Serial Joe was a Canadian band from Newmarket, Ontario which consisted of high school students Ryan Dennis (vocals, guitar), Ryan Stever (guitar), John Davidson (bass guitar) and Dan Stadnicki (drums). The group released four full-length albums. They were the house band on YTV's System Crash, and won the 1998 Much Music Video award for best independent video ("Skidrow"). In 1999, the band released their first studio album, Face Down, which peaked at No. 47 on the Canadian Albums Chart. The album's first single, "Mistake", gained international airplay, taking the band to venues as far as Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. The band won several awards, and were given the honour of performing at Woodstock 1999 in the "emerging artists" tent. In the early 2000s, they were dropped from their label and broke up shortly thereafter. Vocalist Ryan Dennis and guitarist Ryan Stever are now part of the hard rock group High Kapitol.
