Blocking Consensus came together in 1998 at Haverford College in Philadelphia. The eight-member group chose their name while debating the merits of the Quaker-based value system integral to their college. Their influences include an eclectic mix of traditional and third wave ska, hard rock, punk, and heavy metal. This mix has developed into a socially conscious party music heard often on area campuses. Members include Brady McCartney on vocals; Sam Edmondson and Jesse Milnes on guitar; Ry Strohm-Herman on bass guitar; Jared Tankel and Danny Zeiger on alto saxophone; Eric Samansky on trumpet; and Elliot Brandow on drums.
