What to Expect
If you're looking for a lively show from a punk rock group, then Business Class is the band for you. Business Class was formed mainly to play amazing live shows like Green Day or Blink-182. It's an energetic show, great music, and just an overall good time.
Business Class was formed on October 31st, 2016 (Halloween) at Mount St. Charles Academy by Junior Dan Hoyt (guitarist and vocalist), 8th grader Michael Tenreiro (bassist and vocalist), and Sophomore Eddard Moon (former drummer). The guys had a common interest in Green Day and other punk bands from the 90s. In February 2017, Dan and Mike, along with fellow Junior Ben Emerson recorded at Newcastle Sounds in Barrington, RI with the help of the recording engineer there, Randy Hunicke. They recorded a series of 11 songs that comprised their debut album Ignite!. Ignite! went on PreRelease March 17th, 2017 and fully released to iTunes, Google Play, and many other stores on May 12th, 2017. The band has been reviewed by several music blogs such as Music Emissions that claimed that, "Business Class deliver a kind of pop-punk, somewhat reminiscent of Green Day or even the Buzzcocks, which offers an update on what was, the now late, departed punk rock." Business Class overall was formed under one simple goal, to play awesome live shows and have fun while living their dreams.
