Bend Plug'n'play osnovan je novembra 2002. godine u Novom Sadu. Početnu postavu činili su Goran Beg (gitara/vokal), Zoran Mandić (bas gitara) i Predrag Novković (bubnjevi, ex-Porche Lynn). Posle dva meseca u bend stiže pevač Vasil Tomov – Flipp, dok je Goran ostao zadužen za gitarske deonice i prateće vokale. U početku, dok je trajao period međusobnog muzičkog upoznavanja, bend je svirao obrade. Prvi nastup Plug'n'play je imao na manifestaciji »Larmanje«, aprila 2003. u novosadskom klubu Enter.



Taj koncert označio je i kraj prve faze rada benda i okretanje autorskoj muzici. Bend kreće sa učestalim probama i uvežbavanjem isključivo svojih pesama. U jesen 2003. godine, zbog neslaganja sa muzičkom koncepcijom, Flipp napušta Plug'n'play, što je donekle usporilo razvoj i autorski rad benda. Plug'n'play je nekoliko meseci radio bez pevača, sve dok u februaru 2004. u bend nije stigao Srđan Slankamenac - Slani (ex-Post Scriptum).



Njegov dolazak označio je novi početak rada benda. Nakon perioda uvežbavanja sa novim pevačem, bend počinje da nastupa uživo. Prvi koncert je održan u okviru manifestacije »Saberimo se Novosađani«, 3. oktobra 2004. u klubu NS Time, zatim u klubu Enter u okviru festivala »Inkubator«. Nakon toga usledila je serija svirki, najčešće po novosadskim klubovima, a zatim i u ostalim mestima u Vojvodini. Bend je svirao dosta humanitarnih koncerata, među kojima su i dva unplugged nastupa u okviru akcije »Pusti glas«, koja je bila usmerena na borbu protiv narkomanije.
Februara 2005. Plug'n'play snima svoj prvi demo - »Plug-ins«, na kome se nalaze tri pesme: »Plug'n'play «, »Friend« i »Angel« (obrada Massive Attack). Demo je snimljen u studijima "ZID" u Sremskoj Kamenici i "Digital tone works" u Rumenci. Snimatelj i producent bio je Dragan Alimpijević – Pik. Septembra 2005. godine snimljen je spot za pesmu Plug'n'play koji je prikazan na velikom broju televizijskih stanica, uključujući i MTV Adria. Naredni spot za pesmu "Friend" je premijerno prikazan početkom juna 2006. godine. Nakon toga usledila je serija značajnijih svirki, među kojima su nastupi na festivalu EXIT, String festivalu na Paliću, Blok Rock Fest-u u Novom Sadu i televizijski nastup uživo povodom rođendana MTS televizije. Septembra 2006. godine Plug n Play je u okviru manifestacije »Dani Vojvodine u Istri« nastupio u gradovima Buzet, Pazin i Pula.
Prvi album pod nazivom "Raise Your Voice" izdat je u novembru 2007. za SKC Novi Sad, a sniman je tokom 2006. i 2007. godine u studijima "DUBing", "Road" i "Fluid". Producent i snimatelj je bio Dragan Alimpijević – Pik. Album je dobio ime po humanitarnoj akciji »Pusti glas«, u organizaciji NGO Košnica iz Novog Sada. Nakon izdavanja albuma, usledila je promocija u novosadskom klubu Trema, 2.novembara 2007. Bend snima spot za pesmu "Was it better when it was worse" i koncertno je aktivan. Tokom 2008. Plug'n'Play radi na materijalu za novi album i snima prvih 5 demo snimaka. Početkom 2009. godine Predrag Novković napušta bend, a ostali članovi nastavljaju rad na novom albumu i traže novog bubnjara. U bend ulazi Miloš Sremački, koji je svirao 5 meseci. Krajem 2009. godine bend u novoj postavi snima singl 'The One', ali se ubrzo nakon snimanja razilazi sa Sremačkim. I pored toga, nastavljen je rad na novom albumu, a u junu 2010. godine na mesto bubnjara dolazi Robert Moldvaji (Grate).
Plug’n’ Play was formed in Novi Sad, in November, 2002. Initial band members were guitarist/vocalist Goran Beg, bassist Zoran Mandić and drummer Predrag Novković (ex Porshe Lynn). Two months after the band had been formed, Vasil Tomov-Flipp was recruited as the band’s leading vocalist and Goran, while retaining the responsibility of the guitarist, accepted the new role of the supporting vocalist. As the band members were becoming more acquainted with each other, they also became more musically attuned by playing mainly interpretations of popular rock songs. Plug’n’ Play had it’s debut in front of a live audience in Novi Sad Night Club Enter, in April 2003.
This live performance marked the end of the first phase of the band’s development. Consequently, the band decided to create its own music, which was mostly influenced by hard rock and grunge.
In autumn 2003, due to differences in musical preconceptions between the band’s leading vocalist and the rest of the band members, Flipp decided to leave, which in turn slightly delayed musical productivity of the band. Nonetheless, the band continued working without a leading vocalist until February 2004, when Srdjan Slankamenac-Slani (ex-Post Scriptum) joined the band as a new leading vocalist.
After a period of rehearsals with the new vocalist, Plug’n’Play commenced with its live performances mostly in Novi Sad Night Clubs. The band with it’s new vocalist Slani, had its first concert as a part of manifestation named “Saberimo se Novosadjani”, in NS Time club, on the 3rd of October 2004, after which the band had a series of live performances in all prominent nightclubs of Novi Sad.
In February 2005, Plug’n’Play recorded their first demo cd – ‘Plug-ins’ with three songs: ‘Plug’n’Play’, ‘Friend’ and ‘Angel’ (Massive Attack cover). The demo songs were recorded at ‘Zid’ studio in S. Kamenica and at ‘Digital tone works’ studio in Rumenka by the producer Dragan Alimpijevic – Pik.
In September 2005, the bend recorded a music video for the song Plug ’n’ Play. During late 2005 and early in 2006, this music clip was played on numerous local and national TV stations, as well as on the MTV Adria.
The next music video for the song “Friend” had a premiere at the beginning of June, 2006.
In the meantime, Plug’n’Play band appeared several times as the special guest in the concerts of popular rock bends. Some of these concerts include Del Arno Band in Trema Club, dedicated to disadvantaged children (Decije selo, Sremska Kamenica), on the 22nd of November 2005. Also, Plug’n’Play performed live as the special guest of Block Out bend, in Gradiliste Club on the 1st of April, 2006. Further, Plug ’n’ Play participated at the reinstated musical festival “String” in Subotica, on the 18th of August, 2006.
At the end of September 2006, Plug’n’Play played on a tour named “Days of Vojvidina in Istra” in Pula, Pazin and Buzet (Croatia), along with bands such as Zbogom Brus Lee and UMT.
Plug’n’Play recorded it's first album in 2007. The album is titled “Raise your voice” and it consists of 12 songs. The producer is yet again Dragan Alampijevic-Pik. Album release was followed by a promotion in Trema club in Novi Sad on november 2nd 2007. The band recorded a video for the song "Was it better when it was worse" and got back to live performances. In 2008. Plug'n'Play started working on the material for the new album and recorded the first 5 demo tracks. In the early 2009. Predrag Novković left the band, and the remaining band members continued to work on a new album. In november 2009. Miloš Sremački steps in as a drummer. Two months after that the band records a new single 'The One', but shortly after that Sremački diverged. Nevertheless, the band continued working on the new album, and in June 2010 Robert Moldvaji (Grate) comes in as a permanent drummer.
