Formed in early 2013, Shadow Of The Flag set out to do one thing. To make lasting music…and that they have.
Drummer Jeff Lees and guitarist Angelo Morreale, who dwell in the Pittsburgh, PA area, wrote and recorded some songs with a natural adulation. Yet, vocals would soon need to be provided, but by who? A global search began and ended quickly and close by. After wading through several submissions the choice was clear, Gordon McCready from Toronto Canada became the front man for Shadow Of The Flag!
With a slew of music both written and recorded, look out for an official release in the near future. With the addition of guitarist Don Sigmund, SOTF has begun to support their sound live as well. Booking shows from Pittsburgh to Toronto, and everywhere in between, taking it to the stage is where they really connect.
Make sure not to miss the train when SOTF drives a stake in your town!
Spinning Jenny was formed in 2011 after playing their first gig at a family reunion. Thanks to the kindness of John DiCarlo, frontman of the U.S. Kids, Spinning Jenny was then asked to open for the U.S. Kids at a benefit show held in Steubenville, Ohio. That became not only their first public gig, but the launchpad of nearly three years of playing and making music. Spinning Jenny is proud to say they are a family, with the group consisting of Dr. John Balzano and his three daughters, Julia (18), Talia (15) and Angelina (13). Dr. Balzano passed on his musicianship and love of music, particularly rock-and-roll, to his three daughters from an early age. Before long, the girls learned how to play guitar, drums, bass and keys, and that foundation led them to officially starting Spinning Jenny. During their live shows, audiences can expect to hear a wide variety of music genres — including old-school rock-and-roll, the latest hits on the radio and alternative rock hits — ensuring that there’s something for every age to enjoy. The next step for Spinning Jenny was creating their own music. They were incredibly blessed to meet Lou Contumelio and Dan Bozek of Aardvark Productions, a recording studio in Steubenville. Right away, Spinning Jenny knew they were a perfect match and began working on their debut album, “Outside The Lines,” which mixes rock, alternative rock and pop to create a unique blend of songs for everyone to enjoy. Eight songs later, they finished and released their debut album to the public. In the meantime, Spinning Jenny had filmed their first music video with Shooters Productions of Martins Ferry, Ohio, for their song, “Outside The Lines.” Like the album, the members of Spinning Jenny are very excited about their first music video and are proud to share it. No matter what the future holds for Spinning Jenny, their love of music and love for each other as a family will continue to drive them onward.
Formed nearly 11 years ago under the guise of Access Denied, Unbroken Soul brings you original hard rock / heavy metal from Western Pennsylvania. The groups influences range from The Beatles and Black Sabbath to today’s modern Bullet for My Valentine and Disturbed. Bringing together different playing techniques and style and molding them into what can only be considered no nonsense hard rock. The band decided on the name change to Unbroken Soul in 2013 due to some members moving on to other projects, but the core remained to continue on and conquer all. Playing with classic acts such as LA Guns, Funny Money (KIX), Chris Holmes (of WASP), The Bullet boys, and Bang Tango, the band modified out from the late 80s/early 90s hair band feel to the aggressive, emotional, in your face, from the heart music they play today. Look for them with local hard rock and metal acts Homicide Black, Silk9, After the Fall, LoveSick, 2KD, The Hellfire Club, NightHunter, and many others.
Unbroken Soul is: Rob Wolfe – Vocals, Tim Doverspike – Drums, Greg Gunder – Bass, Shawn Donahugh Jr – Guitar and Vocals, and Shawn Donahugh Sr – Guitar and Vocals
About The Redlines: When one looks at all the pieces that shape The Redlines it comes down to one thing: Rock & Roll. Hailing from just north of Pittsburgh, PA, the 4-piece band has taken personal influences and past experience to create a sound they call, American Rock & Roll, a unique blend of twangy roots rock and crunching power-pop. No strangers to the stage or studio, Brian Seese and Jason Lizzi share lead vocal and guitar duties while Tony Vinski (bass) and Mark Ciorra (drums) fill out the rhythm section to create songs with a classic feel but delivered with a fury. Their latest album, the 2016 EP “This Road Can Go On” on Swade Records, features the single “County Road”, heard on Pittsburgh’s WXDX (105.9 The X), Butler’s WLER (97.7), Youngstown, Ohio’s WNCD (93.3 The Wolf), and is in the regular rotation of Tri Lakes Radio out of Colorado Springs, CO.
Once upon a time, a faction of Pro-Wrestlers grew tired of winning championship titles from all across the world. With no challenges left ahead of them, they decided to form a band, a band of which the likes have never been seen before. From Parts Unknown (somewhere in PIttsburgh, PA), the Slobberknockers were born. The first and best Wrasslin-Core band known to humankind, the Slobberknockers musically stomp mud holes in your ass and walk ’em dry, one tune at a time.
