Blue Ribbon was started by Jon and Steve in 1997 under the name "How to Draw Robotech." This line up featured Steve on guitar and Farfisa as well as vocals and Jon on drums and a little Yamaha keyboard. Dawn Bossman joined the group to play ms-10 and to add some additional vocals. The name was changed to Blue Ribbon and this line up played shows regularly in NYC during 2002. Bryan joined the group in Spring 2003 to play bass; followed shortly by Ben Gworek on drums. This line-up rehearsed and played sporadically through 2003 with half the band living in NYC and half in Providence, RI. During this period Blue Ribbon contributed tracks to three compilations: "Hear You Soon Vol. 1" on Blue Bell Records, "UAC4" on Plastiq Musiq, and "WXJL 2: Music for the Masses" on Ninthwave Records. Blue Ribbon broke up briefly early in 2004.

In Spring 2004 Jon and Steve moved from NYC to Providence, RI and re-formed Blue Ribbon. This is the beginning of the current line-up. The band did play one show under the name "Sky Lion" with a more "rock" feel to the music but decided shortly after to go back to the Blue Ribbon name and sound. Blue Ribbon's sound is a combination of synth-driven melodies, thoughtful arrangements, danceable beats and distinct catchy vocals.
