About Band

Band Biography
The band was formed when Elias Sabella (guitar, vocals) and Samir Nassif (bass) wanted to make a rock band, but not just a regular slam your guitar band, but a mix of classic rock (such as good ol’ AC/DC) and modern pop-punk (Blink 182). With only two members, we seriously were in need of some more strength in numbers, and therefore recruited friend and pianist Samer El Hage. With only three members in the band, we realised we were in desperate need of a drummer and a second rhythm guitarist. With the help of a friend (Mike), we found their drummer Siina Hawker (who is in another band called Shrimp Cocktail who was almost immediately convinced to join the band. Finally Elias asked a classmate Olek Zyborski to join in the position of a rhythm guitarist, and he also happens to be a great solo shredder, as influenced by Mettalica. (The only letdown was that he, at the time, had no experience with any other bands or performing in front of an audience. That has changed now though). Now with a complete band, we just successfully completed our first gig at the ‘Trampoline’ back in February. The band was nominated to open for one of the greatest band in the world Coldplay. The band has also been feautured on magazines, newspaper and radios.
