Noah Benefiel, Zack Eldridge, Shawn Imel, Seth Campbell and Seth Reigelsperger began playing music together as a hobby, but about a year ago they began performing publicly with an inaugural gig at Canal Street Tavern. After playing shows around Dayton, Market Street Dream was convinced to take part in the 29th Annual Dayton Band Playoffs by Canal Street Tavern owner Mick Montgomery. They will move on to Round 3 of the Playoffs, performing next on August 22nd at Canal Street Tavern.
Kevin Moss, Chris Karnes, DJ Miller, Pat Riley all share a love for "weird, loud music." Moss, Karnes and Riley formed the band when they were attended Wright State University along with Christopher Olvis (former co-host of Evening Excursions on WYSO). Miller joined the band later to replace Olvis on guitar and Northwest Ordinance also began to gravitate from 60s style garage rock to more of a 70s punk sound.
The band has recorded 3 albums and an EP with Columbus Discount Records. Their latest album, Walk Through the Fire, is available digitally through their bandcamp page.
New Vega makes their second visit to the WYSO studios to perform an acoustic set and share tracks from their upcoming album, Tempo. The band will celebrate the album's release on July 30th at Canal Street Tavern with The Future Laureates and Grenades!?
Nick Kizirnis and John Dubuc began playing together in The Obvious in the 1980s at Canal Street Tavern where Deni Wilson ran sound. Year later, the trio formed the Fair Shakes and their reggae rock alter-egos, The Rude Boys. Here the Fair Shakes perform live on Kaliedoscope and chat with host Juliet Fromholt about their roots in the Dayton Music scene, balancing two bands and upcoming shows.
When Ed. Vs. Radio disbanded, Jason Gilmore and Nigel Verboon decided that they wanted to continue playing together, but they wanted to do something different from the pop-punk style they had been playing together for years. This experimentation led to the creation of We Were Animals and the addition of I Died Trying's Mark on drums. The band has released a two song demo with plans for a full album release in July.
