After a few weeks off, i am back with the Wednesday Music Run-Down, a break down of bands i've recently met or performed with!
PETE MAKO and THE BOOGIE MEN have booked There very first show in Akron Ohio at Chuck's Steakhouse! i Don't think there is a better venue for me to debut my full band than Chuck's, that place is like home. It's so exciting. I can't wait to bring my brand of awesome Rock N' Roll to you all! Event invites and info is still TBA, but it's gonna be awesome. The date is October 2nd.
Next, i've kept this on the down low for a few days, but by this weekend, my music will be live on Itunes, Spotify, Pandora, Google Music, Amazon MP3, iHeartradio, and Just about every other major online music retailer! I'm Stoked. It's great that i can get my music on so many platforms to help get my name out there!
Last, before the bands, HELP ME OUT!!! I am trying to gain 1000 likes by October on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/iampetemako
it would mean the world to me! If you have friends who are music fans, nerd fans, or just cool people in general, send them an invite, each and every like goes a long long way.
Alright, enough of that, now what you are here for, some awesome bands!
This Seven Piece Band from Toronto Blew me away. Dubbed as an " Indie Folk Rock" Band, they consist of multiple instruments, Banjos, mandolin =, lap/steel guitars, saw, vibrphones...amongst the drums and bass/guitars. They just had an awesome vibe and sound.

Hailing from Allston, MA, Houseguest is a punk-ish-non-genre-labled band. A 4 Piece founded in May of 2012. I had a lot of fun playing with these gents at Chuck's in Akron. I helped them get the show after an issue at a different venue. I also bought one of there sweet shirts. Check these guys out for sure.
