Café Society began in Phoenix, Arizona as The Convertibles in late 1981, formed by Chicago born and raised musician, singer and songwriter Richard Morris.

Originally a power-punk trio, the band featured Morris on guitar and vocals, Burton Korer on bass and Monique Bera on drums. Inspired by local Phoenix bands The Jetzons and Meat Puppets, they played about a dozen live gigs and recorded a seven-song demo at Camelback Studios in 1982. Moving to Los Angeles in June 1982, Morris was joined by bassist Craig Nieves, drummer Ron Weiss and keyboard player Matt Evidon and Café Society was born.
