Johnny Saigusa and Caleb Moran. Saigusa is the bass player/vocals, Moran is the guitar player, and seventh grader Jack Saigusa, Johnny Saigusa’s younger brother, is the drummer for the band. Sewerville plays at multiple gigs in East Texas and has recently performed in Austin with the Canadian indie-rock band Pre Occupations.

“This past Friday we went to Austin and played with Pre Occupations,” Saigusa said. “We have listened to their music for a long time and it felt like we were playing with our idols.”

The band started by Saigusa and a few other friends, not currently in the band, just hanging out playing in garage for about a year. It soon evolved into a tight knit trio of brothers and friends doing what they do best, making music.

“At first, we started out just messing around in our friend’s garage for about a year or so,” Saigusa said. “We stopped playing for a while, and then me and Caleb started playing again.”

Sewerville mainly plays at Clicks in Tyler and at various DIY shows and events across East Texas. They have also played at Rock the Park in Whitehouse.

“We do a bunch of DIY shows and that kind of stuff around Tyler,” Saigusa said. “We try to keep our events local because we don’t know what the future of our band is going to be.”

After high school, future of Sewerville is uncertain. Neither Saigusa or Moran know where they want to college, so both are just taking things day-by-day.

“I don’t know what we’re really planning on doing, and I don’t know what I’m planning on doing,” Saigusa said. “That’s why we like to live in the moment and have fun being in the band while we can.”
