Faux Doubt is the Midwest’s preeminent tribute to the music of No Doubt. Hailing from Eastern Iowa with cumulative experience of over three decades, Faux Doubt is a multi-generational group consisting of local music scene veterans, as well as classically-trained talent. What these 5 members share is a passion for the upbeat music of No Doubt – from the 90’s alternative ska-punk classics to the present day hook-laden pop. Faux Doubt covers the entire spectrum of the No Doubt catalog – and does so with the same energy and showmanship fans have come to expect.

Faux Doubt was inspired by tough times in relationships, just as the original No Doubt did to make their chart-topping "Tragic Kingdom" album. In 2018, Ella Goode (Dawn) jokingly said to fellow musician Triston that they should start a Hole tribute band after the influx of tribute bands had hit the scene. He replied, “I’m more of a No Doubt guy, myself.” As the pair discovered the relatability within their separate personal lives, the search for the perfect lineup underwent. Starting with bassist extraordinaire, Cornell Veasey Jr, slowly recruiting members Duroje Gwamna (Trombone) and later adding guitarist Daren Barker. Thus, completing the lineup. By 2019, Faux Doubt: A Tribute to No Doubt was born.
