Just a pack of high-school, pop-punk, offbeat junkies with an affinity for blaring horns and rocking rhythm section grooves. Great for an opening act as our sets currently last 20-30 minutes. We will bring a good time no matter what the show is with our eccentric stage bits, band "choreography", and, of course, our driven ska-punk music.
They were great. Besides for the sax player he was the weak link for sure.
Response from Crying Over Cleveland:
Glad to hear you enjoyed it! Sorry to hear you didn't like the sax so much. If you have any feedback you think would be helpful for him feel free to tell me and I'll let him know

What to Expect
Crying Over Cleveland has an energetic sound and stage presence that would make a great addition to any live ska/punk/DIY/reggae/indie show. In other words, if you need an all-ages friendly opener to play for 20-30 minutes, this is the perfect band for your show! The band's sets are driven, loud, and fun in a way that'll get your audience perfectly warmed up for a headlining band or even just the rest of your party.
Crying Over Cleveland is a Ska Punk band based out of Park City started by five students out of Park City High School. The band was originally formed by singer and guitarist Sam Bradford and had since gained members Ryan Mitchell (bass), Jordan Fajardo-Bird (drums), as well as Nathan Wales and Jonas "Daddy Straps" Peterson (trombone and saxophone). Since the formation of the band at the beginning of the summer of 2016, Crying Over Cleveland has built up an exciting repertoire of originals as well as ska covers of various songs and has begun to develop an energetic live show that they can't wait to take to the stage. Though they don't want to seem too desperate for gigs, they admittadly will pretty much play whatever show they are offered as long as they can logistically (whatever that means).
Additional Booking Notes
We are capable of providing a PA system as well as most of the gear we need. However this is not ideal. So, on an ideal gig a sound system with monitors and whatever speakers are needed for your venue would be provided with the venue. We will bring our own amps, patch cables, and drumset. We do require 2-3 vocal microphones. We can provide these if necessary but ideally the venue would have these. Then we absolutely do need the venue to provide two horn microphones (one for saxophone and one for trombone). Pretty much any mic will work for these as long as it can stand up to high volumes.
Various original and cover ska tunes.
