The bands performance can be explained as emotional and powerful. Kevin Patane gives it his all with heartfelt emotion on lead vocals and rhythm guitar. He enjoys singing any genre of music, from R&B to Country. Robert Miley has a vast knowledge of rock music, from classic to modern, and loves to be creative on lead guitar. The two were friends for many years before finding out that they both share the same passion of rock music and playing the guitar. Right at the turn of 2013, Hard Labor picks up a new bass player, Tom Daniels. Tom has been a very important part of the start of Hard Labor's come back. But after getting re-assigned to the Coast Guard Station in Jacksonville, Hard Labor has added an extra member to the band as Tom continues to add to various aspects to the music. So the next time you see Hard Labor around, please stop by to welcome James Ates to the Hard Labor team of friends, fans, and family.
