ITHIKA a four piece high energy rock experience formed in the summer of 2004 out of the ashes of a few well known local bands. ITHIKA has had the privilege of opening for many incredible national acts since forming, here's the list. Three Days Grace, Sum 41, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Seether, Finger Eleven, Flyleaf, Evans Blue, Sick Puppies, Fair to Midland, Cold, Trapt and Cypress Hill. Nick Shannon lead vocals, Jason Coots lead guitar, Jimmie Gard bass guitar and Rob Potts drums, combine for one of the most lethally talented acts to ever perform in the Dayton area. ITHIKA plays by their own rules when it comes to their music, not following any standards, yet setting them along the way. ITHIKA is one of the first local rock acts to blend new emotional rock with great classic rock such as Van Halen, Billy Idol, Ozzy and others. They also play a steady rotation of the hottest venues in their area, some of these clubs include, W.O. Wrights in Beavercreek, Bojangles in West Carrollton, Stubbies in Vandalia and GZ Pete's in Springfield. ITHIKA has also been a mainstay at some of Dayton's biggest live event's which include, XFEST 2-007, WTUE's 2005 & 2006 St. Patrocks Day at Flanagan's and the 2005 & 2006 HauntFest/Boo & Brew In the Oregon District, playing infront of thousands at those shows. In January of 2007 ITHIKA aquired not one but two major beer sponsorships from Miller Light and Corona through Fisher and Bonbright distributing in Dayton and Springfield. ITHIKA's future goals are to expand venues of playing throughout Ohio and the Midwest and capture the attention of many eager fans that have been waiting for the vibe, sound, and soul, they provide live.
