Based in North Metro Atlanta, NoZtalgia pounds out the best in Classic Rock and dance music. Two vocalists singing harmonies and their sax, flutist, and keys sets them apart.
Their set list includes the biggest hits from the Eagles, Steve Miller, ZZ Top, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, The Beatles, The Doobie Brothers, .38 Special, Loverboy, Bryan Adams, and many more, as well as dance songs.
The members' experience includes touring on the road and original CD’s with other groups. NoZtalgia also provides expertise in organizing party programs and wedding receptions--the premier focus is on the Bride,Groom, family and friends. A satisfied audience is our #1 goal.
Garry and the band (I don't know all the names) truly ROCKED. We hired them to play our "Chastain Night" at our Pool/Club House. I was very impressed their musical talent. They played for 3+ hours, with a repertoire of songs from the 70's, 80's & 90's. The songs included sets from Bryan Adams, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd and Rolling Stones to name but a few. I'm already planning next years event, with Noztalgia as the band.
Response from NoZtalgia Classic Rock:
Aiden, we truly enjoyed performing for your enthusiastic crowd and look forward to another great Chastain Night next year. Thanks again for having us participate in your wonderful evening
NoZtalgia played for our Reunion on June 2, 2018 and we could not have been happier with their choice of music, the way they played it and the polished professionalism of the band. Garry Sinchak was a dream to work with and the band was early and set up ready to rock in a timely manner. I HIGHLY recommend this band. Each musician in the band played the songs to perfection. We were a group of about 100 and of them all, there was only positive kudos to me for having found the best possible band to play at our event. If you need a great band, call NoZtalgia. I promise you will not be disappointed.
I have been coordinating parties for years and NoZtalgia Classic Rock is great and I would highly recommend them. This is the second time the band has played at one of our neighborhood parties. Both parties were a big success and everyone enjoyed the music. They are very good about communicating prior to the event, come early to set up and make sure all is ready when the party begins and the band members are all super nice. And most important, the music is awesome. They play a great mix of classic rock from easy listening to get down and rock dance music. So fun!!! Can’t wait until the next time I get to hear them!!
Really enjoyed this group at our party. Great music selections, and great musicians. Garry does a super job with audience interaction, and introducing the songs. We had to reschedule, and they were happy to work with us on booking a new date. We're looking forward to having them back next year!
Sat. Night's fundraiser held at our church's gym was a so much fun because of the great music provided by NoZtalgia. The dance floor was packed the whole night! What a fun time. They played a great selection, weren't ear splitting and best of all, were really nice! I'd recommend them to anyone looking for great party band.
We had our Version of Chastain Night at our neighborhood, Noztagia went above expectation, every one loved the music and made every one to get up and dance.
Comunication prior the event was very fluent and clear. Great price and affordable.
NOZTALGIA is coming back to our neighbourhood.
When invited to go and see this band play, I was a bit reluctant as I am not much into Rock Bands, but OMG, was I in for a surprise! They were captivating! With each song, I thought, "this has to be their best," but then others only got better and better and better, as before I knew it, my planned brief stay lasted for their entire show and then I still could not leave as everyone was shouting "more, more, more!" and with my hoping they would play the entire night. What was fascinating was not just their excellence in playing, but their style! Their ability to engage the audience and to make everyone feel as if they were at a music fest or something, was beyond comparison. I then gave them my number and begged that they would text me for all their gigs as where ever they are playing, I will be. Simply, the best band I have ever heard - wow!
This is not your average garage rock band. These guys are professional, have a tight sound and play with a punch. The songs sound like they should. The players are of my generation. For me, the "special parts" and harmonies of the classic rock songs I grew up with, love and listen out for are faithfully reproduced. It makes listening and dancing to NoZtalgia even more enjoyable and makes me smile to hear such detail. You can see the players enjoy it too. For example, listen out for "Locomotive Breath" - Garry, Ramon, and Mark drive a hard-charging beat, while the combination of Shon's gravelly voice and Mary's flute is amazing - just like Jethro T!! NoZtalgia rocks - thank you for making our farewell party awesome!
I got a chance to see these guys play a few months ago and had a great time. These are not young kids playing classic rock songs. These are guys that grew up on these songs and know how they should sound. They were a lot of fun to see and I hope I can see them again soon.

Lead guitar and Vocals - Shon Harp

He also plays bass in the successful heavy metal group Ender’s Game, who have several original CDs published, and guitar in yet another heavy band. Shon teaches guitar, bass, drums, and piano at the North Fulton School of Music in addition to his corporate career.
Lead Guitar Jim Crossley
Grew up in Savannah, GA in a fairly musical family. Been playing for almost 40 years, everything from Abba to Zappa, mostly self-taught, learned by watching Hee Haw and trying to replicate the jingles on TV commercials. Played in a number of Funk/Rock/Party bands while attending Georgia Tech in the 80's. Then wife/job/kids happened. Kids are grown now, so out playing again, with both Noztalgia and another blues/rock band.
Bass and Vocals- Jeremy Harrison
The least tenured member of NoZtalgia, Jeremy Harrison brings his bass and diverse musical background to the band. Originally from Spruce Pine , NC he’s a true “band nerd”: he started playing trumpet in the 5th grade and continued on in the high school marching band, concert band, jazz band, stage band, pep band, hat band and orchestra. Finding his way to bass, he joined the always-underpaid-never-overplayed cover band “the Scrubs”. He wisely gravitated toward being a thrash bassist in the mid 80’s playiong for such legendary bands as: Red Eye, Crazy Ivan, Blunt, and Volatile. In the decades since Volatile’s last show, Jeremy has turned into an IT nerd. Jeremy lives in McDonough, GA with his son, two birds, a cat, and a fish.
Keyboards Jimmy Graft
Jimmy is NoZtalgia’s youngest member. Even though he is young in age, he is an old soul and loves listening to “NoZtalgic” music such as the Beatles, Pink Floyd etc., so he fits in well with the rest of NoZtalgia with no problem. Jimmy has been playing piano since the age of 5, and has no plans to stop. He currently plays in numerous bands, some which include the Life Teen band at St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, the Jordan B Band, (a contemporary Christian music group), and his newest venture, Electropop, a tribute band to the electronic music pioneer Kraftwerk. Jimmy is a student at KSU and is majoring in Electrical Engineering.
Drums and Vocals Garry Sinchak
Originally from Struthers Ohio, Garry began playing drums in the fifth grade and continued on to perform in bands while attending Youngstown State University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, majoring in Marketing and minoring in Management. After a long break from music while pursuing a successful career in business, he formed NoZtalgia in 2012. Garry has been Master of Ceremonies for several hundred wedding and parties over the years as a DJ which gives this band an edge over customer customization in a great party agenda if needed.
