This is the true story of 5 strange people picked to play in a band and have their music taped. Find out what happens when people stop being soloists and start getting real. The Band Up...
While this particular band is in its infancy, its lineup is comprised of musicians who have played in other musical acts for the better part of the last 10 years (Red Dye 9, Big Slik, October Babies, Tiny Water Flea Clocks). The band Up is a combination of 5 different musical influences, styles, experiences, and inspirations, brought together to create a catalog of music that lends itself to an energetic live performance. Genre : Alternative / Progressive / Pop rock with a hint of folk, and a slight taste of country.
The band :
Chris O’Keefe – Vocals
Dale King – Guitar, Vocals
Cesar Diaz – Drums, Vocals
Steve Gogola – Bass
Mike Zeilinski – Keyboards
Based in Southeast Michigan (Ypsilanti / Ann Arbor / Pinckney) the band up has recently started selectively playing shows in the area (Detroit, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Kalamazoo). Our philosophy is to put Quality above Quantity when it comes to gigs. Each show is to be different from the others (trying to limit ourselves to one performance per month) in order to provide a unique experience for our growing following. Different set lists / themes / supporting acts, etc… are the product of pushing ourselves creatively to provide a new show for our audiences every time they see us play.
