ELECTRIC ORANGE PEEL-
Electric Orange Peel has been a band since 2013. They started out as just a group of friends jamming in a basement. Out of the blue they were offered a gig from keyboard player Marko Manastyrskyj’s other band at the time Free Rent. The four friends figured what the hell and took the gig, sat around joking about what they should call themselves and went with Electric Orange Peel (a name guitarist Austin Crumrine came up with)… And the rest is history.
Like it says above we are a four piece jam band whose music is focused on intricate compositions inspired by genres ranging from jazz/classical to funk/rock and all things in between. All four members in the band write songs, so we already have an extensive list of original material (the main chunk of which actually comes from our drummer Dylan Aughe). Our live performance is based completely on the concept of free form improvisation that is true to the moment. We don’t even make setlists, our guitar player Austin Crumrine will call out songs on the spot, sometimes in the middle of another song, based on how the room is feeling. After playing through our composed sections of songs we usually leave places where we can begin a jam, usually based around a cool chord progression that we can start out on. Our favorite thing to do by far in live shows though is to break away from those chord progressions and rhythms as a unit so we are truly creating on the spot improvised music as a group rather than just trading solos. That’s when our show gets truly Electric, there can be on the spot mode and key changes, different genres coming out of left field, and all-in-all when everything clicks it is just a really special time for all of us and (hopefully) everyone in attendance. Then when we come back to the structure to end the song it’s sort of a celebration for us and the audience to what just happened in the jam. We have been lucky enough to play major festivals in the jamband community like Summer Camp Music Festival and the Werk Out along with many others. We love playing live and love Ohio’s scene and can’t wait to see what the future holds for all the great bands! There is really something special in Ohio happening right now and we are just grateful to be a part of it!
Cincinnati, Ohio’s Rockstead is living proof that spreading good vibes and positivity, while also having a hellacious work ethic, will get you to where you want to be in life, both physically and spiritually. After a breakout 2015 that included multiple music festivals and concerts at venues across Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, – and having already completed two albums in that time span – Rockstead shows no signs of slowing their mission of bringing people together through music. Using this message, Rockstead combines a unique mix of reggae, rock, and punk derived from multitude of influences ranging from 311 to Sublime all the way to The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Foo Fighters.
By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, singer/guitarist Jake Burns, bassist Victor Falco, lead guitar Tanner Briscoe and drummer John Albertson, are hoping to define the landscape of today’s reggae-rock music scene. Courtney Phenicie ofCincyMusic.com out of Cincinnati, Ohio had this to say about Rockstead’s freshly released EP Rise, “The title track, “Rise” is a powerful reggae rock song that encapsulates the listener with the positive air to be able to rise above what is holding you back. To break the chains of whatever is oppressing you and rise to your highest, most enlightened state in order to make changes for yourself, the people around you, and hopefully the world.”
Rockstead would like to challenge you to Rise, to Wake Up and Live, and be the change that you want to see in the world. Make your way out to catch one of the hottest up and coming reggae-rock groups of the Midwest.
