Hailing from Pittsburgh, the Maverick Hodads are a surf/blues rock trio influenced by the sounds of The Chantays, Dick Dale, and various unknown surf acts with a progressive edge. Not sticking to one genre, the Hodads also explore various blues/classic rock sounds with a SRV/Hendrix/Eric Clapton vibe. The Maverick Hodads consist of drummer Dan DeLo, guitarist/bass/vocalist Chris “Groon” Gruneburg, and guitarist/bass/vocalist John Buck. Currently in the studio, the boys are hashing out a demo that will be available in 2013. If you’re a fan of songs concentrated on the fine art of drinking, surfing (even if you live 6 hours away from the beach), and animal house style mayhem, check out the Hodads.
