Mechanical Hall A / Bio

Mechanical Hall A brings a blend of country infused rock and roll from the heart of the Arizona desert.

The band was formed in August of 2012 when vocalist/guitarist Michael Callahan posted videos of some new material on YouTube. Longtime friend, bassist John Parente, noticed a post on Facebook linking to the videos and soon a collaboration was born.

Soon after, drummer Tommy Hammer joined the band and they went about writing material to take to the stage. They made their live debut in March of 2013 at Joe’s Grotto, accompanied by guitarist Patrick Wright to fill out the sound.
As a trio, they released their debut EP, “Parts Unknown” later that year. Upon its release, they set out on an exhaustive search for a permanent fourth member. After many months of auditions, Peter Smith joined the band and they continued to play large and small venues in the Phoenix area.

With the addition of Mr. Smith and a renewed energy, the band is currently booking regional shows in the fall/winter of 2014/15 and is working on writing and recording new material, which is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2015.
