Offbeat Accent started in the summer of 2009 with Tom Palmieri on drums. The band had about five songs written and were scheduled to play a battle of the bands at the Palladium in Worcester. A week before the show Tom couldn't play or be in the band anymore. With a weeks notice, a god among us mere mortals, Ryan Egan, jumped in a learned all the songs and played a great show. The band is writing and recording now and wants you to love them.
