Pause 456 / Bio

Michael Agostini (Lead guitar, background vocals) A talented self-taught guitarist, Mike has been part of a band since high school. He met up with Anthony not long after, formed a band, and the two of them began a lifetime love of playing music together. Since then, Mike has toured the US as part of several different groups. He’s also had the honor of opening for The Outlaws, YNT, the Dixie Chicks, Pat Travers, and many other top musical performers. Mike and Anthony formed Pause 456 a few years ago and have been rocking the westside scene ever since.

Anthony Broderick (Vocals, bass) Anthony got his first bass guitar at age 10 and hasn't put it down since. At a young age he met Mike and the two developed a love of music that led to their own original tunes as well as interesting takes on cover songs. Anthony has been rocking the bass line in bands on and off for most of his adult life. When Mike was looking to form a new group, he found the only bass player that could make the grade was Anthony. Thus Pause 456 was born and the duo of 25 years was reunited.

Chad Nodine (Lead vocals, guitar) Chad, another talented musician who learned on his own, got his start playing in garage bands at a young age. A good friend showed him a few chords and from there his love for the guitar grew and grew. After a brief stint in a Chicago band called Northbound Train, Chad gravitated out of the music scene. Upon meeting Mike, he was quickly pulled back in by the delicious melodies and camaraderie of the Pause 456 crew. Chad has been rocking with Pause since January 2012 and looks forward to what lies ahead.

Sean “Bow” Bowen (Drums, background vocals). Bow, a native Oregonian grew up in Baker (City). He received his first drum lesson from his father at age eight. The coordination to perform that first lesson came at thirteen. From that day on, with or without drumsticks in hand he’s incessantly “drumming” in concert to music first on vinyl and radio then CD’s and now iPod. Bow learned the craft and theory of music in various bands and singing groups beginning in middle school through graduation. He played drums with a garage band for a number of years performing at private engagements, and celebrations, through the ‘90’s. The group dissolved after a time, and his wife suggested he find another band to join. Fortune (and Craigslist) showed him the way to Pause 456 in May 2014. Bow, inspired to add his skill to this considerable pool of talent, is ready to rock the masses.
