Formed in 2000, the band consists of Tim Walker (guitar, vocals), Graeme Walker (bass, vocals), Dennis Goodwin (guitar, synths, vocals) and Bob Deveau (drums and electronics).

Grand Theft Bus are a sonicly dynamic group with an eclectic blend of songs ranging from pop to prog, heavy and intense to light and fluffy, quirky nonsense to meaningful melodrama.

A mockumentary about the band, Rubarbicon, was filmed by independent filmmaker Greg Hemmings and released in 2006.

The band recorded its 2008 album, Made Upwards, in the main dining room of New Brunswick's lieutenant-governor's mansion.
