Founded in mid 2012, Last Shot Down has finally overcome line up changes, attitudes, egos, name changes and inexperienced players to emerge better sounding than ever. Blending older alternative and hard rock with newer modern hard rock, Last Shot Down is racing onto the local music scene with no-holds-barred hard rock music. We don't do country, top 40, classic rock, period. We want to stay true to the music that inspires us and our followers.
The band was founded by lead singer Tommy Angel of Reidsville, NC. He and a friend decided to put a band together after being out of the music scene for a while. Tommy has learned a little bass guitar to help add some diversity to the group. Scouring Craigslist for players, the next piece of the puzzle was found from Elon, NC rhythm guitar player, Chris Boswell. Chris was in several local bands, but took some time off from music but has returned to his music roots. Bass player changes ended us with Olean, NY native, Adam Sorokes. He's a transplant from up north adjusting well to southern living. Whether it's bass guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, singing, or fishing, he's a true asset to the group. Next up was the great find of Twig Sticks, our drummer in charge. Twig was actually already scheduled to come out and audition for us a while back, but we settled on a younger, less experienced drummer, much to our dismay. But, as fate would have it, we were able to get him out and have him play with us, very well I might add. And finally, our lead guitar player, Jordan Young. Also hailing from Reidsville NC, Jordan brings a wealth of talent to the band. Jordan has very diverse musical tastes, which makes him a phenomenal player. With his addition to the band, it was complete. No longer looking back, Last Shot Down is expecting great things in the year to come. The puzzle is complete.
