Hello fellow UGers, meet our next featured band of the week - 3 piece punk/emo act Strike 3!
Our band, Strike 3, is a punk / emo band from Ellicott City, MD. We currently have 3 members, and are looking for a fourth, but manage none the less. There isn't really a great story behind our name, a girl in Andrew's yearbook class thought it up after listening to our band and saying that we are really good and can't go on without a name. And viola; Strike 3, its from baseball, it kinda seems fitting to the whole punk/emo scene.
We practice pretty much as often as possible, 2-3 times a week, and record with Brendan's basement studio. People should listen to our music because it is pretty good. It has a nice mixture of good vocals, catchy guitar and bass riffs, along with powerful drums. We haven't really played a real show yet. We have performed for a couple of people who have been around during jams and family as well as given out demos produced in Brendan's basement. We don't have any pictures of our band playing but we do have the more important thing which is music. Our influences consist mainly of Yellowcard, The Startine Line, Allister, Dashboard Confessional, and Green Day.
The band currently consists of signer/guitar/songwriter Brendan Biondi, 17, bass/backups Andrew Lassise, 16, and Drummer, Max Kromer, 15. We all know each other from school and jamming with each other. Andrew and Max were previously in a band called Nonpolar and Brendan was in a much more successful band called The Denouncements.
