The Free Agents (Bergenline Band) originated sometime in January 1997 with founding members Angel Davila, Bruce Sierra, Fernando Gonzales, Jose Gonzalez, and Oscar Gonzalez. Over the next 4 years in their time at the town of West New York's high school: Memorial High School, the band embarked on a journey of musical challenges involving the attempt of creating an album by 2001. Due to obstacles and schedules, the band overall did not achieve making an album as they wanted due to founding member , Fernando Gonzales, was forcefully transferred to a high school known as Saint Joseph of The Palisades; Thus negatively impacted the band's musical direction and organization. Fernando attempted numerous times to transfer back to MHS Memorial but was unfortunately denied which led him to 4 constraining, unproductive, and isolating years. The Band attempted to remain intact with Angel Davila and Bruce Sierra as the leaders while new talents such as Erwin Armijos, Steven Perez, and Miguel Mora joined on some collaborations. By 2001, the band graduated and managed to have performed songs at Memorial High School despite band members performing separately.
