A Southern CT Hard Rock and Metal Band forged over a bed of hot coals, pounded in to Cold Steel. An aggressive, rude, obnoxious, say what you want attitude of writing. Songs inspired by actual accounts and life events. A unique blend of Hard Rock, Punk and Metal with a Raw Groove. From rib crushing riffs and battle torn percussion to good time party anthems. You'll find yourself singing along to catchy hooks and fist pumping rhythms with soaring vocals, heavy guitar, pounding bass and driving drums.

The John Spignesi Band

Formed in 2015, The John Spignesi Band has steadily climbed the ranks of the Jam Scene.
What makes this band unique?  This is a question often asked by first time listeners.  It could be the experience, amounting to over 100 years of playing in a live setting.  It could be the pulsing energy.  Or maybe it's the extensive song catalogue, featuring both originals and covers that take you on a wild ride.  Words cannot do it justice.  It is truly an experience.
You'll just have to see it for yourself.
