Noise in the Basement came together completely by accident. 2 mediocre guitarist and a beginner bassist quickly became a drummer, a guitarist and a bassist...invited a friend who could run some lead guitar and identified another buddy who dreamed of singing on a stage...next thing you know...BOOM...we are making music. Just over two years into this, we have completed a long set of cover songs and now are writing our own songs. We love all kinds of music...but, we tend to gravitate toward more of a dirty, alternative type sound...(White Stripes, Black Keys, Hives, Atlas Genius, Franz Ferdinand...to name a few). This is a lot of fun for us and we have enjoyed playing venues in the DC area like Hard Rock Cafe, Artomatic, The State Theater, Rhodeside Grill, Empire and The Jammin' Java . Derek Argust (bass), Andy Krakowski (guitar and vocals), David Spink (guitar), Alex Sirpis (drums and vocals) and Andy Bucholz (lead vocals). Come see us some time...our energy is enough to draw you in...the music is just a bonus.
