Welcome to Smashbox Symphony featuring John West

Hailing from the Mid Atlantic region Smashbox Symphony has a cast of characters in their lineup known both regionally and nationally. Three members of the band are from Capitol Recording Artists group "Facedancer". Facedancer was signed to Capitol Records in the early 80’s and had charted albums both in the US and the UK. The lineup on "One" consisted of Jeff Adams (Guitar, Guitar Synth, Vocals), David Utter (Guitar , Vocals) and Billy Trainor (Drums, Percussion, Keyboards) joining them are Steve Carodiskey from the Drivin' Livid, and the Jamie LaRitz Band (Bass, Vocals) , John Suchy (Keyboards from Hectic Red and well known Singer/Songwriter from Philadelphia John West (Lead Vocals)

Though the bands roots were always in live performance, Smashbox Symphony "One "came together primarily as old friends getting together to record a concept album and show project. . So, the picture was painted, following through with that concept...

*To date all the members of Smashbox Symphony are involved in other live and recording projects , but they will reunite for some live events at some point in the future!!!
