EDIT: New demos up now! Listen to them here.


Hey, I'm Joey, the lead guitarist of Expecto Patronum! (and also the bassist of Wonka).

We're an alternative rock band from Groton, MA, and our influences range from Weezer to Say Anything to Minus the Bear. We've only been around for a couple months now, but we have videos from our shows up. Let us know what you think!

In all fairness, we've only played two gigs ever, but I see what you mean. Thanks, and please feel free to give us some more feedback!

I saw that your were from Groton, and was going to ask if you knew of Wonka or The Cryptkeepers, but then I read the whole thing and saw that you're actually in Wonka.
I'd listen to your music, but my internet is being a turd at the moment and I can't.
Like punk the way it used to be? Deranged Youth Its like what Warped Tour should be!

Want to hear something mind-blowing? Pit O' Bodies Its like an amateur hypnotist plus the Spanish Inquisition!

Not bad. Drums need a lot of work, especially on the fills. Ditch the Harry Potter name.

Fair enough, but I doubt we'll change the name anytime soon. The way I see it, people could either like it or think it's stupid, and so far people have taken to it.

Sounds like it could be decent, I couldn't really hear anything but the vocals and the bass a bit. (Listened to That's Just Like The Matrix).

Get recording and put them up on myspace!

Hey guys!

We're looking into playing this festival of sorts called "Exposure Fest". However, we need lots of good ratings to get it, so if you could click on the link below and give us a 5 star rating, we'd love you forever! Thanks!

Also, this only works with humour.
You would be funny if you did parodies.

Again, we've taken the name into consideration. The people that go to our shows and listen to our music like it, so until that changes, the name won't. If you have anything to say about our actual music, that would be more than welcome
