"Duke Maroon is an up and coming band that doesn't take itself too seriously. Our genre could be called sarcastarock, but since we added Alex-Michael Alleva and Greg Ondo we've certainly become a more technical act. Are influences are extremely varied, but a few bands we really admire are Primus, Ween, Pink Floyd, Pig Destroyer, Pearl Jam, and Swans. Duke Maroon is a band that if nothing else will entertain an audience thanks to the insanity of our singer and front man, Gene Meyer."

"We start off the Lehigh Valley Underground Artist Q&A series with Doug Keller. Doug is the bassist for Philly-based folk rock outfit, The Band of Rivals, and the guitarist for Duke Maroon, a punk/sarcastarock band (pictured above). Beyond his bands, Doug is an emerging player in the Philly scene, and shared some of the many lessons he’s learned about creating a scene that benefits all involved."
