Eventually Vinne moved to University of Florida as well. When Chris and Vinnie were reunited they started thinking what to name the band and on July 13 of 1992 Less Than Jake was born.

Formed as a power pop trio with punk influence, Less Than Jake has transformed into a ska-inspired punk band with the addition of the horn section.

Name Origin: two name origins (both could be right, both could be wrong or one could be right, you decide)
1. The name comes from Vinnie Firorello’s dog “Jake” that was treated better than every one in the family thus the name being “Less Than Jake”. In some places it says it is a bird and not a dog. (I think is a dog)
2. Reference to the phrase “Everything is Jake”which is an old phrase meaning “Everything is Cool”.
