The Tall Weeds / Bio

The Tall Weeds are a six piece original rock band based out of Beacon, New York. The band was formed by Michael Zentz and Patrick Reay during a snow storm in 2011 when they were snowed in with an acoustic guitar, a loop pedal, and a few beers. The Tall Weeds are: Patrick Reay – lead vocals and harmonica, Michael Zentz – rhythm guitar and back-up vocals, Whitey – bass and back-up vocals, Billy Hopkins – lead guitar, Brian Newsholme - Keyboard and Dave M – drums and back-up vocals. They pull from an eclectic mix of influences and from the powers of the Hudson Valley to create their music. They live by their lyric and motto “Tap into the energy!”
