Based our of south Louisiana. This group of southern boys with a strong appreciation for music started with one thing in mind: to re-establish a music scene in southern Louisiana that so desperately needed good quality rock & roll.
It all started back in 2001, when 3 eager musicians agreed to come together and pump life back into the deminishing music scene. Swing Arm consists of local music scene veterans including members of former bands such as Ricky Fayette (Bass and Vocals) of Class X, August Heat, and Valenport, Donald Falgout (Drums) of Class X, August Heat and LA Rose, Eric Orgeron (Guitar and Vocals) of Class X, Majere, and Sudden Impact and Grant Falgout (Bass and Vocals) of Class X, Black Friday, Psychol and Cobra.
Powered by bone crunching guitars, rumbling bass, and head pounding drums. It leaves the listener leaving with the satisfaction of hearing music the way it was intended to be played. The vocals bring the creation to a new level offering soft almost soothing, then grunge like destruction. With 3 vocalist in the band, the harmonies take on a new level.
Some influences include Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many many more.
The music does speak for itself but a Swing Arm Live show is a must see. The power and energy is captivating.
One thing is for sure, you'll leave with a smile on your face.
